"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." Luke 10:25-37
Habitat for Humanity (HFH) works in partnership with God and people everywhere to develop communities with God's people in need by building and renovating houses worldwide. It is also an easy and fun way to introduce mission work to people who have not previously been engaged as missionaries.
Teams of volunteers join with HFH professionals to help construct and renovate homes for families in need. Habitat teach the volunteers the skills needed for each task and, together with the families, the whole team on-site work to provide the families with the home that they need.
Habitat makes a huge impact on both the families and the volunteers and the results of the mission are clearly visible to all involved. Secondly, it helps our teams see and feel the real results of God's work. This mission is a concrete way to see real impact in today's world. There are two ways in which Habitat evangelizes: firstly, all new homeowners are provided with a Bible and secondly, Habitat members are able to bear witness at a one-on-one level with the people who they interact with on the site and in the community.
The teams are generously supported through donations of the congregation, but each team member has to help raise the funds needed through a sponsoring webpage and promote it through friends and familys. Every year in the Spring time there is a Concert organized at ACP in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Paris. The Concert will be on 19 May at 20h. This generates a large part of the funds needed for our trips. Volunteers can assist with everything from selling tickets, setting up, ushering, preparing and cooking the buffet, serving drinks, and cleaning up. There are also opportunities throughout the year, including Christmas and Easter, to support Habitat by buying cookies and other delicious baked goods.
How can I Help
