Walls Up, Halleluiah!
Despite a period of gray and wet weather lately, wall raising day for our 51st home and Faith Build dawned bright and clear. Members of our Faithful Few crew, gathered together in a prayer circle with future homeowner Chantal Smith and Pastor Bob from Bethany United Methodist church on September 18th to bless the site and work to be done. Upon reflection, Pastor Bob said, "We are blessed to help Chantal, not just Bethany but the church community as a whole...The blessings on those who give of themselves, comeback, multiply and runneth over." Amen!
Con Chellis, local Allstate agent and board member was also there and was recognized for his donation through Allstate's Hands in the Community program. Because of Chellis’ outstanding volunteerism, The Allstate Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to the Dorchester
Habitat for Humanity. Shortly after the presentation, Con and the rest of the crew joined Chantal in raising the walls of her home.
The Summerville Journal Scene also made an appearance that morning and wrote a very nice article about the Faith Build. Read it here.
