So Proud

As we walked into the complex where the opening ceremonies were to be held we were greeted by applause from the future home owners. I damn near cried. These people have put months of sweat equity into their new homes and they are so grateful for the help that they stayed by the entrance and applauded all the volunteers that came through. This man was so proud of his little girl. It is amazing to think that her first steps and earliest memories will be of her family’s new house. This project is building 82 houses together in a neighborhood, so all of these strangers have come together to build their new community. The whole city knows about it. When we went to get a foot massage the ladies were so excited to see us in our shirts. One of their co-workers was out that day because she was one of the new home owners and was working on the house. Each house costs $700 to build. It’s amazing that such a small amount can make such a big difference in someone’s life.
