LAHFH Weekly Volunteer Update Feb 28th, 2020

Forty positive actions for Lent 
(post 5 per week)
Rather than emphasizing what you will “give up” for Lent, focus on positive actions you can take to demonstrate the extraordinary love of Jesus. Consider carrying out some of these ideas.
  1. In true alone time, write at least one paragraph expressing the role God plays in your service with Habitat. Offer this as a silent prayer of thanks and ongoing commitment to God.
  2. In conversations with others, identify examples of racism in your community. In the context of Jesus’ values, develop a plan of action to fight racism and begin to act upon it.
  3. Make a list of people who have had a positive influence in your life. Each day of Lent, thank God in prayer for one person. Contact as many of these people as possible and thank them.
  4. Pray for the perpetrator of a crime. If possible, contact the person to let him or her know of your prayers and offer other appropriate support.
  5. Contact a local Habitat family and make plans to have a meal together.

Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity is so excited to announce our Thrivent Faith build. Together, Thrivent and Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity help families in need of a safe and decent place to call home. Locally, Habitat and Thrivent will partner on the construction of a home for the Katie & Dale Johnson family in Baxter alongside multiple local churches. We are excited about the churches that have already signed on to partner with us, but need more to have a successful build. This is a great opportunity to do mission work right in your back yard. For more information on this Thrivent Faith build or how to get involved, contact Ruth Ann at 218-454-7019.
