YOU CAN SUPPORT HABITAT BY VOLUNTEERING AT THE
2019 Brainerd Jaycees
Snow is on the ground, the days are getting shorter, and ice is quickly forming on the lakes! It must be time for the 29th Annual Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza, held Saturday, January 26, 2019 on Gull Lake’s Hole-in-the-Day Bay.
The Extravaganza is truly a community project, and that is because of awesome people like you who continue to volunteer and help make it so successful. We hope you will be able to join us again this year.
 
All proceeds raised from the contest are donated back to area charitable organizations. Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity is providing volunteers to help work the event.  In years past we have done many things, such as bus greeters, securtiy, info booth.  
 
If interested in helping out please contact Karen Skarolid at 218-454-7020 or email here.
 
 
                                                             
Global Village Trip to Guatemala,
July 6 – 14, 2019
Did you know that average temp in Guatemala in July is 76 degrees - not bad!
 
The Global Village program provides opportunities for people of different cultures to live and work together in a spirit of partnership. Team members experience firsthand the burden of substandard housing. They learn what Habitat for Humanity International is doing to address the issue and how all people can help. They meet and get to know Habitat partners from all walks of life. As our understanding of culture expands, we begin to realize that cultural traits are not right or wrong, but are a framework through which we understand the world around us. We are called to minister to others within the context of their individual cultures and likewise, through this unique GV experience, our hosts are called to minister to us. It is our hope that team members will look to the GV work trip as an opportunity to learn and contribute while expanding their knowledge of unfamiliar cultures and developing their own spiritual identity.
Itinerary and information about this Global Village trip can be found here.
 
Thrivent members get a discounted rate for a GV trip. Call your Thrivent representative to learn more.
