LAHFH Weekly Volunteer Update Mar 6th, 2020

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. Go through your closet and give items that you have not needed or worn for a year to a local clothing ministry.
  2. Spend some time with a child. Share some of your fun childhood memories and listen to what the young boy or girl has to say.
  3. Pray about ways you can influence your Habitat organization to be truly serious about living out Jesus’ values.
  4. Pay for the meal or purchases of a stranger. Try to do it in total secrecy.
  5. Learn about the situation of a refugee family and invite them to your home for a meal.

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.
