365 Days of Prayer
We are preparing for our Faith Build in 2021 in many ways:  build plans, qualifying families, raising money, signing up volunteers but most importantly, we need to take time to PRAY!  Without the foundation of WHY we do what we do, our efforts won't be as meaningful and transformational. 

From December 1, 2020 - November 30, 2021, join us through prayer HERE.  We are asking 365 different people to sign up to intentionally pray for us for 365 days - that's the lead up to our Faith Build and through the build. 

And - you don't have to live in Rice County, Minnesota, to pray for us!  If you're a volunteer and you love our mission, ask your extended family and friends to lift us up in prayer!

You can also sign up to be on a crew by filling out THIS FORM.
Faith Builder Meeting
We want to bring together our Faith Builders (and wanna-be Faith Builders) together to talk about our Faith Build in 2021. 

Please join us for a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, December 8 at 6pm.  Please sign up HERE to attend that meeting so we know who will be joining us.  The Zoom link will be sent to you and will also be on our website the day of the event.

Build Progress
We are so grateful for our Go To Crew and their work on the last two houses in 2020!  Unfortunately, because of COVID we will no longer have any volunteers on site for the rest of this build season.  Our Larry's will get these houses done along with our fantastic sub-contractors!

Here's the progress at 313 23rd Street in Faribault - this is our second six bedroom home in 2020 for a family of 11 people!
Here's the progress at 309 23rd Street in Faribault with the Rindahl Family.  This is a three bedroom fully handicap accessible home.

Advent 2020 begins on Nov. 29 and ends on Dec. 24.

During this season of Advent, join us for weekly devotions as we enter into a time of expectation and anticipation in preparation for Christmas.

Hope in the promise

By Angela E. Thomas

The Lord has blessed you because you believed that he will keep his promise. 
Luke 1:45, CEV

It’s often difficult to remain hopeful in the face of unmet expectations and seemingly impossible tasks. However, our Christian faith gives us many exemplars of hope, including two couples whose stories are found at the beginning of Luke’s Gospel.  READ MORE...
