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 had twelve congregations involved in our meeting on Tuesday night!  This was a great way to kick off our Faith Build for 2021!

If you missed the meeting but want to know more about our Faith Build, you can see the power point that we went through below.  The black page in the power point is when I showed a video from Thrivent which you can see here.

If you want your congregation to be involved in our Faith Build 2021, connect with Daynal, 507-323-5167 or

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.

Week 2

Bearers of hope

By Belinda Flórez Guzmán

Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God.

 Psalm 146:5, NIV

When my supervisor told me my contract wasn’t being renewed, my alarms went off, and I knew I would need to make some immediate changes to what had been a “safe zone.” Nonetheless, at that instant, I also remembered that my hope has always been placed in Jesus. He provides for all my needs: economic, spiritual, emotional and professional. The organizations I’ve been blessed to work for have been the means used by God to provide for me and my family. As I write this devotion, I can bear witness that God is opening doors of blessing for a new time in my life. Once again, I can count on my hope in Him. Hallelujah!
