Home Sweet Home

Lesley Doerksen

A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.

Welcome to home sweet home for 28 Liberians!  Equip2serve was so blessed to be a part of this housing project.  Pictured above is the before and after photo. Can you see why we were so excited?  What a transformation! Five units complete with a separate bathroom & shower facility & front porch. Not to mention the new shiny roof, that will not leak water when it downpours!

We're excited to walk you through with photos of the project from start to finish. Thank you to all our Equip2serve members, Thorsten Weinss, and Liberian workers for all that YOU did to see this project to completion. Thanks to Pastor Daniel who took many of these pictures.

Front porches will make a nice place for the families to sit outside out of the sun.

The group who will be moving into the new unit pictured here with Pastor Daniel and his wife Alice.  We are happy to have been able to bless these people and look forward to seeing how God will use this in their lives for his glory.

Thanks to all who gave financially. Thanks to all of you who prayed.

We give GOD ALL THE GLORY!
