Habitat for Humanity Kuching

On 17th Sept 2014, six of our Life Group members participated in Habitat for humanity Borneo Blitz build at Jalan Stephen Yong road in Kuching.  This is a major build for Habitat as 14 houses will be built in one location.  These houses are concrete duplex houses of high quality.

We did various jobs like brick laying, mixing cement, carry bricks, some plastering, removable of dirt etc.  Although we were involved for only one day, it was a full day's work.  Practically we work through out the day.

Praise God that the house we were helping to build belongs to our Iban Church member Billy!  What a nice surprise.  If he did not mentioned that he worship at FBC we won't know because we do not know all the Iban members of our church.  Billy and his wife were there to help too.  This is part of the agreement for being awarded a Habitat house.

This experience reminded me of my participation in Habitat Mongolia in 2005.  A team of us from our church joined Habitat Mongolia to go to a city called Darhan about 400 km from UlanBator, the capital of Mongolia.  We also had a blessed time there building for the Mongolian families.  They were very appreciative of our help.  We ourselves were also very much blessed to be able to do a little to help the less fortunate.
