WE NEED YOU TO HELP BUILD THE DISCIPLES FOR HABITAT 36TH HOUSE!

Disciples for Habitat is made up of our local Disciples of Christ Churches.  This is also the 36th house Disciples have helped sponsor and the 27th anniversary of when we began in 1992!  May is our fundraising month.  We hope you can help us with a donation.  Please make your check out to the Church with "Habitat" in the memo line or place cash in a pew envelope annotated "Habitat" on the outside.  Thank you for any help you can give.  We can only do this if we do it together!

There are common themes in hopes and dreams among the people that join Lexington Habitat for Humanity's homebuyer program.  Yet for each individual, family, or household that come together to purchase a new home, the opportunity to build a new home is unique and uniquely precious.  For Isaac Lameke & Estella Hamenyimana, that dream of a home to share with their family began years ago in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Faced with violence and displacement as a result of the war in their home country, they have traveled through Tanzania and Knoxville before coming to Lexington in 2010.  Here, they have made a home with their children, Happiness (3), Ezekiel (2), Moses (1), and a member of their extended family, Odifax (17).  It's clear that theirs will be an energetic home!

Isaac and Estella are optimistic about the life they are building in their new community, despite the disruption they have faced.  They look forward to pursuing more education when they are settled.  They look forward to sharing time with their immediate family and extended family who are also Lexington Habitat homeowners.

In May, when the first walls go up on their new home at 697 Georgetown St., Isaac and Estella will be able to share face to face with their sponsors what an affordable and secure home means.  For now, they say "We don't have enough words to describe how much we appreciate ... this program."

IF THIS LETTER WERE NOT SO TRUE, IT WOULD BE FUNNY

(It still is a little.)

Dear Pastor:1 You often stress attendance at worship as being very important for a Christian, but I think a person has a right to miss now and then.  I think every person ought to be excused for the following reasons and the number of times indicated:

Christmas (Sunday before or after)
New Year (Party lasted too long)
Easter (Get away for holidays)
July 4 (National holiday)
Labor Day (Need to get away)
Memorial Day (Visit hometown)
School Closing (Kids need break)
School Opens (One last fling)
Family Reunions (Mine & wife's)
Sleep late (Saturday night activities)
Deaths in Family
Anniversary (Second honeymoon)
Sickness (One per family member)
Business Trips (A must)
Vacation (Three weeks)
Bad Weather (Ice, snow, rain, clouds)
Ball games
Unexpected Company (Can't walk out)
Time changes (Spring ahead; fall back)
Special on TV (Super Bowl, etc.)

Pastor, that leaves only two Sundays per year.

So, you can count on us to be in church on the fourth Sunday in February and the third Sunday in August unless providentially hindered.
