Description:

We believe God has called Christians to help provide decent affordable housing to families in the Yakima Valley. Because of that understanding, we are once again, for the ninth year, committing ourselves to raise the funds and participate in building a Habitat for Humanity home for the Israel and Maria Reyes family of Yakima. Their new three bedroom home will be located at 906 South 7th Street. The Reyeses currently live in a one bedroom apartment with their three children: Ever 13, Ulises 9, and Briseida 1. In order to take on a project of this magnitude, financial and direct hands-on help will be needed. The project is scheduled to begin in late September or early October and end in mid-to-late November. Here at First Pres, we have committed ourselves to raise as much of the $45,000 as is possible. Over the past nine years we have raised 50% of the money relatively quickly, whereas the rest of the money has come in only after several appeals. We are committing this year to raise a minimum of 50% of the finances, trusting God that our FPC family will give generously beyond that. To date we have raised nearly $12,000. We are also committing to provide most of the labor. Nehemiah was able to build the walls of Jerusalem in 52 days. He was able to do so not because he was a great man, skilled in every art, but because he united God's people under a purpose that was bigger than them. This year's project will be accomplished as we, united, give both financially and physically. It will be a life-changing experience for all involved, including the family that will own this beautiful home. We are a congregation that is truly blessed and we have repeatedly shown our willingness to share our blessings in ways that benefit others. Our desire as a church family is to "reach those unconnected to Jesus and together, worshipping God and growing into Christ-like maturity, impacting our community and the world." Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity and with the Reyes family is helping us fulfill our desire. Our financial and direct participation will have a significant impact on this family for generations, as well as helping to change their neighborhood and our entire Yakima community.
