Today we worked with the Fuller Center for Housing, a Christian housing ministry headquartered in Americus. We worked on a home that is located in a village half a mile from Koinonia’s main campus called Forest Park. Here one of the first partnership housing homes, made of chicken wire and concrete, was being restored. We screened in a porch, dug trenches to place pipes, broke up the house’s floor with a jackhammer to remove rusted pipes, and created a fire to burn scrap wood and keep the group warm! Many members of our group tried the jackhammer, and we have pictures to prove it! At the end of the work day, we all gathered to pray for the house and all of the people that will be touched by it--what a great way to end a hard day of work! This evening we went to Family Supper at Lee Street United Methodist Church, followed by a night of discussion from the book, 12 Marks of the New Monasticism.
