"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."
Habitat for Humanity (HFH) works in partnership with God and people everywhere to develop communities with God's people in need by building and renovating houses worldwide. It is also an easy and fun way to introduce mission work to people who have not previously been engaged as missionaries.
Teams of volunteers join with HFH professionals to help construct and renovate homes for families in need. Habitat teach the volunteers the skills needed for each task and, together with the families, the whole team on-site work to provide the families with the home that they need.
Habitat makes a huge impact on both the families and the volunteers and the results of the mission are clearly visible to all involved. Secondly, it helps our teams see and feel the real results of God's work. This mission is a concrete way to see real impact in today's world. There are two ways in which Habitat evangelizes: firstly, all new homeowners are provided with a Bible and secondly, Habitat members are able to bear witness at a one-on-one level with the people who they interact with on the site and in the community.
There is currently one trip organized from ACP every year. A team can stay for 10 days or two weeks and the destinations change every year, according to the needs of the organization. It is important to remember that whilst the teams work hard, it is not ALL work and no play! There are days dedicated to sightseeing and exploring the local community, which is a great opportunity for the volunteers to explore other countries, lifestyles, and the various ways God works through people.
How can I Volunteer?
This year a group of All ages will travel to Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek during 29th/30th of July until the 8th of August. For further information on the Country, the project and fundraiser please download the docs below and read through them.
The teams are generously supported through donations of the congregation, but each team member has to help raise the funds needed through a sponsoring webpage and promote it through friends and familys. Every year in the Spring time there is a Concert organized at ACP in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Paris. The Concert will be on 20 May at 20h00. This generates a large part of the funds needed for our trips. Volunteers can assist with everything from selling tickets, setting up, ushering, preparing and cooking the buffet, serving drinks, and cleaning up. There are also opportunities throughout the year, including Christmas and Easter, to support Habitat by buying cookies and other delicious baked goods.
