We enjoyed a visit this week from Habitat for Humanity International CEO Jonathan Reckford here in the Triangle.  Jonathan’s position enables him to visit Habitat for Humanity work throughout the world.  In one of our local meetings, Jonathan shared the story of Dorcas Phiri, a Habitat homeowner in Zambia.

Dorcas and her three siblings were left orphaned when their father died of HIV/AIDS.  Their housing, if you can even call it that, was severely substandard and insecure.  Take a few minutes to watch this video of Dorcas sharing the story of her family:

The story has a good ending.  Thank God for Habitat and our work in Zambia—able to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable and needy.
