Homes for Hope – IBS 2016 In Review

20160119_194637

 

Our second day at IBS, like-minded guys from 6 different states sat down and all had dinner with us at Bahama Breeze. The topics they were most interested in were culture, connecting with other like-minded builders, and sales & marketing strategies. Be sure to wear those shirts guys!

The next generation of pioneering home builders were brought together at the IBSLIVE under 40 panel discussion & mixer. Among the panelists were two friends of Homes for Hope, Brad McCall of McCall Homes and Monica Wheaton of Builder Partnerships. We were so blessed when they both shared their personal testimonies with Homes for Hope! We are incredibly thankful to them for their service, partnership, and for speaking out about building locally to fight poverty globally.

Jack Nulty was invited to speak as one of the facilitators at the IBS Session “Groupthink: Labor Shortage Solutions,” where he shared about culture and community building with trades. One attendant, Scott Miller of The Home Innovators, reached out to Jack later, saying, “I came to this show with the intention of learning all I could and I think the most important piece of information I came away with is what you shared with me about culture. The conversation about business numbers and rewards was good but because of you I now understand the phrase “culture eats strategy for breakfast” and I want you to know that you made a difference. I thank you and my team thanks you!”

Lets Make 2016 A Year Of “Loving People Well”

Woodmont Cabinetry Cropped Photo

 

Inspiration For Loving People Well in 2016

 

Here at Homes for Hope, we aspire to love people well, and we’ve been inspired by Woodmont Cabinetry, who recently retooled their production line to produce gift baskets for their employees as well as those in need this Christmas season in Dallas Texas. It’s wonderful to see and learn from others how to love people well and the guys at Woodmont are excellent at loving God and their neighbors. They are a blessing to Homes for Hope and all of the builders around the country they support.

 

Like us, we hope Woodmont’s example stirrs up a curiosity on how we can better love our people well, and we invite you to join us in this New Year’s Resolution.

THE VERY FIRST CHRISTMAS

H4H Christmas

Matthew 1:18-25

(18) This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.

(19) Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

(20) But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.

(21) She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

(22) All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:

(23) “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.”

(24) When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.

(25) But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Merry Christmas and Thank You for Building Locally To Fight Poverty Globally.

Getting into the Living Water Business

Getting into the Living Water Business Banner-01

 

I recently visited the Dominican Republic with a group of builders from around the country to see the work of Esperanza International, HOPE International’s partner in the Dominican Republic. Our first day, we visited an Esperanza client named Henry in Santo Domingo. When we arrived at Henry’s business, I was surprised to learn that he was also a pastor, and his business was also a church.

 

After welcoming us into the sanctuary, Henry shared his personal testimony – Like the woman at the well in scripture, he was living an unfulfilled life, so he prayed to a God that he didn’t know to ask for help. Little did he know, God would answer his prayer, and within 24 hours he would lose everything he had. Three month later, Henry would give his life to Christ.

 

Henry shares his testimony with our group in the church sanctuary housed within his water business.

 

While facing the challenge of starting over, God revealed to Henry that the love of money was the root of all evil. During this time, he was hoping to start a new business, and he asked God for wisdom to build his business for His Kingdom and not himself. God would answer his prayer by giving him a vision for a water purification company that also acted as a church. Also, it was at this time that the Esperanza Loan officer Maximo was touched by God to enter Henry’s business and to seek him out, leading to Henry his first loan.

 

Today, Henry now runs and owns a water company that houses a church where he serves as the pastor. His business now employs 16 people from his community and provides affordable access to clean drinking water, selling his water at half of the price of his big brand competitors. With the sales from his business, he is able to provide for his family’s needs, enabling the church’s tithes to be used for other purposes. So he is essentially, he is a pastor who works for free.

 

Looking forward, Henry has ambitious plans to grow his business to 50 delivery trucks and open 5 more churches that house water purification businesses.

As our day came to a close, we asked Henry how we could pray for his business and his church. He responded with, “Ask God to send me five men of vision to open five water station churches in the surrounding communities.” Before we parted ways, Lance Wright of CastleRock Communities led the group in prayer for his specific request.

 

We also invite you (the reader) to join us in praying for Henry’s request.
