Rebuilding the Wall

This Saturday, members of our house church had the opportunity to volunteer with Rebuilding the Wall, a really cool Indianapolis organization attempting to help families in some of the poorer areas of Indianapolis and repair the relationship between different classes in the city. They gut and repair rundown houses in the community and then sell them very inexpensively to local families, all of whom have never owned a house before. We had a great time learning about the organization and working on an old house downtown. I had fun pulling nails and lathe for about 3 hours, but it was cool to see how much could get done with the work of so many great volunteers. We hope to keep up a relationship with this group and volunteer somewhat regularly to work on the houses.
