Recently signing the acceptant letter to start a Habitat for Humanity project that will be their new home, Brandi and Joe Dore (second and third from left) are all smiles at the Newburgh United Methodist Church in Indiana Conference’s Southwest District. Ground breaking is set for this coming Sunday afternoon.

The idea for the “Home for the Holidays” project was born from a concert presented at the church by the Vienna Boys Choir last fall, according to Pastor Mark Dicken. The choir performance came by a joyful fluke of scheduling, Dicken said then the church chose to build on that opportunity.

“We felt like it was the leading of the Holy Spirit to encourage us to step out to do something beyond our reach,” he said.
