Many months ago a good friend from Virginia dispatched a crew to help me demolish my old existing house at no cost to me in order to start this whole rebuilding process. Christ In Action exists to bring hope to families where disaster has struck. Demolition Day was a really dark day. However, seeing progress has really rekindled our hope.
In my last post I urged readers to bring hope to Hurricane Harvey victims this Spring by reaching out to families in need and asking how you could help. Fast forward a little bit and another friend, Matt Risinger, from Austin, Texas (almost 200 miles to the west) reached out to me. Matt is a man of God, a custom home builder, fellow building science geek, and host of The Build Show on You Tube. He wanted to show viewers how I am rebuilding in a flood prone area while at the same time raising awareness about the need for help in areas affected by Harvey.
He visited the area and saw first hand the silence of the devastation. The link below is to the video he produced for his You Tube show. Matt will bring you an update on my house, teach you some good home building techniques, talk a little building science, and he will give you a glimpse of the needs that still need to be addressed along the Gulf Coast.
Thank you Matt for your good works. If after reading this or after viewing the video you would like to assist please feel free to reach out. The need is there. You too can bring hope to those in need.
