Habitat for Humanity Global Village

St. Paul's member Bob Gessler recently returned from a Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to Tajikistan in Central Asia .

During the two week stay in the country Bob worked on building several houses at two sites. The houses are constructed of mud bricks on concrete foundations with sheet metal roofs attached to timber rafters. The Habitat team of 12 people from across the country primarily helped dig the foundations, mix concrete, pass buckets of concrete, carry rocks and assemble rebar for the concrete foundations. While there the team enjoyed the hospitality of the people. Some highlights include attending the New Year's celebration on March 21 and being invited into people's homes for meals. Bob will be presenting photos from the trip during a potluck dinner at St. Paul's starting at 7 pm on May 2. Hope you can join us.
