Tackling the Elephant Update

I wrote several posts here during the Tackling the Elephant series at VCC. (If you'd like to see the TTE website, click on the green and black elephant logo over there -->)

Yesterday was a great day. We partnered with Habitat for Humanity to begin construction on a house in Lincoln Heights financed by the "Elephant" money that came into VCC last November. As a church we committed to give any money above and beyond our operating budget to this project. At the end of the series we received exactly the amount needed to build one house.

I was able to meet our partner family, the Williams, and let them know that we are honored to partner with them to see the kingdom come in their neighborhood. Lots of tears and cheers - a good morning.
