Emotional visit to a beneficiary family

Our visit to the Hongu family

Today, as we left our work site after lunch due to wet weather conditions, we had the overwhelming opportunity to visit one of habitat for humanity's beneficiary families in their current home. It was shocking to see such a small room playing host to a kitchen, sleeping area and living space for a family of three. Eddie and Elena will be working along side us and other habitat for humanity teams in the building process of their new home. The experience proved to be highly emotional for everyone; Eddie, Elena, their four year old son Darius and ourselves alike. I think it is fair to say we all took something completely priceless from this truly unforgettable experience.

They are the Hongu family.
