You’re not just building a house. You’re building a family.
Our 2014 summer mission trips are closed. Please check back with us to apply for 2015!
Construction teams for Every Orphan’s Hope began in the fall of 2004 in Lusaka, Zambia, where teams constructed furniture for My Father’s Houses 1 and 2. Today, we have 11 homes that house eight children and a widowed woman whom they call “mama.” Construction teams have taken on various roles including painting, building exterior brick walls, laying sheet metal for the roofs, hanging doors, and constructing furniture. There is always a need in this ministry and no skill is required.
In 2013, instead of building a new home, we worked on repairs on our current homes. You can imagine the day-to-day wear and tear with nine people (8 children!) living in 880 square-feet of space. Six volunteers formed a construction team and worked alongside our older boys on home maintenance and repairs.
The team repaired or replaced:
√ 24 window screens
√ 16 bunk beds
√ 15 kitchen cabinets and drawers
√ 14 light switches and 4 sockets
√ 9 couches and 5 sofa chairs
√ 6 dinner tables and 22 chairs
√ 4 door locks and 10 door knobs
√ 4 clothes line poles
√ 2 toilets
Would you consider helping us keep our homes in good condition?
Your donation to My Father’s House Orphan Homes will allow us to purchase new furniture, new stoves, beds and mattresses, toilets, and other home improvement items when needed. Day after day, God restores our children’s lives through the love of Christ and through the love and sacrifice of people like you. Thank you for helping us provide a better life for our orphans in Zambia by giving them a safe and comfortable place to call home.
