I have often volunteered for habitat for humanity and found it to be a great use of ones time by putting action toward ones prayer, in Jesus name. As believers in Jesus we must pray, fast, and read scriptures, but we must also be doers of the word of God.
This is one out of many volunteer opportunities one could take, but I think it is especially important for those praying for the Lord to make a home available for them, to help others build theirs.
The concept that grew into Habitat for Humanity International was born at Koinonia Farm, a small, interracial, Christian community outside of Americus, Georgia. Koinonia Farm was founded in 1942 by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan.
The Fullers first visited Koinonia in 1965. They had recently left a successful business and an affluent lifestyle in Montgomery, Alabama to begin a new life of Christian service.
At Koinonia, Jordan and Fuller developed the concept of “partnership housing.” The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build simple, decent houses.
