How my relationship with Hosanna began

28 June

How my relationship with Hosanna began –

About 13 years ago we were new members to First Presbyterian Church of Bakerstown. As new members, my family was looking to get involved and give back. In the Sunday bulletin we read a short note about an upcoming Mission Trip with an organization called Hosanna Industries. The group was going to travel south in an effort to build two homes in one week! This was almost impossible to imagine!! My husband and I had some experience in home renovation and thought this might be a perfect fit! Knowing no one in the organization, along with our 7 year old daughter, Alexandra, we decided to make the trip. To say it was the trip of a lifetime would be an understatement. To say it was a life changing week would be an even bigger understatement.

So much happened that week! We worked harder than ever and enjoyed every minute. Getting to know the caring and loving staff of Hosanna Industries and other members of our new church home was truly amazing. Most of all, getting to spend time with the families who lost so much in the devastating floods was truly a gift. It was truly a miracle to see two homes rise up out of the earth in just one week! It was even more amazing to see how the love, tireless work, and dedication to help others changes lives! That mission trip was the beginning of our relationship with Hosanna Industries. We love serving this organization and feel extremely blessed that God guided to make that trip many years ago!

With love,
