(USA)–Next, a United States based organization that wants to see everyone around the world in a simple, decent, affordable, home is celebrating 25-years of service. Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing organization. Habitat’s Michael Crook. “We’re in 80 nations now and more than 2,000 communities. We’re everywhere from Australia to Zambia and everywhere in between. In the first 25 years volunteers built 100,000 houses. We’re on track to build the next 100,000 houses within five years.” Cook says providing a home isn’t their only desire. They want to show participants the Gospel. “The Gospel flavors everything that we do. Every work site will involve devotional prayer in the morning. At every dedication in addition to the keys to the house the family receives they key to the kingdom and that is a Bible.”
