Healing Hands Global

Mission Trip - www.healinghandsglobal.org/

It is the heart of Healing Hands Global to provide comprehensive medical, dental and spiritual care to people in rural, underserved areas of the Third World. Our present focus is Honduras, as we have established a rural hospital in the village of Rio Viejo, a small mountain community on the Northern coast. God has called us to serve the least of these and medicine is the tool He has given us to show the love of Christ to the people in a practical way. The summer season ended with a BANG! For months we have been praying for the completion of roofs on the ministry grounds. A new roof for the hospital, preferably one that didn't have 100+ leaks, a roof for the missionary house for our family, and a roof for the little building close to the hospital that we affectionately call "the snack shack". God answered above and beyond all we could ask or imagine. In a matter of three weeks time in August all THREE roofs were completely finished. It is nothing short of a miracle. ...

Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Mattress Direct Partners with Extreme Makeover

Extreme Makeover Home Edition- is a reality television series providing home renovations for deserving families. Each episode features a family that has faced some sort of recent or ongoing hardship-such as a natural disaster or a family member with a life-threatening illness. The show's producers coordinate with a local construction contractor, which then coordinates with various companies in the building trades for a makeover of the family's home. That includes interior, exterior and landscaping, which is performed in seven days while the family is on vacation (paid for by the show's producers), which is documented in the episode. If the house is beyond repair, they replace it entirely. The show's producers and crew film the makeover but do not pay for it. The materials and labor are donated. Many skilled and unskilled volunteers assist in the rapid construction of the house. Mattress Direct was able to provide several mattress sets for deserving families needing a helping hand.
