We've said that for a long time. It's one of the most important things we stress about the Community Powered Revitalization (CPR) program. The houses are important, and we love fixing them. But they aren't the goal. When we repair a house, we want something to change for the homeowner. We want to restore our Community, not just the buildings in it.

So it was pretty fantastic to hear someone else say that we don't restore houses. We restore people.

    Good Morning Scott!
    Your video is a wonderful overview of how 6stones is impacting lives! Listening to those who have received help is a clear indication of how God continues to bless your efforts. May he continue to provide wisdom, discernment, encouragement, protection, sensitivity to God’s Spirit and GREAT JOY as you/staff/volunteers touch lives for His kingdom.

    To God be the glory!

      Thanks for your support, David! We couldn’t do what we do without you and your prayers (and, of course, a God big enough and powerful enough to do these things and more).
