Each year, we host a Faith Build around World Habitat Day in October. Our Faith Build partners with local churches to volunteer on the construction site for a day for a sponsored family. For our 2015 Faith Build we got the opportunity to work with 12 representatives from different churches from the community. The 2015 Faith Build was sponsored for Ms. Tevera Reynaud.
2015 Faith Build Partner Family
Ms. Reynaud and her family went through many tragedies before coming to Habitat. Her family lost a husband and a loving father. Through this tragedy Ms. Reynaud has relied on her faith to get through it. Ms. Reynaud say's, "With the grace of God, we will make it." She has two sons, Nathaniel Sapp and Mckinglynn Reynaud. Nathaniel is her eldest who is currently in 10th grade. She says, "He is a bright and handsome man, who is very respectable and well-mannered, which is why I love him so much." Mckinglynn is currently heading to the second grade. She say's, "My second son is a hand full, but I love him so much he keeps me going all day and night. He is very smart and a great reader." Ms. Reynaud is currently a CNA at Christus St. Patrick Hospital. She says, "These two boys are my world now. I am just a mom trying to keep my family together. My boys and I only rely on ourselves and God. I work a lot to provide the best I can for my kids. I try to be the best mom I can be, even though my life is hard I would not change it for anything in the world." We wish the best of luck to Ms. Reynaud in her future.
