The sounds of hammering and sawing have faded
away, and Judy Harper sits in relative peace at the kitchen table in
her new house—a home built by love and surrounded by prayer.

Kingsport, Tenn. Pictured during the building process are, fromleft,
Nick, Jenny Trumbo (family co-sponsor), Judy and Kathy White. Trumbo
and White are also members of Holy Trinity. |
