Six years later, still rebuilding

Long Island Lutherans build Habitat homes in Alabama

New York Lutherans take a break in February from framing out a six-bedroom Habitat for Humanity home for a family of refugees in Bayou La Batre, Ala.

Victoria Elfstrom-Bender<BR><BR>These volunteers are among the 51 who came to help from congregations in Long Island: Trinity Evangelical, Rocky Point; St. John, Bellmore; St. Peter, Huntington Station; and Ascension, Franklin Square.

They ranged in age from 14 to 79. For six years, members of these congregations have traveled to areas damaged by Hurricane Katrina to help rebuild and repair homes.
