And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.
— Isaiah 61:4
The effort to rebuild North Highland is a huge undertaking. Practically, it entails the purchasing of homes (Housing Initiative), construction projects, clean-up projects and the upkeep of those efforts made. Rebuilding North Highland offers residents the opportunity to take pride in their neighborhood and to get involved with the effort to maintain it.
For example, every house that was worked on by volunteers during Summer Missions Project 2009 has been maintained by its residents. In addition to that, a local plumber who dwells in one of the homes that had a porch repaired offered his skills to the Summer Missions Project 2010 and continues to offer his services to our church! Since then many more projects have been done throughout the community in an effort to rebuild North Highland from the inside-out. People helping others and in-turn those who are helped lending a hand themselves–this is rebuilding North Highland.
