The home was turned over to the Morrisey's on August 26.  Thanks to everyone who contributed so much time and materials to make this dream come true!

A Thank You  letter from the Morriseys

Click on Pictures > After above to see the finished home.  Be sure to visit Generous Hearts to see all the contractors, suppliers and individuals who gave so much.  Check out the Videos!

On Thursday, May5th at 10:00 am the  Demolition happened, officially starting the  Christian Home Make Over House at 7404 5th St SW in Calgary.

The Morrisey family was there to witness their house coming down, and watch as God began a miracle in their lives.

See the front-page article and picture in the July City Light News.

The Christian Contractor would like to thank all of our supporters: this miracle started with 3 phone calls, 1 to a willing window supplier, the 2nd to a lumber and truss company, and the 3rd to a dear friend with a furniture store. Their willingness to jump in as soon as they heard about the cause spurred on a faith that never stopped believing that this was really possible. To each and every one of you that have also had the spirit move in you, and were all so quick to reach out, I want to thank you.

There is  no way that TCC is capable of giving a house away, but with all of you trades, prayer teams, suppliers, and donors, this team effort is helping to accomplish a miracle. Each and every one of you are very important and I pray blessing on your lives and businesses.

The Shine crew 88.9 FM, CBC news, and Sun news Media, were all there to help celebrate and let the world know about what you are doing, my hat is off to you.

 

The Makeover house update as of Friday June 17    5 weeks from day of knock down , front page news.

A big Thank You came from the Morrisey family as they stood on the street weeping and jumping up and down with excitement.

On Friday they came to see the house for the last time before they have it presented to them as a completed new home In August.

They were amazed at how quickly and efficiently all of you have put this together, and are still amazed and feel extremely blessed by your more than generous hearts.

The Christian Contractors want to thank you for making extraordinary efforts to help us expedite this project, you are all amazing.  Be blessed.

In Him
