Praise and Prayer

Praise: Habitat for Humanity is hammering the final nails in its 100,00th home. The Plains, Ga.-based ecumenical Christian organization has grown to more than 2,000 affiliates in 68 countries, and completes a home every 30 minutes, according to the Associated Press . "The growth of this work is escalating tremendously," said Millard Fuller, a former millionaire who founded the group 24 years ago. "I think what we're seeing is the emergence of a new social and religious movement, which is ending poverty housing and homelessness." Habitat hopes to raise $5 billion to build 100,000 more homes in five years, he said.
