Extreme Home Makeover and Patrick Henry Hughes

This week we have been talking a little bit about mercy ministry, benevolence, and the gospel. Incidentally, the ABC hit reality show, Extreme Home Makeover, was in Louisville this past week. They have rebuilt the homes of the Hughes family. One of their sons, Patrick, you may have seen in a halftime ESPN special last year. If you didn’t catch it, here it is:

The construction was completed this past Wednesday, and it is estimated that the new home is roughly $2 million. Elite Homes, the general contractor of the project, has developed a website where you can see photos, the crazy week-long construction schedule, and blog. As you could expect, there are additional costs that the family will have as a result, and people in the community are donating to help defray the expenses. From what I understand, this particular episode of Extreme Home Makeover is slated to air in February.

  1. Okay…THAT about made me cry. Are these believers? i certainly hope so. What a touching story. Thanks.

  2. Obviously, since I do not know them, I cannot answer that question. However, from other testimonies and video accounts, it appears that they are believers. Yes, it is a very touching story. His father works at the UPS Worldport where I also work third shift.

    What was the name of the beautiful song Patrick sang at the end of the show. I have never heard it and would love to hear is again. I have already found his web pages to obtain his music. Thank you and this family for sharing this story.

      The song title is “BELIEVE” by Brooks and Dunn.
      Great song, done very well by Patrick.
      You have already got this answer probably but I thought I would write it anyway.

    This is one of the most inspiring makeovers I have ever watched. To think this young man has the ability to never let any thing or any one keep him from his dream should be a lesson to all the so called normal people of the world to change and be thankful for all they have. I would like to know if Patrick has made a recording of his music as I would love to purchase one as soon as I can and I would love to be able to help in any way with a donation to his favorite charity or club. I am not rich but would like to help a little if I can

    Thanks Deb

  11. I just watched this episode, and Patricks dad calls Patrick his hero. Mr Hughes, you and your wife are my heroes! You , sir, gave him the gift of music. You, as parents, gave him a life and values that he will be able use through his life. Not many parents of children without disabilities do as fine3 a job as you have raising this fine young man. Kudos to you all. You are an inspiration to many!
