Extreme Home Makeover and Patrick Henry Hughes

November 16, 2007

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.
