The Final House Reveal

Many of you have read about us meeting Ms Clemmie on the street in East Nashville right after the flood. She poured her heart out about her blind mother and her father. I went and met with them. I saw the flood damage but I also saw much more need than that. The house was in horrible shape. So seeing it first hand mixed with hearing Clemmie's heart cry for her mother put us all in action. I have personally never taken on a project restore this big. But something said "Go".......so I did :) Yes, it was a TON of work but God's army came through for this family. They now live in a beautiful home to match their beautiful spirits. Mrs Mary, Clemmie's mother, poured herself into her children, neighbors and the community and always took them into her home and fed them and gave them a warm place to sleep regardless of the mess that their life was in. She has experienced loss by watching many family members, including her own daughter who passed away, fall victim to Aids, drugs and alcohol.........but she loved them all the same. The final loss she experienced was her eyesight three years ago. This is an amazing family that I am so privileged to have met. They have opened my eyes to the needs in the inner city and we continue to support Clemmie in her life mission of pulling gang members off the streets in inner city Nashville. She has such a powerful testimony herself and now she takes that and uses it to help young girls who fall victim to gangs.

SO HERE IT IS.......I AM SO PROUD OF THIS PROJECT :)
Just look at what a bunch of Ordinary Heroes can accomplish when they put together their time, labor, money, donations and love. Thank you a million times over to those of you who jumped on board with this. I NEVER could have done it without you. I jumped into this without really having a clue what would be involved :) But through all of you, God showed up to pull this family from the heaviness in which they lived. May you all be doubly blessed for all the love you have shown them.

  1. Kelly,
    I have been waiting to see this video anticipating the beauty of their renovated home.:-) I had chill bumps through the entire video. I remember meeting Oscar and seeing the house about 3/4 of the way through. My kids still talk about going to their house. (So glad the table fit in the kitchen). God is so good. I'm so very happy for them and their daughter. It is beautiful. Everything that was donated is beautiful. I'm so thankful that everyone gave their best. It's awesome!! Much Love!
