Members of Habitat for Humanity gathered at the Habitat headquarters in downtown Brewton on Thursday afternoon, July 17, to send members Terrence Breckenridge and Rusty Miller off on a mission.
Breckenridge and Miller left on Friday, July 18, to join members of the Global Village in Asuncion, Paraguay to build houses. Global Village is an extension of Habitat for Humanity to go to other countries to build houses for those who need them.
Those who gathered for their send-off on Thursday presented the two men with some gag gifts to give them a few laughs while they are gone. The trip is to last 17 days and in that time, they and those who are with them, will build as much as they can.
The two will leave Paraguay on Sunday, Aug. 3, for their return to Brewton.
