Henry is a self-employed home improvement contractor from Raleigh, North Carolina where he is the owner and operator of his business. He and his wife attend Hope Community Church and they serve in the family ministry and the church’s Homefront outreach ministry. He is known as Mr Fix It and has built luxurious million dollar homes and God has used his hands and the skills that have been given to him on the mission field over in India. When there came a time when he and his wife were having serious marital problems and God guided him towards the church without him knowing. He accepted an invitation from a client who became a very good friend of his and, in the first service he came to, the pastor was preaching about his issues and it hit him like a break that this is how God works. The Holy Spirit worked for both him and his wife and they saw one another in the same church, hearing the same service and their hearts were both touched. After the service, their anger lifted and clarity came over him as he realized that he already had what he needed, that God is with us always, 24/7, every day of the year.
He built their home without any intention of it being their forever dream home and there was a part of him that wondered if it was a waste, a home with no purpose, but everything changed after his first mission trip in India. While he got a culture shock when he came home, he asked God why He blessed them with so much when other people have so little and that was when it hit him that it’s the people that have so much art to reach out and help those with so little. That was when they opened their home to all those in need.
They opened their home to people that were in financial difficulties, letting them stay with them for over a year so they can get back on their feet. Now, they were able to afford their own home. Henry and his wife also opened their home to church gatherings, wedding receptions, birthdays and other different occasions. He believes these people enjoy their home more than they do and they thank God because their home is not a waste. He blessed them with the stewardship of taking care of this home and, in turn, he and his wife blessed other people with the blessing they received from God.
