Habitat for Humanity House Blessing

Habitat for Humanity has once again helped a Molokai family to achieve its dreams. On Friday, August 17, Brent and Amber Nakihei, along with there three daughters, Crystal, 6, Christina, 7, and Patience 11, moved into their new home on Likelike Ave. Family and friends from the family’s church, along with members of the Habitat crew joined the Nakihei’s for the blessing of the house and a potluck dinner.

“These two guys came to Molokai on their vacation and spent their time helping us out. They even gave us four fans and a washer and dryer,” she said.

The Nakihei’s first applied for the Habitat housing loan in 2005. After they were selected they helped to build three other Habitat homes on the island before they started work on their own house. The family is now looking forward to turning their house into a home that will be “devoted to God for generations to come.”
