In the wake of the tragedy in Haiti, many people are reminded just how important it is to help one another. One West Virginia family's home is getting a makeover with the help of a local church and the Christian ministry Habitat for Humanity International.
Members of Sandy Creek Baptist Church are loving their neighbors as themselves by building them a new home.
"We think it is important to help those in our community that need help," said Chris Sizemore, the church's pastor.
The Woodson family of five have a child with special needs. Living in their small, leaky trailer hasn't been easy.
"It is hard for him to get around certain areas of the house," said Natalie Woodson. "He can't wheel his chair in between the furniture or the hallways and stuff like that. his wheelchair won't even fit through the bathroom door."
The church says it's what their faith is all about.
"There is always a mission in our own backyard especially in Appalachia that need help," Sizemore explained.
