Habitat for Humanity of Goldsboro-Wayne will welcome guests from Guatemala on Thursday.

For every house built in Goldsboro-Wayne County, Habitat for Humanity of Goldsboro-Wayne contributes a tithe to Habitat International to support builds in other countries.

Habitat of Goldsboro-Wayne has supported Guatemala over the last year and they would like to invite the public to hear what they were able to do with this support.

The public is invited to join the board of directors and staff at First Baptist Church of Goldsboro on Thursday at 4 p.m. for a short slide presentation and an opportunity to meet the leaders who are building in Guatemala.

"This is so exciting," said Richard Koenig, coordinator of International Donor Relations Habitat Guatemala. He and the executive director of Habitat Guatemala, Luis Samayoa, will be on hand to answer questions and describe the home-building efforts there.

Habitat for Humanity Goldsboro-Wayne was organized in November of 2001 and has since partnered with 25 qualified families and the community to build decent, affordable houses.
