Nine local churches to participate in special offering Sept 19
By DAVID SULLENS Editor and Publisher
Nine New Braunfels Churches will participate in a special offering Sept. 19 to help provide housing through the Habitat for Humanity program.
Habitat for Humanity is, according to Cari Gray, a local spokesman, “a non-profit, Christian housing ministry which believes that through faith and action, Christians can eliminate poverty housing and provide decent shelter for all.
“Habitat,” Gray continued, "provides a hand up, not a hand out, to housing recipients. Families receiving homes must work at least 500 hours on building, and also pay a low cost, no interest
mortgage equalling the actual cost of the home. Habitat homes are much less expensive than other types of homes because they are built largely with donated funds and materials, and with volunteer labor.”
The local woman said Habitat for Humanity was established in 1976 and has affiliates worldwide.
Often, she said, corporate sponsors underwrite the cost of an entire home, but the Comal County affiliate hopes to build its first home entirely with funding from the Christian community.
The Sept. 19 fund raising effort, Gray said, was initiated and organized by Dr. Peter Olsen of First Protestant Church.
Other churches participating include: Cross
Lutheran Church, Faith United Church of Christ, First United Methodist Church, New Braunfels Presbyterian Church, Peace Lutheran Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Sts. Peter and Paul Church, and Tree of Life Fellowship.
Associated with the planned special offering on Sunday is the “Peace on the Plaza" event that will see local young people spending Saturday night taking part in an event planned to acquaint them with “what it is really like to be homeless.” A part of the “Peace on the Plaza” experience will be the creation of a “cardboard village,” with participants using cardboard boxes for shelter.
On Sunday morning, participants are to go from the “Peace on the Plaza” event directly to their churches, where they will sit as a group.
In Comal County, Gray said, Habitat for Humanity shares office space with the S O S. Food Pantry.
She said Habitat for Humanity meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Dittlinger Memorial Library.
For more information about the special offering Sunday, Sept. 19, Gray said interested persons should call the Rev. Peter Olsen at First Protestant Church, 625-6951.
For additional information about the local Habitat for Humanity Chapter, those interested should call 629-3663 between 9 a m. and noon, Monday through Friday.

The trial date for capital murder suspect Jack Warren Davis has been set for Oct. ll, according to officials at the Comal County District Clerk’s
A hearing on the issues of a writ of habeas corpus filed by Davis’attorney is still set for Oct. 4 in the 22nd District Court of Judge Charles Ramsay. The hearing will determine whether or not Davis should stand trial for his alleged involvement in tlx: murder of local school teacher Kathie Balonis.
Tile first part of the hearing was held in early August . The judge delayed making the decision in order to allow Davis* attorney Stanley Schnei
der of Houston to introduce more evidence concerning the testimony of Fred Zain, a former employee of the Bexar County Crime Lab.
During the hearing, Schneider questioned the validity of Zain’s reports. The court is awaiting evidence from Virginia which discusses cases Zain was involved in while working there
The cases in West Virginia occurred between 1983 and 1989 In past interviews, Schneider said attorneys discovered discrepancies in Zain’s testimony in reports. A judge in West Virginia has requested an inquiry into the matter.
Davis was tried three years ago for the murder of Balonis and found guilty. His conviction was overturned by the Court of Appeals.For nows, advertising,or subscription information, call 625-9144A A A
