Lucas and Alecia Sutton with children Kaydence, Leah, Lucas Jr. and Oliver step out of their new living room onto their new front porch Sunday afternoon for a family photo. Inside the home, rooms were filled will friends, family, and people there to wish the Suttons well and congratulate them on their new home.

The home was built through the Habitat for Humanity of Logan County, and with tremendous support from the Emden community where the home is located.

The Suttons lost their home last year on December 14th to a fire. People in the Emden community raised money for the building site. The couple qualified for HFH and did all their volunteer service including laboring on their own home, and Sunday they reaped the rewards of all that work.

LDN will have additional coverage from the house blessing in Emden in the Tuesday edition.
