IN THE NEWS: Effort to build two more Katy Build homes draws more churches

(KSLA-TV) Two years ago, Asbury United Methodist Church of Bossier City, Louisiana, and the Northwest Louisiana Fuller Center for Housing teamed up to honor the memory of Katy Watkins with the Katy Build, helping a formerly homeless couple get back on their feet. A second Katy Build house was constructed last year, further honoring the memory of Watkins, who died in a 2006 car crash with her friends Emily Perdue and Molly Reed. Now, First Baptist Church of Bossier City and Simple Church have joined Bossier City UMC in this year’s Katy Build effort that also will honor Emily and Molly.
