ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Asheville, North Carolina church group is back in Albany for a third straight year to help build Habitat for Humanity homes.

18-members of the Asheville First Baptist Church Young Adult class spent the last three days in Albany on a mission trip.

They're working on two Habitat homes just across the street from three other houses they helped build in their previous mission trips.

Assistant Pastor Eddie Morgan said "It feels good to know that you've got somebody in an affordable home. They have got a roof over their head, and they've got some security. And you know in these days and times when the economy is so strapped, I'm sure more and more people are going to need these kinds of things."

The Asheville Church group has also made mission trips to help Hurricane victims on the Gulf Coast.
