Houses for Healing President Brian Massey to Speak in Cisco

Texas Family Defense Committee welcomes Brian Massey, founder of Abilene-based nonprofit Houses for Healing, to Cisco Thursday, September 28, at 6:30 p.m. He will speak in the Big Dam Room of the Myrtle Wilks Community Center, 1498 West I 20.

Houses for Healing is on a mission: to care for the sick by providing free temporary housing to those who are receiving medical treatment away from home. At a time marked by anxiety and financial challenge, patients and family may stay near treatment in a clean, comfortable tiny house — free of charge to those in need — thanks to this amazing ministry. Houses for Healing allows Christian congregations, across denominational and nondenominational lines, to come together and reach out to people who are in dire medical circumstances. 

The Good Samaritans of Abilene play a role as well, expressing the healing love and grace of Jesus Christ to those occupying the Houses for Healing.

This is the vision of Brian Massey and his lovely wife Karen. Brian was raised in Mulberry Canyon, southwest of Merkel, graduating from Trent High School in 1988. After finishing school at TSTC in Sweetwater, Brian moved away from the area in 1991. For 14 years Brian worked in the semiconductor industry where he performed research and development. After R&D was outsourced overseas, Brian came back to the Big Country where he worked as Corporate Training Manager for a large renewable energy company. After Brian’s mom passed from leukemia, a 501 (c) (3) his parents had started was transferred to Brian and his lovely wife Karen. After much prayer, Brian resigned from the Training Manager position for full time ministry. He began visiting the sick at Hendrick, Abilene Regional and various nursing homes across the city to walk in the commission of 

Christ to love our neighbor and care for the sick.
Houses for Healing brings an opportunity for unity in the Body of Christ through the collective utilization of tiny houses. Congregations across Abilene are given opportunity for local “mission field” ministry to our neighbors in difficult medical circumstances. Congregations outside of Abilene are invited to utilize the tiny house purposed to primarily serve their respective county by representing the resource to their communities. By meeting basic needs, these tiny houses serve as the venue for the Church at large to share Jesus with people who may be in their final months of life as well as providing the Samaritans of our area an opportunity to “love big” through other acts of service and kindness.
Hear Massey’s story Thursday, September 28. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
