5.19The number of volunteers as well as the length of stay has been low lately. However, they have come with a heart ready to serve. This week teams got a house primed and painted which next week a team will start the window trim and flooring.  Another home was prepped and most of the primer done so the group starting there Monday can paint, trim windows and start flooring. The Jones house now has flooring laid, doors installed along with most of the molding installed. Now waiting on a paint crew. Electrical has been completed at the V. Powell home. The S. King home needs about a days work and then final inspection and she can return home. Got some odd and ins to finish at the C. King, McComb and Bracy homes so they can also get a final inspection.

June and July is pretty full. We are looking help to assist David with overseeing the work being done as well as somebody to run supplies. If you can help for a week PLEASE call Billy or Ann with what dates you are available.

If you have a small group of talented volunteers we do have a few places we could fit your group in during the next 60 days.

Teams started another home by doing rough in plumbing and electric, then another team moved right in installing insulation and subfloor.  Several volunteers painted , hung sheet rock, installed plumbing and electrical fixtures, laid shingles and installed floor covering. No volunteers next week but by mid May we should complete four more homes.  Volunteers seem to be on a roll now getting work done at a steady pace and still finding time to share the gospel.  Had two salvations this past week.

Mission Trip Adventures 4.21-001Another great week of team work. Teams worked on many jobs from rough ins to final trimmings. Flooring was installed in three homes & trim work in four homes,. Three homes had sheet rock sanded, floors and walls cleaned and then primed.  Two more homes had rough in plumbing and electric finished and inspected. Sheet rock hanging was started in one home as well as some framing repairs made. On Saturday a team took out the subfloor in a home so new subfloor and rough-in plumbing and electric can be done next week.

We are still receiving request for help. Some of them had been waiting on mitigation funding but now realize that may be several more years. Therefore they are asking for help now so they can return home. So give Ann a call to set up a week for your group.

Sheet rock hanging completed on four homes, four interiors painted and flooring started.  Rough in plumbing and electric done on two homes. Shingles laid on two homes. Vinyl siding and metal trim installed as well as subfloor laid in two homes. I know I have missed something however it was a great week and GOD’s hands were seen many times.

One team worked at completing a home they helped start last year. While they were working Leonard a neighbor who had helped them with tear out came by. They talked and asked if he had been using the study bible they gave him last year. He smiled and responded YES but my daughter asked if she could read it so he gave it to her. So the team gave him another one.

Subfloor and walls were installed in 3 homes. Insulation and sheetrock installed in 2 homes, trim work in several homes as well as lots of electrical and plumbing.  Waiting on more HVAC duct to be finished. Best way to put it is “lots got done this week and home owners are happy.”

One team stayed all week and several others came for a few days or just one day. Painting was completed until kitchen cabinets are installed at the J McMillian home. The Thomas home is now complete thanks to the international group who spent many hours painting, cleaning, hooking up plumbing and the final trim work. The Freeman home will get HVAC next week along with some final TLC and it will be complete. In the C King home the flooring is almost finished, kitchen cabinets and vanities are in waiting on tops, most doors and trim work complete as well as electrical.  The S. King home got flooring and trim work started as well as bath hooked up after some minor changes.  Also the homes on Hay Street moved a lot closer to being ready to start towards finishing.  Part of a team painted the dock entrance to the rebuild facility.

Still lots of work to be done in Lumberton. Our needs at this time are for small volunteer teams with building skills. We have several homes that teams have replaced the roof and now the inside repairs need to be done while the home owners are still living there. We also have homes that need plumbing rough in and hook up done.

Give us a call to schedule your trip.
