1-Oak City Baptist Church brought a large team wanting to do what ever GOD led them to do. Tripp was the youngest (5) and GOD led him to love each of us and he also did a great devotion. 2-Don & Bill were two individuals who came, met and became a good team and I assume friends forever. 3-The Pactolus group also came with a heart to serve at whatever God needed them to do. 4-Steve Hudyma joined up with the Center Grove team from Ahoskie which heard the call for help and went. 5-And for all who say they are too old to do mission work well you need to try to hang with the Matthews group. They ask what to do and then it gets done. So a big THANKS to GOD and his children “young, senior and in between.“
Pastor Chris from Oak City did some electrical work at Tony’s while the girls did lots of clean up. The Matthews group worked on the Fulchur house in Avon. They did electric, plumbing & laid flooring.
Mike Daughtery (aka Chief Mike) built cabinets for the Williams house in Avon. Since Roy from Oak City knew Mike he went to help along with Rob. That is the largest butterfly bush in Kathy’s back yard I’ve ever seen.
Most of the Oak City team spent the week at the now “Little Yellow House” (previously red). They cleaned up, moved sand, built and planted a vegetable garden, built an a/c pad.
They moved everything in the attic including the floor to install new insulation. They installed floor insulation under the house and then put up the underpinning. Chris gave lessons on pulling wire. Don & Bill finished the rails & pickets on the rear deck. Then they did the main part of the front deck. They also helped get the siding started. Of course under the house was the favorite “taking a break and cooling off spot” for everyone.
Richie (local) continued to finish the sheet rock. He not only finished it he also did the knock down and primed the ceilings. The Pactolus group helped get a lot of the siding done and some of the ladies have started painting the exterior.
Lots of people this week so the dining area was full during meal times and devotions. Top right is Tripp with his mom at his side for support while he told us all about Jonah and the whale and how we should all turn from our sins. After a long hard days work the Oak City guys said they were going to go catch supper. Well they didn’t catch much of anything so I’m glad that Ann and Linda went ahead and prepared a great meal as they have six days a week since Feb. 1st.
There are two guarantees if you come to the OBX to serve GOD: 1- you will get a blessing out of it while you enjoy yourself 2 – Forget your diet cause the way Ann & Linda cook, let’s just say its your own fault if you get up from the table hungry. I assure you your belly will get full because they prepare plenty of great tasting food and deserts.
