Linda recruited a VBS team from her home in the Great Smokey Mountains. They arrived on Saturday afternoon and got right to work getting things ready. On Sunday afternoon they had a VBS Kick Off with hotdogs for all that stopped by to register.
The theme was Fire Fighters which was very appropriate since it was being held here at the Salvo Fire Station. The key bible verse for the week was: Snatch them from the fire-Jude 23. The kids enjoyed Bible stories, music, crafts, games and snacks. One day two real firefighters came and talked to them. The kids were actually able to get in the fire trucks and pretend they were headed out to a fire.
Pastor Russ from Cape Hatteras Baptist came to present the plan of salvation on Commencement Day with his Big Cube. Two groups of kids sang songs they had learned this week and the older group did sign language. It was a great week of VBS that will long be remembered. Many thanks to the VBS Team for a job well done. Good news-They are planning to come back next year to do VBS again.
The Frady family came to Salvo to vacation and help with rebuild while Tiffany Frady helped with VBS. They scraped the old paint at Mildred’s and started priming for the next team to paint. On Wednesday afternoon the VBS team helped them. The house is ready to be painted.
This week we started a new remodel in Avon, “This Old House.” Tim, Billy T., Virgil &Fahey along with Billy L. finished tearing out the kitchen & living area and installed floor decking. Then they installed sheet rock. On Thursday the Hertford team came and helped finish hanging and mudding the sheet rock.
Harlan & Peggy helped finish up some wiring and plumbing at Elsie’s & Dean’s.
Dean’s yellow house is getting closer to being finished. Teams finished the ramp & steps. The scaffolding was loaded and the yard cleaned up some. The carpet was laid by a crew from Nags Head. Mike built the cabinets and Rob helped him install them. Plans are being made to have home dedication on Saturday morning.
Please be in prayer for a carpet & vinyl team that will volunteer to lay carpet in other houses. Please let me know if you know of someone.
