Four States Serving God Together

NJ Teams 6.8.121-East Fork Baptist, Kentwood, Louisiana;  2-Steven, Yorktown, VA;  3-Feeding Team Region 7, Denise, Barry and Louise;  4-The Self Family, Milledgeville, GACBombria-CinnamonNutmeg_2001Four teams with the same goal “SERVE GOD“ where needed.  Several families were so grateful this week for the work done on rebuilding their lives and homes.  Sheet rock was finished. Painting was done. Trim work installed. Tools gathered and a porch was even raised.  What simple task of work each of these were, BUT they were the task that GOD called this group to do in New Jersey this week so HIS GLORY could shine through the work and workers.Rename On Sunday Ann wanted to go touring so Louise and I joined her.  Our first stop was at Deep Cut Gardens where we saw some beautiful flowers.  Then we went on up to Mount  Mitchell Scenic Overlook which is said to be the highest point along the eastern coast.  There was a great view of New York from here however it was a little overcast which caused the view to be a little hard to see.  There is also a monument there in remembrance of 911.   

On Saturday I asked Ann to ride with me as I made my weekly check-up rounds and meet a few home owners to go over a few details.  We went by Joan’s so she could explain to Ann what colors she wanted her walls painted and I could measure for interior doors.  Then we went to Jayne’s to met her and her mother. Jayne, her daughter, a big dog and a cat have been living with her mother since the storm in a one bedroom town house and she is looking forward to being able to move back home.   Richard was also there waiting on this group that would help him rebuild his home and all he had to do was ask. 

GOD has been so good here in Jersey since Sandy made a visit that will never be forgotten by the residents.  We have seen and heard GOD at work in their lives.  As the work North Carolina Baptist and others continues I ask you to take a moment and pray that we listen to GOD’s calling and respond in the way HE is leading us.  Here in New Jersey our biggest need now is for N J licensed electricians to step up to the calling.  Please join us in prayer that the need will be met.

Are you following GOD’s call where ever it may take you ?
