Playing & Praying In the Sand

New Jersey Mission Trip Adventures 10.12.13Don Gallimore from Roxboro answered the call when he found out we need a sheetrock finisher.  Ginger and Paul from Blue Hill, Maine pulled electric wires along with Don for the electrician in the church we will be moving to.  They also went to Sea Bright to help Don hang and finish sheet rock.  Tim Etheridge came up to give Billy a hand this week.  Ann was the cook for the week.  Our friend Elaine came on Tuesday and cooked an Italian supper for us. It was delicious.New Jersey Mission Trip Adventures 10.12.13 pg 2Tim also helped The Summit Church group from Cullowee move sand out of a pool and sitting area.  Lets just say they hung out at the pool and on the beach for three days.  But seriously, it was hard back breaking work.  We’re glad a few of them were young but the older ones worked just as hard, including a eighty year old man and his wife.

We have started to rebuild The Grace Evangelical Church building in Seaside Heights and once it is complete we will move our operation there.  We feel this will make things a lot better for our volunteers and put our housing within minutes of the jobs we feel we will be working on next year.  At present time we only have a few teams signed up for November and only one for December (one for 2014).  Please consider New Jersey when you plan your next mission trip.
