Getting Closer to a Move

MissonTripAdventures_New Jersey 11_16_2013We had a great group of volunteers this week.  1-Cool Spring Baptist, Sanford; 2-Oak Grove Baptist, Boone; 3-Region 5 Feeding Team; 4-Biltmore Baptist, Asheville; 5-James with the Cool Spring group showing us some clogging; 6-James and two of the ladies from Biltmore showing some of the handmade wooden toys he made and donated.  You may notice that James is in the feeding team picture too.  I think he liked having his picture taken with the ladies.Mission Trip Adventures New Jersey 11_16_2013 pg2So much work done this past week.  Teams hung sheet rock and installed parts of the ceiling at our soon to be new location in Seaside Heights.  Rudy & Robin brought up some kitchen equipment and several ladies cleaned it before installation.  The Oak Grove group and Paul finished removing the sand from Joanie’s pool and porch area.  The teams worked on 10 different homes and the church.  GREAT WEEK  Thank you LORD

Although the teams were able to complete several work request we received just as many new ones.  The work requests are starting to come in on a regular basis again.  However our list of volunteers signed up to come to New Jersey to help is very small.  We need help NOW and next year.  As for now – this week with the few volunteers we have we are hoping to get the new church building to a point so we can get a C.O. by Friday.  Then when we return after Thanksgiving (December 1) we will need volunteers to help us move everything from Grace Tabernacle to Grace Evangelical in Seaside Heights and setup our operation there.  Once we move most of our jobs will be with in 5 minutes of the church which will make things better for all.
