1-Wise Baptist Church-Wise, VA; 2-Zion Hill Baptist Church-Rennert, NC; 3-Region 7 Feeding Team; 4-Ann did some early morning running this week with Rebecca and they were blessed with a beautiful sunrise; 5-Our good friend Paul being baptized; 6-We enjoyed The Wave Saturday night with praise and worship; 7-The candidates for baptism professing Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Wise Baptist was a large group so they split up into several groups. The ladies did Vacation Bible School at Union Church of Lavalette in the mornings and then worked in yards and houses in the afternoons. Along with the guys they did home tear outs, insulated homes, replaced shingles on a home, cleaned yards and did their part on fire watch (which some really enjoy). On Sunday they presented Barbara (Pastor Todd’s secretary) with funding to help purchase the blocks for the foundation of her new home and a very special block. Hopefully we will be starting on her house very soon and we will be needing lots of help. The Zion Hill group also did several jobs. They hung and started finishing sheet rock, built a/c platforms, laid flooring, painted and built window frames and got framed (LOL). The boys decided they wanted to help the Wise group on two days and did a little home tear out. Hope they forget how to do the tear out when they get home.
It was a good week in New Jersey. We saw volunteers hearts turn closer to GOD as well as residents here drawing closer. Rebuilding homes is great but the closer walk with GOD is what it is all about. Sure would like to see others receive this blessing of GOD at work in their lives. We are in process of starting five new jobs and could use lots more help over the coming months. Winter is on it’s way and we would like to see these people back into their homes before summer arrives next year. FYI – It’s been 21 months since many people of New Jersey have been able to go home and sleep there.
If you want to plan a future trip we have lots of openings beginning in August. If you want to do a trip now we are full for July But NCBM and the people of the Outer Banks of NC could use your help with tear outs following Authur. There are 20 homes to be torn out.
