Biltmore Baptist Makes 8th NJ Rebuild Trip

Mission Trip Adventures 11.8     1-Biltmore Baptist, Asheville, NC; 2-Homeowner David Gross and boys; 3-Lion’s Club delivering another check; 4-Region 2 Feeding Team-Carl, Dorothy, Linda & Kay; 5-Josh Andrews (our son).   Mission Trip Adventures 11.81     This week the the volunteers worked on three homes.  Some of the ladies sanded sheet rock at Gary’s and then painted the room.  Several spent two days at Michelle’s installing trim, flooring and painting.  The rest of the group (later joined by the others) worked on The Gross home.  They built front and back entry landings and steps, installed insulation and fire caulk, cleaned up and started hanging sheet rock. Our son Josh has joined us for a few weeks.  He fit right in with the Biltmore group who enjoys doing a little bit of everything.

We wrote up requests for help rebuilding two more homes this week. At present that gives us five homes to rebuild and 1 total new build (we start digging Barbara Hastings foundation on Monday).  With this many work requests we need an average of 12 to 15 skilled rebuild volunteers for the next 20 to 25 weeks.  At present we have four teams between now and the end of the year, then teams for only six weeks in 2015.   This means we are way short on volunteers.  Please pray and consider coming to Seaside Heights to help us rebuild homes for people who’s homes were damaged by Super Storm Sandy.  It does get cold here but nothing matches the warmth of returning home which is what we are helping with along with sharing with the people why we are here, “ TO SHARE GOD’s LOVE.”
