Dedication of Ms. Betsy’s House

Mission Trip Adventures 3.26.2016 p1     1 & 2-The highlight of the week was lunch at Ms. Betsy’s house on Thursday and the dedication of her home on Friday.  It was a very emotional day for many as Billy presented her a Bible signed by many of the volunteers; 3-Biltmore Baptist was here for their monthly visit and where able to put the finishing touches on Betsy’s house; 4-Our feeding team was from Region 5; 5-Three young ladies came from Redeemer Hoboken Presbyterian, Hoboken, NJ; 6-Harold & Sandy came to help with Admin and David was here to help Billy; 7-On Wednesday Judy Stone brought a group from Long Branch Baptist, Lumberton.Mission Trip Adventures 3.26-001     When rebuilding homes and churches it is cheaper to make a door a special size than to order one.  Tom and Cal have been doing lots of sheet rock work for us.  The Redeemer ladies learned how to install light fixtures, trim paint, cut and install molding.  One of them is actually studying HVAC drafting in school so She joined Gary and Cal for some hands on experience.  The guys laid lots of flooring this week.  Dian and Shelia did sanding, painting and cleaning.   The Lumberton group worked on finishing the shingles at Mary Wilson’s home.

We were able to complete 2 rebuilds this past week but had an additional 5 to come in.  At present time we have 40 owner request for help ranging from steps, insulating, sheet rock, painting to roofing. Let me know when you want to plan your trip.
