Teams also worked on two tear outs.  Tony Treat is home on from serving on IMB and came down to help out spray some homes for mold.  Work starts early and Billy was able to catch God’s beautiful sunrise one day.

In need of many volunteers over the next couple of years to help rebuild Lumberton and the surrounding area.  At present time we are in big need of people with electrical and plumbing knowledge as well as roofers to install shingle and metal roofs.

Welcome David Fuss to the Lumberton team.  Right now he is working on finishing up recovery jobs which keep coming in and will also be helping Billy with the rebuild operation.
