NCBM set up in Lumberton at Hyde Park Baptist and joined many other groups feeding the survivors and doing recovery work. On January 1 the Rebuild operation of NCBM officially started and has been going strong thanks to many devoted volunteers. On Thursday April 27 NCBM received permission to move into the almost completed NCBM Lumberton Rebuild Center. Again thanks to all the many volunteers who have made this move possible.  A special thanks to Bill Martin who long with David and Billy has lead the renovation process.  Over the next few weeks we will continue to renovate the site and clean up as we prepare for an Open House on May 17, 2017 from 11:00 till 1:00.  Hope you will join us as we give thanks to GOD for what he has supplied us with to help rebuild the Lumberton area.

Volunteers this week also worked on several homes bringing these families closer o being able to return home.  Teams did plumbing, electrical, replaced windows, hung and finished sheet rock, laid flooring, installed doors, did trim work, installed shingles and painted. Yes a little bit of everything needs to be done as we rebuild Lumberton and share the gospel.  Each week a team is able to sit and visit with a home owner listening to their story and sharing GOD’s love.

Please ask GOD where he wants you to serve him and follow His answer.  Sometimes he speaks directly to us and sometimes he sends a message to us through others.  Either way if you follow His call you can have the most fun ever and be filled with joy as you help others.  I am human and want you to choose to come to Lumberton to stay for a while and help rebuild here but again “Follow His call.“

We now offer bunk beds for those lodging with us. There is also 3 full hook up sites and 3 sites with water and electric only (we do have a dump site for when you leave).  There is also a large area for games and tent camping. In a few weeks we hope to construct a prayer garden. 

Come see us soon.
