Hurricane Matthew Rebuild–August 13-19, 2017

Mission Trip Adventures 08.19Our volunteers: 1-River Community Church, Fayetteville; 2-Park Place Baptist, Thomasville; 3-Union Baptist, Monroe; 4-Part of Region 3 Feeding; 5-Morris, Biltmore Baptist & Sothie, KC Missouri - Our electricial team; 6-David & Fred, Edenton & Bill, Sanford; 7-Life Community Church, Greensboro; 8-Euto Baptist, Marshville; 9-1st  United Methodist, Cary.Mission Trip Adventures 08.19It’s been a very productive week even with the heat and humidity.  Teams have been under the homes , in them and on the roof.  Some of the teams joined up to work on the same homes.  Teams have laid shingles, installed insulation, hung sheet rock, wired, plumbed stained , painted, installed cabinets and built counter tops, installed floor decking and much more.  It’s amazing how much work can be done with only a few volunteers.  My thought is THANK YOU LORD.  We are still in need of skilled electricians, plumbers and trim finishers so we can complete the 30 homes we are currently working on and start more.  Currently we have over 100 request that we have not begun to help yet. We all are very happy to have Anthony back.

Hurricane Matthew Lumberton Rebuild–July 30-August 5, 2017

8.5Volunteers: 1-Region 1 Feeding; 2-Village Baptist Church, Fayetteville; 3-The Summit Church, Kernersville; 4-Wanda's Friends, Kannapolis; 5-Life Community Church, Greensboro.Mission Trip Adventures 8.5The summer rush is over. This is the first time in a while that we had low numbers and only a half week of that.  However each group came with a heart to serve at whatever needed to be done even if it wasn’t their favorite task.  A team worked on the Moore home hauling in sand to fill low spots under the home and then installed all new floor joists.  Another team installed kitchen cabinets and did trim work in two homes while the rest of their group followed them with caulking and paint.  Another group installed sheet rock and subflooring. A group arrive that we forgot to put on forecast and they installed sheetrock, mudded it and painted the rest of the house.  So yes they were small in numbers but by having a servants heart and following HIS call a lot of work and even more witnessing was done.

The weather is changing and the number of volunteers on our forecast are low.  Please consider bringing a team to serve at one of the 5 eastern North Carolina rebuild sites.  And yes we hope it is Lumberton.  We have bunk beds and inside showers for all as well as a great kitchen and dining hall. Hope to see your group soon!
