KEY CONTRIBUTOR

RETURN TO SELLERS, SC---COME AND JOIN US!!

Greetings VOLUNTEERS. I pray your summer is going well and the Lord is blessing you daily. Fall is around the corner and I’m sure plans are being made for last minute trips and family gatherings before school and other time requirements take control of your lives. As you may recall,  ABMen-USA Disaster Relief teams have been working in Sellers, SC.  Hurricane Matthew flooded this small, poor community in October 2016. There are still people living with friends or other family members because their own homes are not yet livable.

Jack Cobb, ABMen-USA Disaster Relief Coordinator and I will return to Sellers on Sunday, September 3, 2017 to work from Monday, September 4, 2017 to Saturday afternoon, September 9th. The work projects include rehabilitating floors, walls, electrical and other actions necessary for getting these deserving and grateful families back in their homes.

Yes, we are calling for a work party during the “Labor” Day week. What better way to spend “Labor” Day than to “Labor” in the Mission Field for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen!  I have become very close to many of the people of Sellers and find them to be God loving, precious friends, who truly appreciate the smallest sacrifice we might do for them. Many of them are elderly, some with medical issues and some are not employed. But they are very deserving of whatever we can do to help bring their lives back to normalcy.

Please prayerfully consider joining us in Sellers, SC during “Labor” Day week. Perhaps you can join us for only a day or two, but any help will be greatly appreciated. We enjoy great fellowship with co-laborers and the local people of the community. Sellers is located on US route 301 and is about an hour from Myrtle Beach, SC. We stay at the Community Center located at 2635 Main St, Sellers, SC 29592. We sleep on Red Cross cots and prepare some of our meals and others are provided. We have a rudimentary shower stall fabricated in the janitor’s closet. You will need a sleeping bag and pillow or sheets and blanket and personal items such as towels, wash cloth, soap, etc.

Please contact me by August 25, 2017 if you plan to join us in this mission experience. God will bless you!

PS:  GREEN LAKE WORK PARTY 2017 IS SEPTEMBER 17 TO 23, 2017!!!!
