What is Happing NOW



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!

Green Lake Greetings:

Green Lake Greetings:
I know the word has gone out, but I wanted to make sure folks were aware that we are doing a spring AB Men’s work week, April 6-12. Work days for the week will be Tuesday, April 7 – Saturday, April 11. Travel days on April 6 and 12th. As before, your room and meals are provided during this time
We have a long list pf projects including; drywall work ( some hanging only and some finishing), bunk bed building, carpentry work, bathroom and room renovations in Oberlin Lodge, interior painting of volunteer housing, grounds work and playground building, and for those that just can’t call it a week without starting up their chainsaw, there is always chainsaw work to be done. I’m sure there will be other projects added to this list.
If you are able and can be with us for the full week or just a few days, please call our switchboard (920) 294-3323 and tell them you want to sign up for the April 6-12 AB Men’s work week. If you can’t be with us, we hope you’ll be praying for those that do come, their safe travels, the fellowship they will have while at Green Lake and the contributions they will make to Green Lake with the gift of their time and skills.
Reminder, the fall dates are Sept 21-25 and Sept 28 – Oct 2. We hope to see you then. If you have any questions, please feel free to write back to this email or give me a call. My office line is: 920-294-7384.
