What is Happing NOW

KEY CONTRIBUTOR

Hello, again, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. You may recall an earlier request for volunteers in Sellers, SC, a small poor community that suffered greatly from hurricane Matthew in October, 2016. We have been housed at the Library / Community Center, sleeping on cots and using a primitive shower. We have been making home repairs including electrical and installing sheetrock and flooring. We still have floors to repair, minor roof repair and electrical to do. More needs to be done.  ABMen-USA are planning to return to Sellers on Monday, May 15,  to Saturday, May 20, 2017. Yes, this is the day after Easter Sunday. Please consider how many days you can participate. The people of Sellers are very friendly, engaging and appreciative of any help they receive and they are very deserving. Please contact me and let me know what days you plan to be there so we can prepare for you. You will need a sleeping bag, (or sheets and blanket) pillow, toiletries, towel and wash cloth, etc. You may bring any personal tools if you want. Please contact me at the e-mail address or phone number below. Thanks, again for all y’all do for our Ministry and for the Lord in being the hands and feet of Christ.

PLEASE HELP WITH THE “GIFFORD PROJECT”

PLEASE HELP WITH THE “GIFFORD PROJECT”

“BRINGING GOOD NEWS TO GIFFORD”

Brothers in Christ, you may recall that Gifford, IL suffered great damage from tornadoes recently. Many homes were destroyed and damaged. There are still many residents who cannot return to their homes because of damage or total destruction. The ABMen Ministry of the Great Rivers Region has partnered with Habitat For Humanity and American Baptist Home Mission Societies to perform a “building blitz” project for many of the people displaced by the recent tornadoes. This project will take place June 1-14, 2014. I urge all of you who are able to participate in this worthwhile project. All talents are needed, whether it be clearing, brush, cleaning a home, pounding nails, sawing lumber, electrical and plumbing, or running errands. There is something you can do to help. You can also help with any form of financial donations.

The following documents explain very clearly how you may join this effort and what the needs are for the project and what you are required to do in order to participate. This includes information about what to bring and where you will have lodging and receive meals. Please read these documents carefully, pray about how you can help and act quickly, because the start date is not far off.

I want to thank you all for the great work you have done in the past and I know that many of you will get involved in this exciting adventure as well. Thanks, again for all you do and I look forward to seeing you in Gifford, IL in June 2014.
