Local Mission Project *UPDATE*
Roofing a Home and Serving Lunch to the Community
The local mission project was completed on June 20. Our one or two day project turned into 5 days! But we had lots of volunteers and many blessings! The main day Saturday was a great day of work, fellowship and food. We fed lots of folk (hard to keep a head count) – but God knows! We had about 17 guys on the roof!! We had to remove three layers of shingles and re-deck the whole roof. It took 72 sheets of sheathing to re-deck the roof! On Sunday we had “Roof” church at 10 a.m. followed by more roofing. Then Monday and Tuesday we had volunteers working to finish all the shingling. We want to extend a big thank you to everyone who gave time or money to help make this project possible. Matthew Collins ministry “Life Together Discipleship” helped with the project and most importantly they accepted two men into their program that they met during the project. We still are short on covering all expenses if anyone wants to give, donations are still being accepted. We will not use any funds that have been given to Two Roads for the work in Uganda.
