This week 26 members of the 55+ Ministry are working in association with Edisto Mission Team from Trinity Episcopal Church on Edisto Island. This mission team is helping two low-income families with much needed home repairs that will make their homes safe and functional.
One home is having almost half of its sub flooring replaced due to water damage. On the other home, the team is replacing and repairing much needed ceiling damage due to a leaking roof (recently replaced by the local team from Trinity).
The two families we are helping are the Howard family and the Hutchinson family. Pray that the work our team does will not only serve them in a physical way, but also will be a spiritual blessing, too.
A daughter of Ms. Howard is not saved, and Shandon team member Philip Brown has already had the opportunity to give her encouragement to know Jesus as her Savior. Pray that the gospel seeds that have been planted will bear fruit.
Our team assembled "Buckets of Blessings" that are filled with snacks and gospel tracks. Included also is a small booklet on "How to repair your home spiritually". We gave one to these families, and the team is distributing them to neighbors of these families. Pray that these buckets will indeed bless the recipients and that through them, our team and the gospel will make an impact on the whole community.
Finally, pray that God receives much glory through the efforts of this mission team.
