We’ve chosen another food drive for our next missions project. On October 12, Helping Harvest is having a Celebration of Community and Hope.
During the week of June 4–10, 2017, Lincoln Park UMC will be taking a trip to Tarboro, North Carolina, to help families who are still recovering from hurricanes and flooding over the past several years. Chances are we will be helping to demolish and/or restore homes. Tasks could include: demolition, cleaning, laying tile and/or flooring, studding walls and installing insulation, dry walling, spackling, painting, etc.
Brian Hibshman, a member of Mohnton UMC, general contractor, and veteran of numerous work trips, has graciously agreed to lead our expedition.
I can personally attest to the blessing which comes through these kinds of mission trips to help others. While brief and sometimes challenging, they can be life transforming.
The cost of this one week trip will be between $250–$350. This includes everything: travel, lodging, food, and supplies for our project. I’m hoping to have around twelve volunteers. If you are interested, please contact me.
