Sorry for the delay in posting, but the mission was pretty busy up until the last day. Here are some pics from that last day. Keep BCBC in prayer as the next crew is onsite working. Praise God for what He got done, using us!
After prayer and discussion, we will be going to Red Level, AL (near Andalusia) to help Buck Creek Baptist Church with the inside of their new building. They will already have a 2-story metal frame, up and roofed by the time we get there. We will have a TON of inside framing to do in this building, so please make your plans to attend. We’ll need every man we can get!
The church is landlocked in their current location, and this building is on 7 acres that a church member donated to the church. Their pastor is Bro. Tyler Ingram. We’ll be staying at the nearby high school.
Advance team will leave and arrive on Monday, June 4. Full crew needs to arrive on Wednesday, June 6. Mission will end on Saturday June 16.
Also, an important note: For those of you who will be needing to apply for a scholarship, you MUST apply for it with the CFC board BEFORE the mission trip. Please don’t wait until you arrive at the mission; there are only a limited number of scholarships. We would never let cost get in the way of anyone wanting to go and serve on this mission, but we need to know before the trip. Please contact any member of the CFC board to apply. Thanks!
Recent email from our whistleblower, Don Wall:
Our mission to Kentucky has been canceled. The church in Kentucky is going to wait. Therefore we will be looking for a new mission for next year. Please pray that God’s mission for us will make itself known in time. If any of you hear of a possible trip please let me know.
Message from Don Wall:
The build at Shiloh went well. However we did not get the building quite dried in which was our goal. Emory would like to do some work on Tuesday and Wednesday to get the building ready for the decking on the front side of the building. If you can help with this please show up at 7:00 central time.
On Thursday there will be men needed to finish the roof. It is a metal roof so if you come, bring gloves.
Please let me or Emory know if you can help. Thanks
The project at Shiloh is scheduled to start on October 20 and 21. Emory Combs wants to know how many will be there on Friday and Saturday since the Church is preparing lunch. If you know anyone that does not have E-MAIL and would like to help with this project please let them know and if they can help let me or Emory know.
The Slab has been poured and they are in the process of getting material for the build.
Remember we need a head count for lunch.
Shiloh is located at the intersection of CR53 and CR 121 in Western Chambers County, AL
Carpenters, God used us in a mighty way this year, despite the devil’s intentions to sidetrack us. The building looks great (pictures to be on the website later). Hope everyone got home safely and had a chance to rest.
