Here are a few snapshots of the first 2 days in Sylvania. Please continue to keep us in prayer!
From the Whistleblower, Don Wall:
This year’s trip is still scheduled to start in three weeks (June 1st) and I need your sign-up sheets back ASAP. I just talked to Bobby Abbott in Sylvania, AL, and they are hoping we come. Let’s not let them down.
From the devotional chairman, Jim Combs:
And I need volunteers to do devotions! Y’all know the routine: after meals from 5-7 minutes. Please email me ASAP and let me know if you’d be willing to do one (or more!). I’m sure y’all don’t want to hear me do all the devotionals. haha
The East Alabama Carpenters for Christ will be returning to Mountain View Baptist Church in Sylvania, AL, for this year’s mission trip. We’ll be framing the inside of the new Family Life Center building (using wood not steel). We’ll also be doing as much as we can during the 2 week stay, God willing (possibly wiring, plumbing, sheetrock, depending on what else we get done, manpower, and materials).
The mission will start on Monday, June 1 and run through Friday June 12. Please contact Don Wall or Emory Combs ASAP if you will be able to go this year. Building for His glory!
Passing along information we have received from Roger Blalock: “Just wanted to let you know that Mountain View Baptist Church has set our Dedication service for March 18th at 10:00am. Please let all the Carpenters know. We look forward to seeing all of y’all. God Bless and Thanks
Heard from Don Wall: he writes, “I was told that the church in Sylvania is having their first meeting in their new Building today. Thought you might want to know.”
Also, there will be a board meeting of the CFC trustees sometimes this month…time and place TBD.
The Carpenters for Christ of East Alabama will be heading back to Mountain View Baptist Church in Sylvania, AL. The mission will take place from May 30, 2011 thru June 8, 2011. We were there in 2004 and helped them build a new sanctuary. The tornado storms that tore through north Alabama a couple of weeks ago have blown the church building away. Not down…AWAY. The congregation is worshipping in the parking lot. Michael George got in touch with Emory Combs and told him the news. As of our meeting today in Valley, the Carpenters are heading back to Sylvania; if ever there was a need, this congregation desperately needs us. Mike Hudmon had been in touch with the pastor in Conyers, and after prayer, he gave his blessing for us to go; he told Mike that the greater need was in Sylvania! If you can go in any way, please contact Weymon Moore or Don Wall as soon as possible! God bless!
