Our last batch of service projects for the year... and as usual we had an interesting variety of projects on our hands. God provided us with challenging dilemmas this go around, but by faith and hard work, we managed to knock out all 3 projects!
The first was a return trip to Carrols home in Blairsville, where a small crew was tasked with figuring out how to fix her leaking gutters and rotting fascia board. Thankfully, with a few trips to Home Depot and some patience, they were able to finish up our work at Carrols, blessing her with a functional home.
Our second project was also in Blairsville for a lady named Dorris. Unfortunately, her and her husband had run into medical problems, as her husband is now in a nursing home, and she was forced to move to McCaysville. Me and a couple other guys grabbed a U-Haul, loaded up the remainder of her things, and transported them to her new home. She was brought to tears when we told her the work we did was free. She blessed us over and over as we told her it was our pleasure to help her out. It was wonderful seeing God praised on this project!
Our final project was to the service of Fannin County Crisis Pregnancy Center. We sent a crew there to tear out and replace the carpeting in two rooms and two closets that desperately needed it. The finished product was professional and timely. The center was blown away by our volunteers' efforts and desires to work with us again in the future.
We continue to press on in our community as God's servants. We thank God for these opportunities to show his goodness in the lives of those around us.
