Sunday Service at Enoch Missionary Baptist

by Drema Jefferson | June 12, 2022 3:00 PM

We also attended the church service of one of our main partners for the week. Pastor Jackson preached from the book of Nahum. He reminded us that the Lord is good despite what we may be going through. His message was so encouraging!

Time with Pastor Jackson

by Drema Jefferson | June 12, 2022 3:06 PM

After a delicious cookout done so graciously by the church, we heard from Pastor Jackson and how he became a pastor. He also talked to us about the history of his church. We loved getting to hear about his journey and how the Lord has been so faithful.

Not Letting the Rain Stop Us From Prayer!

by Drema Jefferson | June 12, 2022 3:09 PM

This afternoon the weather didn't look so great for a prayer walk, but we decided that we wouldn't let the rain stop us! A sister in Christ from the church suggested we pray at the church instead, so we prayed over the church, the community, and that lives would be changed. We each took a pew and prayed that God would also send the harvest.

Lending A Hand

Today our team split up to assist in as many areas as possible. Eight of us drove to Facts of Life in Tabor City, NC. We helped Pastor Daisy organize the food pantry for tomorrow's distribution!

Back To First Fruits!

by Garrison Hobbs | June 14, 2022 9:04 PM

After lunch, we reconnected at First Fruits ministries! We assisted in organizing the food pantry. With many hands the work was light; we were able to stay cool and hydrated.

Kingdom Work

by Garrison Hobbs | June 14, 2022 9:23 PM

While one part of the team went to help Pastor Daisy, the other half joined Embrace Church. We walked the streets of Wilmington offering prayers and packets of information about the gospel. The power of prayer was surely evident today.

Food Distribution With Facts of Life

by Drema Jefferson | June 15, 2022 4:23 PM

This morning we had the opportunity to help Pastor Daisy at the food distribution center in Tabor City. We were able to bless the community big time, as well as Pastor Daisy since she was not able to have many volunteers on-hand this week.
