Pray First

As we were getting ready to head out to our work sites for the day, we had a moment to just praise God for what He’s done and what He will do! It’s so important to refocus our hearts as we head out!

Messy Mangroves

After church this morning we headed out to our first worksite of the week! We sifted through thick Mangrove roots and pulled out all the debris we could find! Including but not limited to a case of water and a massive propane tank! It was hard work but we felt super accomplished afterwards!

After a long day we took the opportunity to enjoy some time with the church youth group! We had a water balloon launching competition and it was a BLAST! We attempted to get them as far as possible, through a hoop, and or landed on a target! This was a great way to wind down and fellowship together!

To Serve Not To Be Served

by Hannah Jobe | March 5, 2023 11:15 PM

After an amazing meal with our fellow team and the local youth group, Pastor Ken shared a powerful word with us to start our week!

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” 

‭‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭45‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Ken encouraged us to put on the servants cloth and to let Christ overflow from us instead of pouring from an empty cup! He reminded us to be expectant of the Lord to move and aware of the tricks of the enemy! 

“Don’t let the enemy steal the joy of servant hood.” - Pastor Ken

Favorite What?

by Hannah Jobe | March 5, 2023 11:17 PM

What better way to end the first day than with some fun team time and “get to know you” questions! Turns out  you can learn some really fun things about people just by knowing their favorite movie and flavor of ice cream!

Too Good To Not Believe

by Hannah Jobe | March 8, 2023 9:57 AM

Everyone, meet Rick and Margie! This couple reached out to us yesterday for some help cleaning out debris from underneath their house. Rick had just prayed the other day and asked for the Lord to send them some help and we got to answer that prayer! We had and incredible time working for this sweet family! Throughout the whole process we got to see evidence of the Gospel! What the enemy meant for evil the Lord turned for good! When God comes in, He takes out the old and rebuilds something new and something even stronger! Our God is too good to not believe!

Squeaky Clean

They even set up a P.O. box so that when people are trying to get in their feet they have an address to write down! This is truly an amazing outreach and we are so excited to partner with them!
