Our dedicated team is working hard to repair the porch of one of the members of our local church. Being the church outside the church, we strive to extend our care and services to the community, helping where we can and supporting each other!

Praying with Partners

While serving at a local resource center, we had the opportunity to share testimonies and pray with some of the wonderful staff. Seeing the way God works in the lives of others is so encouraging!

Letting divine light shine through

by David Mora Giles | June 10, 2024 11:37 PM

Today, part of our team helped cleaning and reorganizing the New Beginnings Resource Center in Summersville, and we were impressed with the amazing results we can get when we work as part of the body of Christ!

With these actions we remember his word in Matthew 5:1

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”

Just as cleaning windows allows more light to shine through, having a pure heart allows us to see God more clearly and live in His light.

Teresse, the owner of this place is an incredible woman of God that has this amazing vision for her garden. Dedicated to the community, this incredible location provides, to anyone who wants to visit, a place to connect with the Creation and his Creator! 

We are more than happy and thankful to get to be part of it and we keep on getting astonished by the Lord's work.

Mission Hills Vs Weeds!

by David Mora Giles | June 14, 2024 12:13 AM

The Virginia Creeper can be super invasive! Over time, this plant can cause damage to the surfaces it climbs, including siding, brickwork, and gutters.

We’re happy for the opportunity to help in a house that needed some weeding here in Fayetteville, now it’s free of weeds!

Sugar Overload

by David Mora Giles | June 14, 2024 12:26 AM

On our last day of ministry, we got to go to The Frozen Barn… hands down the BEST ICE CREAM with a great crew that served us this delicious dessert.

And guess what?… the youth of Mission Hill, they’re not scared to try a challenge (two people eating 9 scoops of ice cream in like 15 min).
