Pollocksville, NC – Weekly Report – Mar 9-13, 2020

April 2, 2020

J.Ray & Mim Heisey joined us for 2 weeks on their way home from an RV project. Ray is a crew leader and Mim is a fill in as needed.

Sat night 5 LT staff went to a Gospel night that had 8 Groups, What a cultural experience! While we were there, Cook Tim was at the airport picking up the last of our spring staff. Gideon is a young friendly fellow from Germany, who is with MDS for a year.

On Sunday evening Todd Bomberger brought a group of four employee from his store in Pa. Also, his daughter Gabby who works in the MDS office at Lititz was along for the week. Robert Beiswenger organized a group of 7 from Pine Grove Church also in PA. The two groups worked well together and had a fun week.

Ms JoAnne got a ramp build from off her porch, so she can get in and out in a safer way. Ms Mary got a new roof and new underpinning. Her floors got repaired and new laminate flooring was laid. They also installed a new shower and other bathroom repairs. Ms Tena had some new laminate flooring installed and work done in one of her bathrooms. The Mobley kitchen was finished, and other plumbing work done to bring that home to completion.

Martha enjoyed a roadtrip with Gabby to Bennentsville, SC for her to check on that project and express appreciation from the home MDS office. Martha reconnected with the PD, OM and the cooks who she worked with before. I got to know Gabby a lot better on the 7 hr trip. We shared more of our airport experiences after we went our separate ways trying to get to All Unit meeting in Ind.

Tuesday, we found out that the Methodist were stopping work and payments come Sat. Ray was busy trying to plan, so, he would have material to work with for the next week. Then on Thur. we found out that Friday was to be our last day for short term vols.

It was an emotional close to the week. We joined in singing GOD BE WITH YOU, Till ME MEET AGAIN. Each of us know we are in God’s hands and he never fails.

To God be the Glory for all that was done in Pollocksville to help restore Hope to our clients.

Gideon, David, Tim, J. Ray & Mim, Leon & Carol and Ray & Martha
