Mark Your Calendar for our California Unit Annual Meeting
Saturday, October 9
10am to 2pm
Upland Brethren in Christ Church
845 W. Arrow Hwy. Upland, CA 91786
Building is Underway in Paradise
Thank you for your prayers for Paradise. Work is now underway at several project sites, including this jobsite where volunteers prepare to pour the foundation and slab for our very first project.
The home, located in a remote area outside of the Town of Paradise, will belong to Cheryle. For more than two years, Cheryle has been “making do” in the travel trailer seen in the background. Click here to read about how Cheryle’s story impacted MDS volunteer Robert Unruh. To volunteer contact Josh at email@example.com or call 800-241-8111.
Learn more of John O’Neal and Teresa Wallace’s story and meet Gayle Zepeda, another Ukiah fire survivor, in these MDS videos below.
