I know what you are thinking...if I knew I was going to have this view I would have come and helped build this Shed of Hope. Sign-up and come help at MNA Disaster Response. You might just get a view like this one. During this same day, a member of Christ the King Church in Wilmington set up a Shed of Hope with just his daughter and 2 of her girl friends. They did a great job following the plans!

Trained churches are making an impact together! After pre-building
Sheds of Hope for the disaster, a team from Covenant Presbyterian Church in Auburn brought 2 sheds and set them up at Panama City Korean Church. Plains Presbyterian Church in Zachary, Louisiana brought 4 sheds. Covenant set up 2 of them at First Presbyterian Church which was badly damaged during the hurricane.
From Holland, with Love
Well, I think the record for the longest-traveled sheds to a hurricane site goes to Covenant Presbyterian Church in Holland, Michigan. I was greatly encouraged by this group in the care and love they put into 2 pre-built Sheds of Hope during our October 6th training. They brought them down to the Rome Warehouse on October 16th, where I loaded them onto a trailer along with 2 other sheds which were pre-built by Lake Oconee Presbyterian Church in Georgia. The Holland sheds were set up at Christ the King Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Within two weeks, these sheds had traveled 1250 miles to get to their destination. It is only fitting that these well-loved and well-traveled Sheds of Hope are being used by Christ the King Church to store tools and materials, blessing all the families that are receiving sheds in their area.

Download the plans and try your hand at pre-building a Shed of Hope. I'm only a phone call away, if you have questions!


Praise:
• In our last newsletter, I asked you to  Please pray for God to open doors for future Sheds of Hope Roadshows The Lord is bringing people to the disaster sites in North & South Carolina and is giving them the vision for being involved in Sheds of Hope. They want to share this with their churches when they go back home.

Prayer:
• Pray for my travels between the Carolinas and Florida.
• One of my goals is to see that every shed we build is linked to a local church for follow-up. This is getting traction -- Pray that I will be able to encourage churches to see the importance and benefit to the kingdom when follow-up is done.
