Fruit, Vegetables … and Meats!
Each week the NC Baptist on Mission gives us 50 boxes of Fruit and Vegetables and 36 boxes of ham and chicken. One week we deliver them to our Karen refugee families and friends and the alternate week we deliver them to the families at the Carolina Beach Family Campground. These boxes of food will be provided throughout the summer and are greatly appreciated. Please pray for the Campground leadership as they are experiencing some difficulties with facilities and upkeep.
If you know any families who could use a box of fresh fruit, vegetables, and now ham and chicken, supplied by the NC Baptist on Mission, contact Don Vigus at 910-619-4800 or EMAIL.

Plans to Resume in Phase 3 …
As soon as our state enters Phase 3 of the reopening process, we will return to taking mission teams to work on the home of Joe and Wendy Knox in Hampstead.
Hebrews 10:24 says, “…Think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” (NLT). This verse was written over 2000 years ago and still applies to you and me this week. Not only do we need to be doing “acts of love” for those around us, but we need to be “motivating” one another to do the same. In our digital age, we must look for opportunities to interact and encourage each as we share the love of Jesus.
Let’s all think “Neighborhood Love” as we begin our third month of social distancing. We still all need to stay “six feet apart,” but as we take our daily neighborhood exercise walk, make a special effort to make eye contact and give a friendly wave to everyone we see. If anyone on your street needs help with yard care due to their age or any other special situation, make an effort to come to their rescue as the grass (and weeds) have really started to grow. Another idea is to start a prayer list of all your neighbors and spend time each day asking God to bless each of them.
