Fruit, Vegetables … and Meats!
We have two more weeks of NC Baptist on Mission FOOD BOX distributions. The hurricane caused some minor damage to the Carolina Beach Family Campground, one of our distribution locations. There is talk of the campground being sold which would mean that all 95 permanent residents at the campground would need to find a new place to live. Please pray that God will provide His guidance in all involved in this situation.

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.
Love Does Work Days
A lot of work has been accomplished on the home of Joe and Wendy Knox. The electrician is currently working on the home. After they are finished we will be ready for the final inspections for the plumbing, HVAC and electrical.
This fall we will need our LOVE DOES teams to go out on Thursdays and Saturdays to install interior flooring, wall boards and sheet rock on the ceiling. The plan is to have the home finished for Thanksgiving Dinner this November. Watch for notices about scheduled work days.
NEXT “LOVE DOES” DATE TBD | 9am – 2pm
Meet at Knox home — 28 White Sands Road, Hampstead NC at 9am
10 VOLUNTEERS needed! (to accommodate social distancing)

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.
