Love Does…

Rebuilding …

Last Thursday, May 14, Chris Coston and I helped Joe Knox work on his home located off of Sloop Point Road near Hampstead. As soon as Phase 2 is announced by the Governor, we will be allowed to take Mission Teams to the home. Joe has been working hard to get all the “internal” work done, such as HVAC, plumbing, and electrical. Soon he will need our FBC “Love Does” Teams to come and install the insulation, flooring, roofing, exterior siding, and interior wall coverings. Joe is very excited about the progress that has been made. Watch for the word to join us for our next “Love Does” Saturday Mission Day. –– Don

Encourage Love…

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.

Neighborhood Love…

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.
