What an amazing start to 2018 it’s been. We had a couple smaller projects in January and February. Then jumped right into planning for our May 19th workday. On Saturday May 19, 2018 we had over 100 volunteers serving at 14 different homes. Over 1,000 hours of volunteer labor in one day! Check out our Facebook page and Instagram for pictures!

A huge thanks to Chancellor Baptist for being our host church, and Pastor Eric Goforth for sharing a devotional with our teams at our morning breakfast. We were very blessed with great such amazing volunteers serving all around Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford and King George. Thanks to our awesome workday sponsors that help make the day possible: Agora Coffee for sponsoring our coffee.  Roberson’s Music for sponsoring and preparing our volunteer/homeowner dinner. Also a huge thanks to realtors of the Fredericksburg Area Association of Realtors for serving with us!

Each of our volunteers got one of our awesome t-shirts thanks to our t-shirt sponsors:

 

Even with all those volunteers, there was still work to be done. Since the workday we’ve had over 20 volunteers out serving. This past week we had a youth group from Lifepoint King George out picking up trash and debris left after the work at several of the homes.  We also have had volunteers working on a handicap access project in Stafford.

Homeowner, Jason, suffered a stroke 2 years ago. On the workday we were able to remove a bedroom window and turn it into a door to provide easier access. We also constructed a small wood porch outside the door. This past weekend we were back at Jason’s working on the grading and form work to install a concrete sidewalk from that porch to his driveway. Unfortunately, the rain stalled our progress. But, we plan to get back out there soon to finish pouring the concrete! Make sure you are signed up to get our email’s so you’ll be informed when we are working and you can come help.

We are so incredibly blessed by these wonderful volunteers that give of their time and efforts to love and serve our neighbors. This was our biggest single workday to date, and we are so excited and thankful for all God has done through our desire to serve. Many folks have seen the love of Jesus in there lives thanks to our volunteers!
