A Blaise of Glory

It was great to see our good friend Blaise Dornisch today. He and his crew rode their bikes all the way from PA. Blaise made dozens of trips down to the gulf coast after Katrina, bringing relief supplies and assistance. He has been a tremendous blessing over the years. It was a joy to show…

Mud Out Supplies

When doing mud-out work after a flood event, we have found these things very useful.

Spring Break at the County Dump

While Spring Break often conjures images of sun screen and lounge chairs, for these Texas students, spring break involved bug spray and visions of a landfill. Last Monday, the student ministry of Lifepoint Fellowship (McKinney,TX) spent the day with us, cleaning up the construction debris from the previous week. They also removed the winter plastic…

The Pastor’s Porch

This Kentucky crew, led by my good friend Tommy Floyd, has made numerous trips over the years to the gulf coast. I lost count of how many homes they framed up following Hurricane Katrina. Their ability to work together and accomplish so much, in less than a week has become legendary in our Rebuild Lakeshore…

Puerto Rico 2019 – Hermanos en una misión

God greatly blessed our 2019 Mission Trip to Puerto Rico. My two brothers, Keith Elbourne and David Elbourne accompanied me on this trip. What a joy it was to spend time with them and accomplish this good work for the glory of Christ. Our main mission was to bring a particular blessing to my good…

Puerto Rico Mission Trip

I am heading back to Puerto Rico and appreciate your prayers for the trip. Shortly after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island my good friend Mateo Melendez and I made a visit to check on several pastors he knows there. The mission was one of encouragement and fact finding to see how we could best serve…

Family Mission Trips are Fun

Our good friends from Michigan made another family mission trip to the gulf coast last week. The weather wasn’t quite as nice as it is today, but at least it wasn’t cold. You never know this time of year. The rain and mud slowed us down a bit, but flexibility has always been the motto…

Bayside, Basketball, and BUGS

Bayside Baptist Church is on the rebound, in more ways than one. After undergoing a successful church revitalization in the last couple of years, the congregation says, “game on!” Thanks to a mission team from Georgia the church now has an outdoor basketball court on their church property. The new fenced in recreation area, with…

Mission Trip T-Shirts

If you made a mission trip to Lakeshore between 2005-2012, you will remember the T-shirt collection hanging from the ceiling of our make-shift dining hall. You probably even signed one of your group’s shirts. When the old kitchen came down to make room for the new church building, we tucked the shirts away in the…
