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 attic of the bunk house. You can find a photo gallery of the over 350 shirts on our Rebuild Lakeshore Facebook page.
Hurricane Michael Florida relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts can use your help. Our friends David and Cindy Jordan have been on the ground there, doing clean up, meeting needs, and providing meals. They have been feeding thousands of victims, volunteers, and first responders. They could use all the help they can get. Their granddaughter, pictured above, lends her expertise by advertising for the free meals they are serving. Will you do what you can to help?
I met the Jordans through their “Carpenters for Christ” mission trips to Lakeshore. They have been a tremendous help over the years. They have served Christ and given assistance to countless people across the country with their generosity. Now the need has come to their own back yard.
The Taunton Family Children’s Home in Wewahitchka Fl. has opened their doors to host mission teams that David leads. It can house up to 45 people. It is a two story house. The second story has two large bunkhouse rooms with 12 bunk beds on each side. Each side has restrooms, showers and sinks. The first floor has a large dining room to feed all at one time. The kitchen has three ovens, a microwave, gas stove, industrial refrigerator and two deep freezers. It does not cost anything to stay but a donation is always welcome but not needed.
David already has a few rebuilding projects going. A church deacon’s block home had the kitchen torn off by the storm. A team of block layers could begin work imediatly. They also could use roofers asap. Whatever you and your group can do would be greatly appreciated. Contact David Jordan (firstname.lastname@example.org or call / text at 850-951-3127) for more details and to plan your trip.
