Brother Joel

Please pray for our brother in Christ, Joel & his wife, Geri - he fell of his roof while fixing it. To give you a little background about this wonderful couple: They are located in Shallotte, NC and have been in the ministry for over 30 years, in a lot of different ways. The Lord has used them in so many ways to draw others to Himself, always giving of themselves for His honor and glory.

We (Faith-Building Missions) are going to work with some others to put a new roof on their home for them. We must first remove the old shingles and tin, then install new ply-wood in areas of need, and lastly, install new felt and shingles.

It will take several weeks for brother Joel to get better, but he is still pressing on for the Lord. Thank you for your prayers and support of this project.

“So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will show forth thy praise to all generations.”
Psalm 79:13

Robinson Family Needs Your Prayers

Please pray for the Robinson family. Ms. Robinson has terminal cancer and a broken arm. She is also taking care of a paraplegic son, along with trying to take care of her own mother who has Alzheimer’s.

They have been removed from their home because of the many needed repairs. Faith-Building Missions has partnered up with others in Whiteville, NC to work on this project. We’re cleaning up the yard, replacing the hot water heater, replacing heating and air systems, fixing cracks and re-plastering block walls. We’ll be replacing the roof, soffit, facia, and stucco, painting the interior and exterior walls, adding a new trim, laying new carpet floor covering throughout the entire home, and making any needed repairs to the bathrooms and kitchen.

Lord-willing, the family will move back in to their updated home by the end of January 2009. Once the family moves in, the outside of house will need stucco and painting. We hope to have
that completed by the end of February. Thank you so much for your prayers and support of this project.

“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.”
-1 Chronicles 16:34
