Traveling for good

This past week we took a short trip to Fayetteville, NC to help with the rebuilding of homes destroyed by the flooding from Hurricane Matthew and its after-effects. Our team came from all over the US.  We were brought together by the IOCC (International Orthodox Christian Charities), a organization that does charitable work all around the globe. The IOCC partners with NCCUMC (North Carolina Council of United Methodist Churches) to bring volunteers to the most needy sites after a tragedy strikes.  After seeing some of the devastation that occurred in Fayetteville and Lumberton, NC, we all gained a new appreciation for the blessings we sometimes overlook.

Below are some of the people from our team working on a home that is midway through reconstruction.  

We came from Chicago, Baltimore, Wilmington, Minneapolis and Fuquay-Varina to help those less fortunate.

We built that!

Blessed are the poor in spirit……

Thanks to Don, Kelly, Dom. and the rest of the UMC Disaster Relief Team for your guidance and patience. And. thanks to Presbytera K and Theoni for their leadership…
