We patched the roof of a woman in our community a few months ago with the help of Westwood Baptist (our parent church). She is on dialysis and has her daughter and 2 month old grandson living with her. We were able to fix a part of the roof, but the rest of the roof has started to leak. She called today to tell me that the heavy rain caused the roof to leak heavily and the ceiling fell in and nearly hit her grand baby.
The roof needs to be replaced. We are still too small to tackle a project of this size on our own, but I’m confident that we can work together to make this happen. Here are the things we need:
- Prayer. Ask God to work in this situation to draw this family toward Christ. Pray that God’s people will be moved to compassion for the hurting and take action.
- Money for building materials. You can donate directly to the church’s Compassion Fund for this project here.
- Roofing materials for a mobile home
- Volunteers with carpentry and/or roofing skills that can help us repair the roof
Here’s an opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission right here in Montevallo. Please let me know if you’re in the area and can help. Pass this on to someone else you know who might be able to help. Let’s make this happen as soon as possible so this woman can get her home dry and comfortable for herself and her family. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (205) 304-5445.
