On April 24, over 100 Temple members served our community in the name of Jesus during Released. We had seven different projects: Disaster Relief Mud-out, Bethel School, Senior Yardwork 1-3, Homebound visits and Rolling Hills. Thanks to all who came out to serve. Special thanks go out to our project coordinators: Loy Seal, Woodie Cooper, Bob Myers, Dustin Alexander, Tim McCarthy, Dale Oden, and John Nugent.
One unique project from this past Released was the Disaster Relief Mud-out project. This project was headed up on the Temple side by Loy Seal, and worked in partnership with Rolling Hills and Alabama Disaster Relief.
The team of 13 worked all afternoon in the home of a family affected by the flooding in mid-March.
Due to the high volume of disaster relief requests, their house sat nearly untouched for over a month. Our team was able to rip out drywall and shiplap from five rooms to get the house ready for restoration.
In addition, they had the chance to encourage and pray with the couple, who are members of Firs t Baptist, Schwartz.
