We arrived at Coastal Oaks Church at 6:30 pm. The roads were clear. The kids were great travelers.
The damage done here in Rockport is intense. We could barely see as we drove into town. I know tomorrow will be eye opening for all of us. We have 4 work projects. Three of them are clearing debris from people’s yards (they are very excited for us to help) the other is to help paint here at the church. Coastal Oaks received a lot of damage. They are changing out children’s Sunday Shool rooms to house the incoming teams so the end of the building where we are now (we are at the other end) can be fixed. The wind tore off the outside siding at the end of the building.
The whole chapter of Romans 12 will be our focus.
We’re ready to serve! What this church is doing for their community when they have so much they need done themselves is nothing short of amazing. It’s a reflection of their relationship with Christ. Truly they set the example of putting others before themselves.
Romans 12:10-13 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Tomorrow we start. Thank you for allowing your student to come and serve. I’ll check back in tomorrow night.
