As Holy Week peaks with Good Friday and our last day roofing, we reflect on our past week at SOS. Our team finished all six of the assigned projects this week. We roofed in total four houses and got another 2 started. The professionals at SOS will finish shingling the other two houses this coming week. Thank you for the many prayers this week as they were answered. Several times throughout the week it began to rain. All work on the job sites ceased, and a prayer for the rain to stop ensued. Shortly after, the rain let up. This happened three times this week. The team will be bringing back many stories among these likes – where Yahweh answered prayers.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. – Hebrews 11:6 NIV
On Saturday, we will be traveling to the Memphis Civil Rights Museum, which is on the same property as the Lorraine Motel where civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King was shot. The team will be enjoying some classic southern barbecue at Central Barbecue in Memphis for lunch. Dinner will be at Gus’s Fried Chicken. After dinner, we will spend some time walking about downtown Memphis along Beale Street. Easter Sunday will consist of attending church at SOS. In Memphis, there is a network of home churches that meet at SOS a few times out of the year together. Easter Sunday happens to be one of those occasions. Lunch is being graciously provided to the team by the network of home churches. After lunch, we will embark on our journey to Bowling Green, KY. From there, we will be staying at a hotel overnight and enjoying company of the team. Mammoth Cave is near Bowling Green, KY. The team will go to Mammoth Cave on Monday morning. After the excursion to Mammoth Cave, we will venture back to Taylor.
Thank you for your prayers this week, but please keep the safety of all Taylor’s spring break missions teams in your prayers as we begin to head back to Taylor.
