CCSS Mission Build a Huge Success
Thank you to everyone who participated in the CCSS Mission Build Servant Day last Saturday at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot. nearly 50 Volunteers from Concordia Community Support Services became a part of a total of 225 volunteers to construct walls to house 18-23 year old girls in foster care. The event and Mission Build was a great success and God is to be praised. Along with framing 185 walls in 3 hours, 31 fleece blankets were made for Ronald McDonald House, 150 Bibles were marked with specific Bible verses for Light of Life Mission, 12 infant blankets were started for area hospitals, 625 greeting cards were made for the military, 573 dry soup mixes were packed and will be delivered to area food banks, and many sun dresses were made for girls throughout the world.
The large dormitory style house that was constructed Saturday, September 15th and was loaded on a semi Sunday, the 16th which took off for Durant, Oklahoma. The house will become a home to 18-23-year-old girls who have been in foster care. At the age of 18 in Oklahoma all foster care stops, and many young people are left homeless. A J127 Ministry teenager are taken in and taught practical life skills, able to continue their education, and much more. It has been a dream and goal of this organization to have a building in which the young adults can live and learn before stepping out on their own. It is the goal of this organization to have the building completed by the end of the year. You can follow the progress at www.j127ministry.com or j127ministry on Facebook.
