|Update on New Hope Village in New Bern|
The New Hope Village is nearly completed and ready to receive volunteer teams! The Neuse Forest Presbyterian Church has converted a storm-damaged educational building into a hosting facility for work teams coming from outside the area to spend the night. Over 5000 hours of volunteer time by hundreds of volunteers from near and far have contributed to the success of the conversion. Here are some pictures from our journey to re-purposing the building.
|Without the generous support of the churches of New Hope Presbytery, PDA and countless individuals this project could not have been completed.|
This new facility NOW starts to host hundreds of volunteers to help rebuild the homes and lives of those who, in many cases, have lost everything in Hurricane Florence. Our opening the Village enables Presbyterians and communities from across the country to come help. If you want to bring a work team, contact the PDA Call Center at (866) 732-6121 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you all for the many blessings, volunteer hours, prayers and support!
Grace and peace,
