Porch Blessing

Recently my wife was talking to one of our local preachers Seven Gibson and mentioned that I couldn’t get out the back door. She told him we had a back deck with a ramp and it was covered but the back door was hard to get through in my chair. He immediately called another local Sheldon Livesay who is the director at Of One Accord Ministry and told him. Every year their are mission groups who come in and do projects for people who submit an application at Of One Accord or Jubilee Project. I didn’t think I would be able to get any work done as it was late in the process but I got a call from someone and they came here to fill out the application (first blessing). I thought that would be where it ended but I was sitting here and my wife mentioned we had not heard anything on a Friday, I said it was in God’s hands and all we could do was wait. Got another call Saturday telling me they were stopping by Sunday with a group that had come in to see what we needed (second blessing). When they came by, we thought they may just add to the deck, our plan after that was to put a door in the kitchen so I would be able to get out of the house. After they looked at it, we were informed they would add 8 feet to the deck (third blessing), put an overhang on it (fourth blessing) and put in a 36 inch door (fifth blessing).

They showed up Monday to start and it was finished Friday. Exactly one week from my wife asking me about it and it was done. The group who came was from Macedonia Baptist Church in Newnan GA. The group who was here were some of the most likeable people I have ever met. We would have been happy with any amount of help and never expected that much but when God Blesses you it is bigger than you can imagine. What they did for me was a big blessing and the help they give people who need it makes me want to get involved and help in some way. Since I can’t do the physical part I will donate to their program. If you want to help too send the checks to: Macedonia Baptist Church 1504 Macedonia Rd., Newnan GA 30263 and put Summer Mission Trip in the memo section. Personally I intend to send a check every month, I doubt if it will cover what they have done for me anytime soon but maybe it will help someone else who needs it.

On Thursday while they were here working, UPS delivered a large box. When I opened it there was a big screen monitor in it from a group I helped with their website, RattleBox a Blues Band out of Detroit, I know some of them and love their music. They mentioned they were going to send me a gift but I never expected anything like that (sixth blessing). I ordered a wall mount and my son in law put it up for me.


I will be adding more information and pictures soon.
