MISSION TEAM UPDATE – 14 persons from Grace will be traveling

 to Stumpy Point, North Carolina to assist in rebuilding efforts from

 Hurricane Irene in August of 2011. Stumpy Point is an old fishing

 village on the coast and homes that were not built (lately) on stilts got

 several feet of water in them and roofs took a hit as well with the

 incessant winds from the hurricane. Our main task is to build a new

 home for RD Price. RD and his son, Curtis and family, lost their

 homes to Hurricane Irene. RD is retired, the former fire chief in

 town, and a widower of 7 years. Our group will be working with

 Bruce & Laurie Hawley, RCA appointed persons to be on site to assist

 with and supervise the work. Our partner, UMCOR – United

 Methodist Committee on Relief – is the only long term recovery

 organization helping out in the coastal counties. We will be leaving

 Grace around 1 PM Friday, April 19, and arriving in Stumpy Point

 late Saturday, April 20. After a week of building, we will be

 returning late Saturday, April 27 to GR. Please be in prayer for the

 mission team volunteers who are participating in this work

 adventure: Larry Kleymeer, Phyllis & Rog VanderSloot, Jim & Sheila

 McElroy, Les & Tinna Van Wyk, Dee Danavage, Elaine Martin, Della

 Sawyer, Lillian VanderVeen, Terry Morris, and Dale & Shari Dood.
