Youth Mission Trip, Whiteville, NC – February 2017

On the weekend of February 17-19 Tabernacle youth took a mission trip to do hurricane relief.  We had seven youth attend.

The weekend was done in conjunction with First Baptist Fayetteville’s youth group.  On Friday and Saturday night we had worship and a message.  The Associate Pastor at FBC Fayetteville spoke Friday night, and I spoke Saturday night.

We spent the day on Saturday in Whiteville cleaning out the home of a woman whose house was flooded.  We were able to meet the woman and she was appreciative of the work done.  A few of the youth also helped to unload shingles at various work sites in the area.

Here is a link to an article published in the Sunday edition of the Fayetteville observer about the weekend:

On Sunday the youth participated in worship in a variety of ways.  They youth sang a song with the pastor of FBC Fayetteville playing guitar and myself playing the drum.  They also gave a testimony of where they saw God working this weekend in the service.  I attached a few pictures; I will try to put together an album of the weekend.

On the way home we stopped at Beacon Rescue Mission in Dunn, and we were given a tour of the facility. I think it was a very successful trip, and the Lord worked throughout the weekend!
