The efforts of 40 volunteers save a family from losing their home. The largest LIVE-IT project to date was completed on August 14, 2010 when 40 volunteers gave up their Saturday to remove lots of yard debris from a South Knoxville home. On Monday, August 16th the property was inspected and the notice to condemn the property was cancelled. Again, our thanks to Gatlinburg Falls Resort for sponsoring this project and providing many of the wonderful volunteers who participated in this clean-up effort.
Local churches help LIVE-IT store donated building materials.
This week marks a new chapter in the mission of LIVE-IT Ministries as three Sevier County churches agreed to help LIVE-IT with a problem it has struggled with for months. As the awareness of LIVE-IT has increased with builders and contractors, so have donations of building materials. This has certainly been a blessing, however storage of these donated materials has posed a challenge. This week, New Hope Church of God, The Gathering, and Evergreen PCA will be placing a 10×40 container on their property for LIVE-IT to use as storage for these donated building materials. LIVE-IT will paint these containers black and logo them with the familiar (LIVE-IT – Taking the Bible out of the box). This will further serve as a reminder to the community of the commitment these churches have to “demonstrate” the love of Christ in their communities through service projects.
To God be the Glory!!
