Did you wake up this morning, walk in your bathroom, flip on the switch and your light come on immediately? Then walk over to the sink, turn on the faucet and water came out? Let me introduce to you to Clarence and Nell Clarence is 82 years old with Alzheimer’s and Nell is in her 70’s. In order for Clarence and Nell to be able to turn on their water this morning they had to climb under their house and turn it on, then climb back under the house to turn it off . In the bathroom the light switch doesn’t work and the colored Christmas lights hanging on the wall brings very little light. Clarence built this house himself when he and Nell first got married. They have worked hard all their lives and now have gotten older. Too old to make repairs and their home has all kinds of issues. They do not live in Africa or in a country where there has been an earthquake, tornado or tsunami. They live right here in Seymour, Tennessee and yet have to climb under the house every time they need water and then back under the house and turn it off.
The volunteer contractor that looked at Clarence and Nell’s home says it will take about $1240 to make these plumbing and electrical repairs. Would you like to help? You can make donations to help LIVE-IT get Clarence and Nell’s home repaired by mailing a check to P.O. Box 416 Seymour TN 37865 or contribute online at http://www.live-it.tv/Give.html.

Clarence and Nell are waiting for someone to help…….will it be you?
Pathways Church in Sevierville, TN recently adopted two LIVE-IT projects that “literally” changed the environments of two local widows. Pathway’s mens group, “Men in motion” has already completed many service projects within their church, and has recently partnered with LIVE-IT to reach further into the community .
Another Sevier County Church that is encouraging their people to “get out of the box” is Seymour Heights Christian Church in Seymour, TN. LIVE-IT is excited to be a part of these, and many other outreach oriented churches, and is looking forward to being a witness to the “Love” of Jesus Christ through “Loving Our Neighbors”.
