The last post was the Mountain Press article regarding the project for a man who lost his family in a fire, had a traumatic head injury, and was living alone with no one to care for him. ACTUALLY NO! The article was about LIVE-IT and Keep Sevier Beautiful partnering together to clean up his property. But the “REAL STORY” is a man named Frank who is still alone with his two dogs when all the volunteers who came for the day go home. I do want to thank Pathways Church for sponsoring and sending lots of volunteers this past Saturday to Franks home to “make a difference”. At the end of this Saturday’s project day, Frank and I stood on his front porch looking at all had been done. His only question was “Have you found someone to live with me yet”. You see when it all comes down to it, we really don’t need things fixed…we need each other. The photos are below:
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”.
