John 15:12 – "This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.

Last week I stood on the porch at Casa De Shelly in Somotillo Nicaragua and listened to 4 schools teachers that were asking for help in building their houses. My response was very simple, I can only respond to the things that GOD has commanded me to do. We have built many houses in Nicaragua over the past several years and if God provides the funds then we will build them houses one at a time.
Pam and I returned home on Saturday and I was praying as we traveled about what God would have us to do over the next three weeks while home. It didn’t take long to get an answer. There is a lady here in Roanoke (Ginny Owens) that had a huge tree fall on her house back in June and it turns out that she doesn’t have any insurance and is suffering from MS. Friends of ours from Building Integrity covered the house and dried it out after the tree was removed. Now it is ready for repairs and there is NO material and NO money.
I’m reaching out to our BWCM family for money and help. Mike Patrouch, owner of Building Integrity estimates the cost of material to repair the house will be around $20,000.00. Mike is also helping to coordinate teams if you or your church family would like to volunteer. If you would like to contribute please send funds to our PO Box and we will apply 100% towards these repairs. If you would like to volunteer just e-mail Mike at

A life surrendered to Jesus is a life of SERVICE and SACRIFICE
