But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me. With your faithful help
That the Spirit may move upon the hearts of others to give of their time in service to share love and hope
For safety in their travels and in their work
For strength and wisdom for the task ahead. For those who work long-term organizing local recovery efforts after disasters
For the men at Huntersfield Christian Training Center in the Discover Life Ministry - that they have continued grace to grow spiritually and learn new life skills for their recovery
- Specifically for Alan as he join us as a long term volunteer in Pamlico County
Another great winter at Huntersfield Christian Training Center working with the men in the Discover Life recovery program!
If you recall..last year in Prattsville, NY we helped to elevate the house that will become transitional living for men from the Discover Life program. While we were working on tornado homes in Dawson Springs last summer, volunteer groups framed up the addition which will become leadership housing. This Winter, with the men's help, we completed framing and blocking, installed rough wiring, plumbing for the heating system, hung drywall and constructed the live edge staircase for the apartment. Along with the various other chores and activities at Huntersfield, It was a busy and Productive Winter season!
Back to Western KY for Tornado Disaster Rebuild for 2023 season!
Upon seeing the devastation in western Kentucky from the December, 10th F4 tornadoes, our hearts were drawn to be part of rebuilding and getting families back in their homes. Part of that decision was for a two year commitment. We are excited to get back to work with the great folks in Kentucky!
God directs and leads and we are following.
We are collaborating with the
Hopkins County Long Term Recovery Committee
Pennyrile Habitat for Humanity. to continue working Hopkins County and the small town of Dawson Springs where more than 50% of the homes were destroyed and more than 70% of the homes (over 600) were significantly damaged.
We need your support in any way you can give.

With so much work to do, now more than ever...
The Call to Build needs your support!
There are so many families displaced from their homes and in need of help to get them restored.
We are doing all we can, but would love to build the capacity to do more!
If you aren't already, please consider becoming a monthly contributor.
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Tim and Marcy Sheaffer are disaster repair and rebuild mission workers.
They are... Called To Build.
Many generous organizations offer immediate emergency services to those hit by disasters. Because of these services families are provided with relief from the immediate threat of homelessness.
However, within months it is not uncommon for a community to be left wondering what's next. After the immediate needs are met, they still need a home.
During this time some families fall between the cracks. Tim and Marcy offer re-build services to disaster affected communities with vulnerable populations. Through this work they have witnessed lives transformed.
