Here are some pictures from today in Panama City. The group picture includes neighbors Gloria and Johnnie that we removed trees on their roofs and then tarped. Johnnie attends the New Glenwood Church of Christ and was thrilled to see Church of Christ on on our trailer although we told here there were also volunteers from Methodist, Baptist and community churches on our team.

Gloria was so happy to get the tree off her house she insisted on cooking us a fantastic fried chicken dinner. We gave both families Lowe’s and Walmart gift cards thanks to the generosity of Twickenham members.

We also started working on the house you can barely see and cleared enough trees to at least access the home with a vehicle.

We completed work on 3 1/2 homes but received new request for help on approximately 15 more primarily from neighbors and friends of those we served. Thanks for all the financial support that makes this possible. And a special thanks to Leigh Ann for cooking us meals including the spaghetti casserole and desserts that everyone loved last night.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

First visit several years ago was confusing. First visit this summer, I was impressed with the service and the friendliness of the people. I was impressed with the focus on community. The openness, the understanding that the church is part of the world and local community.

I have always felt loved here. No one has ever judged me or made me feel less during any of my trials.

I consider the hearts of the people at Twickenham to be one of the greatest strengths. I have seen people quietly serve in so many ways and walk out life together. I also believe that the resources of the congregation can be a huge strength. Together, there is such a huge opportunity for ministry.
