Summer 2006 - Construction Mission Trip to
Havelock Community Missionary Baptist Church

Friday, June 16, 2006

Construction Progress, Recognition Dinner, and Group Picture Photo Album for Friday, June 16.

The Construction Team from College Street completed their work at about 10:00 PM on Friday, June 16 and returned home on Saturday. On Sunday both the Construction and Youth teams shared their experiences during both morning services at College Street.

The church family at Havelock will continue work on their new sanctuary in preparation for the early July arrival of the North American Mission Board's Brick Laying Team. Sarah and Dan Farmer, from Southwestern Baptist Church in Johnson City, Tennessee, coordinate this team.

Our team members greatly appreciate the wonderful folks from the Havelock Church, and the Friday night meal provided a time of thanksgiving and presentations. Havelock's associate pastor Keith Burke presented College Street with a beautiful "double eagle" statue, which he said represents the "double portion" we gave their church. The women of the church also presented our ladies with beautiful gifts.

We send our thanks to the church family at Havelock for giving us "double portions" of love, fellowship, friendship, hospitality, excellent meals, and the loan of their vans. We have come to love every one of you! We all hope to return for the dedication of your new sanctuary!

Our thanks are also extended to the wonderful church family of New Bern First Baptist Church for providing us with accommodations and for their outstanding hospitality during the construction team's stay.

 Mission Teams Update: Thursday, June 15, 2006

Construction Progress Photo Album for Thursday, June 15.

This was "Truss day" for the Havelock Sanctuary building team. Good weather allowed us to install over half of the truss system. We also began sheeting the roof. We hope to complete our work here by late Friday afternoon or early Saturday. After we leave, the Havelock church will continue construction and also begin to prepare for the arrival of the Baptist Bricklaying Team.

Our Youth will leave tomorrow (Friday morning) and are expected to return home as previously scheduled. They have many exciting stories to tell from their Vacation Bible School and musical presentations.

Mission Teams Update: Wednesday, June 14, 2006

Construction Progress Photo Album for Wednesday, June 14.

Our construction team and the wonderful folks from the Havelock church spent quite a few hours today dodging Tropical Storm Alberto's rain and winds. The rain stopped in late afternoon, but gusty winds continued for some time. We were unable to set the trusses due to the bad weather, but improvements by afternoon allowed us time to straighten walls and nail up some of the sheathing. The crane is scheduled to arrive by 9:00 AM Thursday morning and we will then begin the roof.

Our youth continued work with Vacation Bible School and also gave another wonderful presentation of the 2-DIE-4 musical drama in Morehead City.

Continue to pray for our teams as we complete our work and journey home! Our youth should make the return trip on Friday and the construction team hopes to return later this weekend.

Mission Teams Update: Tuesday, June 13, 2006

This is another brief update since the construction team was able to work until almost dark today on the Havelock Community Missionary Baptist Church. The rains held off and we were able to erect most of the wall framework. We are scheduled to set the roof trusses Wednesday, but this may be postponed since the forecast calls for the possibility of rain for most of the day.

Our gratitude is extended to the wonderful folks here at the Havelock Church! The food is fantastic and their hospitality is wonderful! Thank you for providing our youth group with two vans until our bus it repaired.

Our Youth Missions Team visited the the Havelock church briefly today and brought us good news of their very successful Vacation Bible School efforts in Morehead City. They are looking forward to another presentation of musical/drama 2-DIE-4 tomorrow night.

Brief Mission Teams Update: Monday, June 12, 2006

The Construction team began work on the Havelock Community Missionary Baptist Church addition this morning and was able to work for more than 8 hours before a late afternoon rain storm. If the weather holds, we hope to have the walls framed, erected and ready for trusses by tomorrow night. The forecast for Tropical Storm Alberto calls for remnants to pass near us late Wednesday, which may delay our efforts.

Our youth mission team in Morehead City found it necessary to cancel tonight's scheduled drama/musical presentation due to weather and a break-down of our new bus. Repairs on the bus are under warranty and will begin tomorrow. Until the repairs are completed, the Havelock Church has graciously donated their two 15 passenger vans to our group.

Hopefully we will have another update tomorrow night, with pictures. Pray for our teams as we continue our work throughout the week!

Missions Update: Sunday, June 11, 2006

Our Youth Mission Team presented the musical/drama 2-DIE-4 to Victory Baptist Church, Newport, North Carolina. Our thanks to Pastor Philip Rodgers and the wonderful people of Victory Baptist Church for their hospitality.
