Transitional House-warming Shower
Tuesday, March 22 • Buffalo Community Center • 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Love INC-Big Woods is excited to share that our transitional house should be ready for occupancy by April 1st! The only thing left to do is fill it with household goods. For that, we need YOU! Gift items or checks can be brought during the shower and light refreshments will be served. We are registered at Target (First name: Love in the & Last name: Name of Christ) and Walmart (Housewarming registry: Love in the Name of Christ).
BCC came alongside Love In the Name of Christ (INC) with the transitional housing need in our area. Our congregation raised $19,001.25 that will go towards approximately 3 years of maintenance, expenses, taxes and miscellaneous needs for the home.
As many of you know, last fall Love INC-Big Woods was offered an old farm house in rural Buffalo to be used as a transitional home for a local family needing a temporary place to stay. The owners had verbally agreed to lease Love INC-Big Woods the house for 5 years for $1.00. In January they found out that the owners had changed their minds, so that offer is no longer valid. Even though we were initially disappointed, we know that God has something better in mind for us!
With the help of our Buffalo Covenant church body, Love INC-Big Woods was in the position of being able to purchase a used mobile home to fix up for transitional housing. The trailer house has been purchased in Howard Lake and the crew has been working hard to get it ready for use. As you can see from the pictures to the right of this update, there is much work to be done. We will keep you updated on the progress of getting the home ready to be lived in, and any updates from Love In the Name of Christ on how the gospel is being heard through this home. Exciting missions work right in our county!
Please continue praying for this portion of their ministry. They know there is a great need for this in Wright County, but they want to proceed in God’s timing and with His wisdom.
