And the Beat Goes On....
Only 44 more sleeps until the Pearlington Volunteer Reunion. Remember to click on the link to the right and get your registration in!
Hopefully, by the end of the day, you will notice links to three new Blogs (I didn’t have enough to do yet)!
- Adopt-a-Home in Pearlington will enable groups and individuals to obtain details on a variety of rebuilding projects, with an eye to "adopting" one of those projects. This may be a home you may choose to adopt in its entirety, or to join with other like-minded groups to get the job done.
- The Pearlington Builders Blog will list contacts for best rates on materials and resources, as well as - eventually - an Experts Panel to provide off-site advice and assistance on particular rebuilding challenges.
- Raising Resources, Raising Roofs will begin now to list a variety of fund raising devices your group can use to create the resources necessary to continue to provide homes and hope for the people of Pearlington.
CHECK THEM OUT! Make sure you add them to your "Favorites" for future reference.
Please feel free to submit offers to help in any of these areas, new ideas and resources as you will Please forward all that to me and I will see that it gets in the right place.
Lots more to come.
We would also today like to welcome Four Square Disaster Relief to the C.O.D.R.A. FAMILY. Please check out their link to the right. Pastor John Elliott sends the following:
"Hi, I am John Elliott, the Disaster Relief Coordinator for Foursquare Disaster Relief on Hwy. 604 in Pearlington, MS. Please feel free to list our phone # 409.739.7474 and our firstname.lastname@example.org or our web site www.trustandobey.org and we will do what we can to help.

Thought you might also be inspired by another man’s dream to help:

Hope to make a number of trips, as funds permit. 4 x 8 1/2" Sheetrock. Estimated arrival is Friday July 14th, 2006. Destination - Pearlington, Mississippi.
LETS HAVE CHRISTMAS IN JULY !!!
