2022 Improvement Projects
Faith Electric LLC
Jeff & Marcia Hicks with Faith Electric LLC in Alabama came this summer to light up our lives! They worked tirelessly on 12 of our 13 buildings replacing our old light bulbs with new LED's. They fixed and upgraded to made us shine around here. Some nights they worked past 10:00 pm.
You could also catch them cooking a meal for all of us. Marcia cleaned in buildings and swept out the entire shop while her husband worked on upgrading some of our old electrical issues. What a Team! Thank you, Jeff and Marcia! What a gift you each are to the Ministry Center!
Chaplains from Washington
Below is a group of disaster relief chaplains from Edmonds, Washington: Greg & Val, Dan & Kris's, Les & Lynn, Mike, Andrae, Rebecca, and Shad.
They worked for two weeks at Four Winds on many projects including: scraping and painting fences and the Chapel, weeding, and repairs. The ladies also cleaned our cabins and dorms like never before! Thank you all so much!!!
During their stay, a violent windstorm caused a tree to fall on our house - there was no damage (thank you, Jesus!). Within two hours the whole mess was cleaned up! Thank you, everyone!
All new roofs on our three cabins! Meanwhile, the gals cleaned of them:
