Restore Church is blessed by Evident Church

The Evident Crew

What a blessing to have partners in the work of the ministry.  God has been so gracious to bring people our way that want to help an under resourced area and show love to Restore and the neighborhood.

Evident Church came down to the 48206 and helped us clean out the 11529 Rosa Parks building.  With a crew of six from Evident, and also 5 from Restore we started cleaning up the building at 10:30 am.  With a 40 yard dumpster empty we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us.

By noon we were getting hungry so, thanks to Evident we had some yummy all beef hot dogs.  We invited some of the neighbors to join us and had 3 stop by and grab some chow.   By 2:00  pm we had cleaned the building out.  Hard work and many hands make the load light and that is what the Evident crew did.

I do want to thank everyone for their hard work and love for us.  It was a great day talking about Jesus, kidding around (you know me ;-}), and cleaning.

Here is a little bit of info on the building:

God was gracious to let me purchase the building for $5,000 through the Wayne County tax auction.

The building has no electrical going into it and most of the wiring is gone on the inside.  Plumbing also is almost non existent, because the cooper piping has been ripped out of it.

The building was full of clothing from people who have lived in the building, feces from the dogs who lived in it, and a lot of other debri that comes with a building that has been vacant for at least 6 years.

There are also 4 vehicles which I’m still trying to figure out what to do with, because I can’t take them to the scrap yard without having the titles.

Here are some pics.
