Operation Compassion Update on New House Rebuild

By , July 23, 2020

Operation Compassion and God’s Pit Crew made a joint announcement last June regarding the rebuild of two homes destroyed by the Easter tornadoes. The project was named The Matthew 5:14 Project: Building Together.

Initially, the homes were to be built in sections in Danville, VA and trucked to Cleveland, TN for a monstrous building project of two weeks in late July with hundreds of volunteers coming to help. These volunteers would be working in shifts around the clock in order to complete the project for the Woods family.

However, with the uptick in the positive results of the Covid-19 virus in East Tennessee, the leadership of the project determined it would be prudent to delay the building until October. The exact date has not been determined but will be announced as soon as it becomes available.

According to Lisa Boen, Operation Compassion vice president, “the delay of the project for a few months is the right thing to do. With the virus threat peaking and the extreme heat happening this month, it was a good decision to keep everyone safe and healthy.”

Operation Compassion, God’s Pit Crew, Men/Women of Action and Mercy Chefs are the initial partners spearheading this project. Others partners also include, Affordable Roofing, Siding and Gutters, Westmore Church of God and several local chapters of MWOA.

As with every project, Operation Compassion really needs its financial supporters. Join with Operation Compassion in The Matthew 5:14 Project: Rebuilding Together. Become a partner today!
