Before sunrise on Saturday, May 8th, while most of us were still asleep in our cozy beds, members of the His Mission team gathered at the home of Samantha Watkins to construct a a 5’x8’ deck with 20’ ramp. Samantha has been in a nursing home for five months battling Covid-19 and has been in COVID-19 rehab. Doctors said Samantha could only return home if she had a ramp. The His Mission team learned about Samantha’s predicament and decided to take action. By 12:30 p.m. that day, the His Mission team had completed Samantha’s new ramp. Samantha will now be able to return home after a grueling five months. His Mission team members who worked on this project were Janice Wise Lindsey, Edward Lindsey, Glen A. Davis, Keith Duck, Brittany Toms, Kristen Myranda Dillon, Thomas Dison, Larry Ramsey, Dewayne Ramsey, Ronald Aaron, Lane Tims, Steve Cloud, Justin Davis, David Leggett, and Ken Roberts.
His Mission is a local non-profit multi-denominational team of men and women who have done countless projects for the betterment of the community including working on the homes of the less-fortunate at no cost to the homeowner. In the past His Mission team members helped build an orphanage and churches on the Yucatan Peninsula, and numerous projects in the foothills of Tennessee. Most recently, His Mission has turned their attention to local missions in Bienville, Jackson, Lincoln, and Winn Parishes.
Materials for these projects are expensive and the cost of building supplies is constantly increasing. If you would like to help by making a donation, please mail checks to:
