Jesus said unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” John 11:25-26
Dear family and friends,
We were so very glad to welcome a 12-member work team all the way from Needmore, Pennsylvania. They arrived on Sunday February 28th. The team put in some very long days Monday through Friday March 1 – 5. They worked on the bridge at the end of Brazil Court and gave our duplex 2 coats of paint. Brad took a whole lot of photos of the team members at work. I have included 2 of those photos. I am also including a link to a video presentation of volunteers at work here on the property of The Homes of Ethnos360 during this volunteer season. https://homes.ethnos360.org/videos/the-homes-2020-2021-volunteers/
Brad took the photos used in this presentation.
We say a big THANK YOU to each one who has had a part. Many of our volunteers spend the entire winter months and well into spring helping us out. The RV court here is thinning out and it will not be long before we will be back to having just our staff members to accomplish all the tasks that need to be done around this facility. I have had some extra help in the Latham Center. Volunteers Pat, Janice, Lee and Cindy have all been part of the housekeeping team and helped carry the load. Lee is a local volunteer, and she drives here each Wednesday morning and spends the day cleaning and helping in a variety of ways. Cindy is also a local volunteer who spends the week here with her husband. They stay in their RV / camper and then travel home on the weekends. Both Lee and Cindy will continue to help even after all our other volunteers have left and gone to places up north. Two weeks ago, I started to train our newest staff member in housekeeping responsibilities. Hannah and her husband have 3 young children and live here on the property. I am so thankful that Hannah is willing to be a part of our team. She is still working on getting childcare arranged for her children. We have some staff ladies who have volunteered to help in this way.
Our 1999 Ford Explorer was giving us some troubles and it was determined that it would be too expensive to fix. Therefore, we have purchased a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. It has low mileage and was at a good price that we could afford. The Mercury gives us a very comfortable ride and gets good gas mileage. I am still getting used to the vehicle but am very happy with it. We looked at smaller vehicles, but they had a larger price tag and similar miles per gallon. We had the Explorer longer than any other vehicle in our married lives.
We sure would appreciate your prayers for us as we minister here in Sanford, Florida.
- Even though we are both in our mid 60’s, God continues to give us strength to accomplish the jobs He gives us.
- I thank the Lord for the extra help on the housekeeping team these past few months.
- Thank the Lord with us that we have not had a single case of COVID-19 among our Latham Center residents. Family and friends are now allowed to visit our folks who have basically been quarantined for a year.
- Brad and I plan to be in Maryland for a couple of weeks in April. Pray for safe travels and that we can be a blessing. Pray too for those who are covering our responsibilities while we are away
We are blessed and thankful to be a part of this organization that is taking the gospel to the ends of the earth. We serve the One who is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. We thank the Lord for YOU and the part you play in our lives as we minister here for the Lord.
By His grace,
Brad & Wanda Hull
