hmmm Is it time to show what Doddridge is made of?

On January 22, Susan Rebert lost her home, her job, and all of her furnishings in that terrible fire across the street from Dollar General in West Union. A single mother, with two young sons, Susie had no insurance.

If you have ever moved, you already know a lot of what is involved here. Do you have building skills? A couple of contractors have gotten together spearheaded by "By Grace Masonry" - and plan on a West Virginia Makeover!  We will be building a modest 3 bedroom home with a beauty shop that fits her surrounding community.  Construction projection on or about April 6th, 2009 with estimates of completion within a two week timeframe.  We request that all contractors, donors, representatives of the town, and all volunteers to be present when keys are turned over to this family.

Donations of supplies and labor and talent will help make this miracle for one of our own. Ladies - Churches - children: Get Involved!  Bag pretzels, cookies, snacks and give to the workers and tell them thanks!  Organize your groups and see what you can do; we need food, and video and pictures to remember this!  Fundraisers help .  Help is needed with painting, organizing, decorating, serving.  (If you will be organizing, have one representative call Jean Kruse at By Grace Masonry and let her know your project.)  We need more communications!  And please Pray!!

Please note: A lot of companies are  giving us a discount or materials at cost, so your dollar will definitely be stretched!!!  (God is Good)

The economy is bad, but when God is in charge of our lives, we have nothing to fear.

more in the West  Union Newsletter (and it will be added to the web page) as it happens!

Hurry, Hurry! We have a VERY short time-frame to get this done...
