Compassion In Action
The amazing beauty of Compassion in Action
weekend is seeing Christians from different walks of
life, different backgrounds and different churches
working together to serve the community for Jesus.
Volunteers from Big Creek, Lawrenceville Church of
God, Roswell United Methodist Church, Perimeter
Church, East Lanier, Grace Point, The River, Mount
Pisgah United Methodist Church, and Cross Pointe
Church came together through HRM and made this
Thank you to all of our volunteers. Because of your
willing hearts and serving hands, Home repairs
Ministries was able to touch the lives of hundreds of
people. We worked on homes of two widows, framed
houses for the Gulf and Alabama, built a handicap
ramp and served on multiple projects for ministries in
Cumming, Duluth and Sandy Springs. A big thank you
to our project leaders for organizing and overseeing
the safety of our many volunteers.
Why We Serve
Below is a short encouraging note as to why we
serve. Our hope is that you are as encouraged as we
were. "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do
for me" Matthew 25:40.
"I am writing to say how grateful and thankful I am for
the [ministry's] help.
Several people called me trying to help get my
dryer fixed and I can't find my paper I had written
everyone name on. I know one person I spoke with
other than you was Harvey Anderson. So I am writing
to thank him, you and a special thanks for Mr. Walters
who worked relentlessly trip after trip in an effort to
make sure he had done all he could do. He went
beyond any friend or church I know would have or have
Mr. Walters was determine I would have a working
dryer. With the price of gas he drove an hour one way
three times to fix my dryer and that was not counting
the trips he made to appliance stores trying to find the
part at a reasonable price. He then even call the
organization to get the money to purchase the part
because he knew I did not have the money. There are
no words to describe how it has made me feel to
know that there are people who are still living and
following God's directions. I am one of the kind of
women the Bible speaks of who the church should be
helping, but this is only the second time I have seen it
You never asked me my affiliation, what church I
attend, did I attend a church or would I attend your
church afterward. You just helped me because I was
a human being and needed help. The only criteria I
had to meet was being in need and contacting you.
That is "Love".
I thank God for you all and I pray that each one of you
receive God's blessings a hundredfold for each kind
deed you do for all of your families throughout the
Again, Many, Many, Many thanks for your help. This
will not be forgotten and I will be there soon to see if I
can join you because you are the kind of Christians I
want to be. God Bless you"
