In this episode we welcome 516 Project – Construction Ministry founder, James Roberson. James started 516 Project out of a desire to be the light and hope of Jesus to those who feel overwhelmed or defeated by the darkness of their circumstances. James and his team shines that light by “helping homeowners in need of home repairs who are unable to afford or who have physical barrier to completing the repairs on their own.” We love that and wanted to share him and his heart with you.
8 Days of Hope
This was the main reason for James coming on the show.
Eight Days of Hope is a Christian, non-profit organization that is both evangelical and non-denominational. They also exist to show the love and hope of Jesus Christ by serving people in need. James shared that 8DH meets needs in two ways, immediately after a disaster hits (rapid response: by providing shelter and needed relief, and in the later rebuilding process (Disaster Recovery: after it seems like the world has forgotten about it).
Their next major project takes place in Lafayette, LA from June 4 – June 11, 2017. On their website, 8DH explained the situation in Lafayette by saying, “This area has experienced devastating damage. 140,000 homes were damaged in the state in August (2016) as over 20 inches of rain fell in a short period of time causing over $15 Billion dollars of damage!” So they’re going to make a difference and bring hope.
Please consider praying, volunteering or donating to this cause as we will be serving from June 4th through the 11th.
