Christmas comes early for needy homeowners

April 24, 2004

Lee County- "Thank the Lord. God is in the blessing business," exclaims Salley Mosely.

The Lee County homeowner is more than happy to hear the buzzing of a saw Saturday morning because for her it's Christmas in April.

"I really need this being done. At the time I can't afford to have it done, and I know it's a blessing that it's being done."

The Christmas in April program is providing her with a team of volunteer workers that will make improvements to the home she and her husband built nearly fifty years ago.

"We're having to completely re-frame this screened porch because it was rotten. It was unsafe, so we completely re-framed it and we're going to put a new roof on it," says House Captain Phil Smith.

This is the third year members of the Albany Christian Church have participated in the building program, and now they've embraced it as a part of their ministry.

"It can involve everybody and that's the really neat part and it doesn't matter the we don't know who the people are, just they need some help and we can help them," says Pastor, Buddy Harris.

"It shows that with all the trials that we are having in the world today that there are still some good people in the world," adds Mosely who says she knows she's just been blessed by a few of them.

Mosely was just one of 13 homeowners who had improvements made to their homes Saturday though the Christmas in April program.
