Jimmy Esposito Newk’s Fundraising

Carlos Mendoza Bridges, Events, Share Leave a comment   , , , , , , ,

Emma Sturm wrote this for the blog about the Newk’s Fundraiser for Jimmy Esposito:

The Newk’s fundraiser was a surprising event. With the economy as bad as it is, people from the community came to break bread and opened their already tight wallets. Several people said they wanted to give more but they gave all that they could. We met different people from all walks of life. I was approached by a woman who gladly bragged and shined of her husband Paul Davis. Mrs Davis glowed as she told me that her husband is a 15 year survivor of a heart transplant. He is due for his 15th year check up the following week after the event. Paul Davis smiled a gentle smile as he told me he wanted to call Jimmy and speak to him personally. Mr and Mrs Davis were so honored to be apart of the event. Once the night came to an end, Newk’s kept their doors open to our event all the way until close. As several of us got into our patrol cars we were approached by a young man, his name is Roman Crews , he gave us his whole tips for the evening 24.00. For an 18 year old college student that is a lot of money. Roman told me he graduated from George County High School. He moved down to the coast to go to college. Roman lives on his own, works two jobs and goes to MGCCC JD full time in hopes to be accepted into USM nursing program.


Fall 2012 – Harvest Trip (Hayovel)

Carlos Mendoza Bridges, News Leave a comment   , , , , , , , , , ,

It is not too late to join an incredible journey to Israel, the covenant land of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is an opportunity for God-fearers from the nations to come together and serve independent Jewish farmers in the heartland of Israel – harvesting vineyards in the mountains of Samaria and Judea! (There is also a pruning trip in the spring.) Watch the Bible come to life, and be a part of the prophetic restoration of God’s chosen people to their covenant land! Come to bless and be blessed! If you cannot make the trip yourself, but would like to sponsor a harvester, please go to buildingbridgesint.org and make a donation with a comment that your donation is to support HaYovel.

Who should come?

HaYovel is all about family order and proper authority. Just as much as we need physically strong workers, we also need elders for wisdom and grounding and homemakers to keep things running smoothly. We encourage families to come together if possible.

What should I expect?

Come expecting to be challenged and inspired! Flexibility and a heart to humbly serve are prerequisites. You will live in close community with other volunteers. In addition to the awesome privilege of working in the soil of Israel, on days we are not working in the vineyards or resting you will get to tour. Most tours focus on Biblical sites related to God’s covenants and hearing from Israelis who have devoted their lives to the restoration of the land.
