Congratulations to Texas Baptists Shalom Builders


Thank You Texas Baptists Shalom Builders. Several of the homes in West that were adopted by the Shalom Builders are almost done and are in the final stages of being completed. Homes located at 1506 Regan, 409 College, and 1341 Marable are in the home stretch. The families are anxious, excited and almost ready to move in. Home dedications are being planned. Final inspections are taking place and move-in dates are being scheduled.

Some of these families are still in need of appliances and furniture and can be adopted by contacting the TBDR office via the contact information below. Thanks to the Hope Plantation Turf Company which is located in Bonham, Texas, sod has been donated to cover 5 homes in West and will be laid this week.

TBDR is grateful for all of the volunteers who had a hand in helping these home build projects get to the final stage. Over 2,000 Texas Baptist volunteers were involved in the clean-up and demolition phases of the disaster recovery in West. God has been faithful and continues to pour out many blessing on the entire community of West. Praise God for what He has done. TBDR looks forward to celebrating with these and other families as they move back into their homes after such a devastating disaster.

More skilled and experienced volunteers are still needed to assist families in rebuilding their homes, many of which are uninsured or under-insured. TBDR remains in partnership with the Long-term Recovery Team to assist families recover from the disaster which has lasted over a year and a half.

TBDR is calling for skilled and experienced volunteers to join the Shalom Builders Network. Will you join the Shalom Builders Network by registering here to help with the ongoing efforts of rebuilding West and other projects in areas where there has been a disaster?
