help a Veteran, grab a chainsaw

The Torres Family needs our help and prayers.  Their property in Ellerslie Place was an impact point for the tornado that came through.

We will have folks out there this Saturday to serve but if you or somebody you know can come for even an hour or two to help it would be greatly appreciated.  Ken Himes will also be out there this Friday around noon if you want to help on Friday.

We have people running chainsaws and need other folks to pull limbs away as they are cut and drag and stack them in burn piles.

Gloves and boots and long sleeves are encouraged.  Please prayerfully consider sharing this with folks you know who might help us help them.

Cesar Torres is an Iraqi War Veteran and had to leave yesterday to lead some training at Ft. Hood, TX.  His wife (Alba) and teenage son (Joel) are here without him and we promised him we’d stand in the gap and stay with them until we got their property squared away.

Directions:

Take US 27 (Manchester Expressway) to Ellerslie and then 315 toward Talbotton (First light after 4 lanes become 2 lanes).  About a mile up on the left is Ellerslie Place – take the second entrance

Take a left on Ossahatchie and go up past the mailbox marked as 1352 Ossahatchie turn left just past that (The street sign is missing).

Go down a block and the next left is Bent Tree Drive and the house is on the left. #104 Bent Tree Drive.  The Torres Family.

We start at 9:00 on Saturday. Come when you can leave when you have to.
