Project Update

Our MSM Board Has approved our participation in a home repair project that falls outside our Human Services Dept. referral system. Here is a brief background:

A group of approximately 6 businesses and several churches asked MSM if we could help them  assist a young mother and her two children as part of a community effort.

Eric Lendrum, his wife Abby and their children moved into a home at 182 Glenview Ave in Oil City that needed some updating which Eric planned to do himself. But after a courageous battle with cancer, Eric died at age 27 on Feb. 9, 2019.

Chad Snyder of Snyder Electric has agreed to lead professional trades and volunteers in making sure Abby’s home is safe, warm, and dry.

Although work is not yet scheduled to begin, we wanted to give you a heads up on the project and pray that you can help this family get a hot water tank and a furnace installed and badly needed updates to their kitchen and bath areas.

You will love this family and your reward will be eternal. Watch for updates as work is scheduled.

Yours in Christ,

Paul and Ross
