Emmanuel Home of Protection

June Team Visit

In June of 2012, we hosted our first team at the Emmanuel Home.  We have had other teams come by for a few hours and do activities, but this was the first team to come and spend an entire week with us.  There were 12 team members from Rye Creek Baptist Church of Ft. Smith, AR who arrived on June 19th.  The team had been scheduled for a couple of months, but little did we know that God would send us 15 kids with special needs to be there during the same week. 

The team was an incredible help to us as they arrived at the Home each morning at 6:00am to help bathe and feed these kids.  Many on the team also spent the mornings helping us paint both inside and out and did games and crafts with our kids in the afternoons.  Each evening ended with a devotion time followed by singing, playing and fun.  One night many of our young ladies made decisions to trust in Christ for their salvation. 

God sent an amazing group of people to help us in our hour of need.  We were so blessed by their hard work and love for the Lord.

April 2013 Team Visit

In April the Glenn Howell construction team came from Magee, MS and the surrounding area to help out with various projects at the Home.  The main project was finishing out a new addition to our school building.  We added two new rooms onto the facility almost doubling its size.  The team put on the roof, built some dividing walls and wired it for electricity.  This new addition will be a great help to our teachers and allow them to give classes to our students without getting wet when it rains.

Another part of the group worked on carpentry projects within the Home.  They work on redesigning and refinishing the wardrobes from the girls’ rooms and built cabinets and desks. 

A group of ladies also participated in caring for babies, doing devotionals with the girls and sewing curtains.  They also helped with the refinishing work.

We had a great time and they accomplished an incredible amount of work in just one week.  Thanks to all of you who came.
