The SOWER VIM Team is in the planning stages for constructing their 20th home in 2019. In 2016, a 28x28 two-bedroom home cost approximately $48,000. The SOWER VIM Leadership Team is requesting that the churches of West Ohio prayerfully consider supporting this worthwhile project in Southeastern Kentucky financially with a pledge of support as well as providing volunteers to do the actual construction. Those that have served on SOWER work teams comment that, while they have helped a family by serving, they gained much more from the interaction and relationships with the family and fellow team members. West Ohio Conference churches are invited to participate in this rewarding project with your prayers, your volunteer labor, and your financial support.
This is week #3 of 6 work weeks for the house construction; the insulation, drywall and siding will be completed during this week. The additional weeks are July 14-20, August 11-17, and August 18-24 in 2019. More information is in the SOWER 2019 Brochure. While there is no requirement for volunteers to contribute to the cost of materials, it is suggested that each volunteer or their church contribute $500 to $750 toward the cost of materials. Volunteers without materials to work with are not very effective.
