Thanks to the Immanuel Baptist Church and Marketing Research Education Foundation Mission Teams*, Mr. Phillip has a new and safer home!
Mr. Phillip is one of our Haitian friends that was in great need of a better living situation. He was living on the TJS land way before we gained ownership in June 2015. We did not want Mr. Phillip to move so instead, we offered him a paid position with TJS to watch over the property, and he does an excellent job.
However, his previous home (see pictures below) was not very safe. It was impacted by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, and was beginning to crumble.
Thankfully, our TJS Mission Teams showed up ready and willing to help! Together — Immanuel Baptist Church and MREF— funded and built a new house for Mr. Phillip. We’d also like to thank the Cumberland University team for painting his house.
