Gethsemane Missionary Baptist delivers water to Flint, Michigan residents

Submitted

What an exciting and blessed experience we had delivering water to Metropolitan Baptist Church in Flint, Michigan for residents affected by the contaminated water situation.

As this project bloomed with the help of our church family, Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church at 719 S. Caldwell St., under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. C.L. Phelps, our vision became a reality on Saturday, June 25, 2016.

The U-Haul was loaded with more than 800 cases of water on Thursday evening prior to our trip on Friday, June 24. Water was donated by local churches as well as Niagara Water Company of Mooresville. Gethsemane members donated water and the church provided financial support as well.

When we arrived at Metropolitan Baptist Church we were greeted with prayer by Deacon Mabry. We then were stationed at Great Giant Superette where water was given to all who pulled up.

As we loaded the cars our hearts were overjoyed by the many people we were able to serve.

Gethsemane youth did an extraordinary job unloading the water from the truck and loading the water into the cars of those who stopped by.

As our day wound down, some shared praise reports of what a blessing it was to be a blessing to someone else. Doing God’s work is truly rewarding as we are the only hands, feet, eyes and ears He has on earth.

It is up to each of us to put HIS words into action and our mission trip certainly proved to be just that.
