Dr. Jo Anne Lyon is the General Superintendent of the Wesleyan Church. In her just-released video update on the activity of the Wesleyan Church, Five Loaf House was featured as an example of the church living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit! This is a great reminder that the work we are doing is more than just doing good deeds; it is a way of spreading the message that all things are made new in Jesus Christ!
We want to express our gratitude to the folks at the Mount Pocono Walmart who came out in the cold to hang drywall at Five Loaf House yesterday. Your help was greatly appreciated!
The next big phase of our construction work is at hand! We'll be getting our first shipment of drywall sometime tomorrow (Wednesday, January 22nd), and we're planning on working every weekday until the drywall is done. We can use LOTS of volunteers, particularly those who have the strength and stamina to work with drywall. It's going to be exciting to see our rooms take shape!
Thanks to WNEP and Raegan Medgie for their great coverage of Five Loaf House last night!
We didn't find out about this story airing until it was too late, but fortunately WBRE has the video available online. As always, we're grateful for their help in spreading the word about the work!
Yesterday was a busy day for news coverage at Five Loaf House! Raegan Medgie stopped by yesterday to do a story on our work, so tune in to channel 16's news today to see the report.
Update: The news report will likely air on Thursday due to other breaking news today.
We just had an interview with Nicole Walters from channel 13 on the latest work at Five Loaf House, so tune in to BRC 13 tonight at 5 and 6 to see their report.
Check out today's Pocono Record for a great article about Five Loaf House!
One small clarification: though the building is named "Five Loaf House," the food pantry will still be known as the "Top of the Mountain Ecumenical Council Food Pantry," since the food pantry will still be administrated by TOMEC.
Calling all volunteers! We just got the word that the work on the roof will begin tomorrow (Thursday, January 9th). We'll have professionals working on the roof itself, but we need lots of volunteers to serve as the ground crews. We can also use help providing lunches for our workers.
At the moment, we're scheduled to work on the roof tomorrow and Friday from 9 am to 2 pm, though the work may continue later depending on how things develop. Let us know if you can help in any way.
Working on the roof will let us move into a new phase of work inside the building, so this is a big step forward!
