Video: “Eight Days Of Hope” Coming To Tupelo In July
TUPELO, MISS. (WCBI) – A ministry that rebuilds homes after natural disasters will focus on the northeast Mississippi area this summer.
Representatives of “Eight Days of Hope” announced that they will organize an effort with 2,500 volunteers to rebuild homes lost during last month’s tornado.
The effort will take place the week of July 12th and will utilize volunteers from more than 40 states. The volunteers will stay in local churches and they will work in areas impacted by the tornadoes.
The Tupelo area effort will cost about half a million dollars, but organizers say they’ve never come up short.
“You know it’s amazing, we’ve done $18 million of work, we are all volunteers and God has provided all 18 million dollars so , of materials and labor, and we trust in Him, lean on Him. This is not about Eight Days of Hope, not about Steve Tybor, not about Tupelo, it’s about God’s army coming from around the country to share a glimpse of His Son, Jesus.”
Eight Days of Hope will also need locals to volunteer. For information on how to do that, go to www.eightdaysofhope.com.
