This past weekend, on one of the hottest days of the year, two small groups of guys from our Blount County Campus, the Balser and Langley groups, tore down a rotting porch and rebuilt a new one for a wonderful woman named, Mrs. Russell. The United Way RED program supplied materials for the build and the guys in small group donated their time and labor. They put up a tent, brought a big fan, and lots of  water to get the job done. Check out the missions Facebook page for more photos from their day of serving. Got a cool serving story to share? We’d love to hear it. Email missions@faithpromise.org. read more

“These are the days of great triumph”

Today is my third Monday in Monterey, Mexico. When I think back on my past two mission trips to this amazing place I see how much God has changed in my life… Growing up I didn’t have a father, and my mother was always working to support myself and my two older siblings. There was no real connection there, and I learned that the best way to deal with emotions and problems was to internalize them, because nobody cared/ did anything about it. I’ll come back to this thought later on… When you come to Monterey they give you lessons on Trauma Competent Care, or TCC, to help you deal with children dealing with abuse or neglect. In these lessons they teach that the best way for these children who have emotional and social problems to heal is through forming a relationship with somebody they can love or trust, somebody who cares about them. Just like me a lot of these children didn’t have a father growing up, and if they did he was a negative presence in their life. Nobody has spoken into these children and told them that they are loved, they have a purpose and that they have a father who loves them no matter what! read more
