Ramp for M. Jacobs in Pembroke NC

Maxton, Nov 1st 2014- When doing mission work you never know what you will find which often makes the task all the more fun. This was the case when members of Shoeheel and New Bethel Holiness Methodist Churches and volunteers from Cyna's 3E a local non-profit arrived at the home of J.C. and Susie Clark in Scotland County early this morning. The weather was cold and windy with sporadic rain most people would have cancelled but we have built twenty ramps in the past few years and have found that God always allows us to get the job done. Pictured above on the left is one of those unexpected tasks that you find Nick and Shania found a small cat with his head stuck in a jar, don't know what he was after but the jar was empty except for his head, cats! After freeing the cat from the jar he was fine and released to go back to doing whatever it is that cat's do. The rescue mission now over the group once again turned its attention to the task at hand replacing an old ramp that was long overdue. Sometimes in mission work it is much better to use brain power over brute force, but never under-estimate the convenience of brute force as Jesse Locklear and Roman Lowry used his four-wheel drive truck to remove the old ramp making the path clear for the construction of a new one. As the job neared completion the weather grew increasingly colder and windier but everyone was warm inside as they reflected on a another job well done.

We would like to thank American Bible Society for their charitable support in spreading the Word of God.

Maxton- On September 6, 2014 members of Shoeheel church finally stopped talking about missions and did some in the form of building a much needed and long overdue wheel chair ramp for long time member Sister Emma Locklear. Mrs. Locklear has been faithful in service to our Lord Jesus Christ and though blind and now suffering from health issues that force her to use a wheel chair she always has something good to say about our Savior. Volunteers from her church family and CYNAS 3E arrived early and took advantage of the umbrella that God had provided in the form of clouds which was so greatly appreciated especially in light of the extremely hot weather of the past several weeks. We would like to thank Armando and Mike Milicia, Clay and Landon Locklear, Mitchell Harris, Harold Jacobs, Glenn Locklear, Josh Locklear, Tim Locklear and Mr. Bracy Scott the elder statesman of the group and project supervisor for making this effort such a success. Upon completion of the ramp everyone moved on over to the Church to participate in a "hot dog" evangelism event sponsored by the church youth.

Fairmont-The over cast skies seemed to be a signal of the rains to come. But for volunteers from God’s Holy Assembly Church, Union Chapel and Shoeheel Holiness Methodists churches it was seen as God providing an umbrella from the recent days of scorching sun and high temperatures. Mr. Tim Locklear Community and Disabilities Services (CADS) coordinator from CYNAS 3E had received another request for assistance to help a family needing a wheelchair ramp to improve their quality of life. True to form when the team arrived the rain stopped and when the project was complete some two hours later the rains returned. Reminding all involved that contrary to popular opinion that God is still in control.

(CADS) Ramp for Maynor June-2013
Pembroke NC- Seeing a need and addressing the same are often two extremes of any given issue and while most people can readily recognize and assess the validity of a need most either lack the ability or the means to address it. Fortunately for the Ceroshie Maynor family, Tim Locklear, coordinator for the Community And Disabilities Service (CADS) program of CYNAS 3E saw the need for a wheelchair ramp and worked to see it come to fruition. In collaboration with Lowe’s Home Improvement who furnished the materials necessary to complete the task along with several volunteers such as Heath Brayboy a community volunteer, Roman Lowry of New Bethel Holiness Methodist Church (Fairmont), Bronnie Scott and Dwayne Lowry of Union Chapel Holiness Methodist Church (Union Chapel) Glonnie Scott of the Mission Church (Maynors’ Center) and Tim Paul Locklear II of the Multitudes Church (Laurinburg) spent a morning measuring, cutting and constructing a wheel chair ramp to help improve the life of Ms. Maynor who had recently broken her hip.
