Who's My Neighbor

"Who Is My Nieghbor" was created by the Jubilee Project, Inc. and the Bethlehem Center after Brian met Marta and Rhonda of the Jubilee Center at a mission conference at Ooltewah United Methodist Church.
"I was seeing what they do up there and the needs that need to be met in the community they live in", says Brian, "and I asked, 'how can we be of service to each other.'"
They drew on Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37, and Marta was blessed to find a grant to fund the program.
Bethlehem Center students took the first trip, visiting Sneedville, TN.
The students worked on an old gym that is being remodeled so that other volunteers can visit.
They also spent time talking about life in Sneedville and Chattanooga, and spent time learning about God together.
"We got to know one another to see what they go through on a day-to-day basis, not only in their community, but also in our community,".
The Bethlehem Center and Jubilee Project, Inc. hope to continue the project next year.
They are praying for the project to become a four-day trip, and ask for your prayers as well.
"They were so amazed at what we do, and we're amazed at what they do in that small town," says. Brian.
