I am eternally grateful to Pastor Gene and his crew, words cannot express! As a widow I am on a fixed income and simply could not afford the clean-up I needed to have done. Hope Mission is such a blessing to our community to come out and work together so seamlessly and tirelessly as they cleaned the downed trees and debris from my yard. I am grateful, just so eternally grateful.

There are no words to describe my heart felt gratitude for Hope Mission Volunteers. Looking at the property after the hurricane was devastating to my heart, my soul. Recalling memories of a hard working mother who tilled and spread grass seeds and plant trees nearly 40 years ago.

Watching as those trees slammed against a small cottage (one of the last my grandfather built) and seeing it fall, praying every second that the tree laying across the cottage would not totally destroy it. Yes, there were many folks less fortunate than myself. But in my world, this was devastating, not only to me, but to my mother as well.

I knew there would be no way that my husband could cut trees down as he is an amputee. I was lost, lost with very little hope of how to fix things. Then I saw the Hope Mission van. My knees buckled and tears began to flow. It was really something to see all those people that volunteered to come out and help us!

They cut down and removed the tree that had slammed the cottage and then they toted everything to the front ditch. As I pulled myself together just enough to hit the “Mother Barnhill” button on my phone I cried even more. As she answered the phone, I said sobbing “Momma, they came and got the trees removed. Everything is ok. It did not make it all the way thru.” Momma began to ask who had been there, i said Hope Mission. I listened as my mother cried across the phone. She had been so strong thru all of the weather but she finally broke. All she could do was say “Praise God, Praise God, thank you Lord for the people at that mission. Praise your name Father” It took a good while before I could hang up. See most don’t know but my mother had been hospitalized just this past Easter day. She actually died that day, but the doctors were able to get her heart started again and put her on support. So this was definitely a GOD send from Hope Mission.

I could not speak to thank all these wonderful people, all I could do was hug and cry… Thank you all from the depths of my heart and my mothers….GOD BLESS each of you

Please give whatever you can!

Amazing what eight men and one woman in recovery can do together by being known as “God’s A Team” when disaster occurs.

Hurricane Florence left trees on our house from our neighbor’s yard and our trees on another neighbor’s garage plus thirty cedar trees lining our property line.  This massive disaster provided the Hope Mission A Team, teamwork, commitment, dedication by removing together the mighty destruction God had left behind in Hurricane Florence’s path.  One of the men shared “Our life is like these trees once standing tall but now bent.  God will plant new trees and I pray God will help of us in recovery begin a new life.”

To the Hope Mission A Team and those who support them, God’s Blessings.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the Hope Mission volunteers for cleaning up the yard after Hurricane Florence. The clean up crew were so quick and efficient, and we were so appreciative of all the hard work.

Testimonial – I didn’t really know where to turn and someone suggested Hope Mission. I went to see them, and Gene talked with me and they responded so quickly to get tarps on my roof and take care of cleaning the yard debris and a downed tree. I am so grateful they were so willing to help.

We want to thank Pastor Gene and the Hope Mission “Rescue Team,”  They came into our yard and cleaned up fallen trees, limbs, and other debris from Hurricane Florence.  They performed a miracle!  What would have taken us weeks, they did in just couple of hours. We can’t thank you enough🙏!

We were abundantly blessed after the hurricane by Pastor Gene and the Hope Mission volunteer crew when they unexpectantly showed up and began cleaning our yard. I did not have the ability to do the work because of my handicap and this was an act of grace. We are so grateful for the help received.

We would like to thank Hope Mission of Carteret County for all of the help that they have given us during this trying time. Gene and his crew worked tirelessly for the past two days removing downed trees, limbs and debris. Thank you to all of the men and women. We could not have done what they did!
