Missionary House for Those Who Serve


Tennessee WMU is pleased to move ahead with the construction phase of the Missionary House.  Other in-kind donations that have been committed include framing, plumbing, tile work, roofing, and miscellaneous labor. Please complete an in-kind commitment form to donate labor, construction materials or funds for furnishings. All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older and complete a volunteer form before working on the house.

The Missionary House Task Force wants to thank everyone for contributing cash and in-kind gifts that put us OVER THE TOP of the $300,000 goal. Funds are still needed to furnish the house and to establish the endowment fund for the future maintenance of the house. Individual and groups are encouraged to volunteer time to build the house. Any volunteer labor will save funds which can go toward furnishings and the endowment. To volunteer, please call the TN WMU office 800-558-2090 extension 2038. Watch this website for dates that volunteers will be needed with various skills.

Please be praying for the construction of the house and for Kenny Johnson and other workers involved. Right now Epic Building and Design are putting in the construction driveway and the silk fence in order to get the inspection on the septic, then the excavation will begin so Kenny is estimating about 3 weeks from today the project should be in order to begin framing. I am praying the Morristown crew will be available to frame our house! We need other volunteers to step forward to assist us. Tawana Flatt is coordinating all this so lift up Tawana in this endeavor. As we have said all along, this is a God-sized task! The house will progress and get completed on His time table; not ours!

Thanks for all your support as we have raised funds, recruited in-kind gifts and volunteers. This is an awesome time for the Tennessee WMU family. May we share the story of Jesus across Tennessee as we go and make a difference each day!

“For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” Hebrews 3:4
