NOMADS received some lovely comments this period, for their service at partnering United Methodist agencies: From Page Community UMC in Page, Arizona - "The work was done quickly and was done well.

Our period 4 ended on March 28th, and some of our Hosts have responded by evaluating their projects for us. We had a lovely comment from the Vashti Center in Thomasville, GA "It is always unbelievable how much work the NOMADS get done while they are here. They work in all the buildings on our campus - quietly & diligently. What a reflection of Christ's love."

Notice to NOMADS looking for an interesting project for early summer. We have a brand new agency in Illinois which is in danger of being canceled for Period 8, June 3-20, 2013. The agency is Wesley Village, a Retirement Community in Macomb located in west-central Illinois. They are building a 4000 sq. ft. Community Center on their property, and have asked for NOMADS help to finish the interior of the building. If you are some of the NOMADS looking for new construction for a change, this is ...
NOMADS can still join teams for period 4, at locations with leadership and openings: at Vashti Center in Thomasville, GA. And at Community of Hope in Moss Point, MS we have NOMADS going in more of a drop-in arrangement. Please login and sign up if you can help out!
