Mission Minded Methodists laboring on weekends to replace roofs in collaboration with the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference
North Texas United Methodists with a heart for mission and an emphasis on replacing storm-damaged roofs. L4N facilitates purposeful, impactful, and inexpensive weekend mission trips for men and women since 2005. Responding to an early December plea from Sabine Pass UMC to replace the roof on their fellowship hall before Christmas, over thirty youth and parents of youth made a weekend trip to the Texas Gulf coast and completed the mission. Their resounding success prompted the group to share that experience by focusing on Spirit-filled mission experiences with a "no excuse" weekend trip at an affordable cost. Long after the news media left, L4N responded to mission opportunities along the Texas Gulf Coast brought about by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008. L4N was incorporated as a non-profit in 2007 and received its 501(c)(3) status that year. Removing and replacing a roof in one day is our tradition. Few mission teams of inexperienced workers are able to do the same. Yet, many individuals and churches in Texas’ Gulf Coast area, and now in storm-ravaged Central Oklahoma, have been the beneficiaries of our teams’ enthusiasm and diligence.
