The Lexington Church of Christ ramp building team provided a safe way for Ms. L. to come in and out of her home by removing her old ramp and building a ramp that is sturdy and set at the correct angle.
Ms. L. sent a lovely note to the team stating "So kind, professional and generous. Thank you for allowing me to safely enter and exit our home with an ADA compliant ramp!" 🥰😇
The good work by the Kittiwake Baptist Church ramp building team allows Ms. C. to enter and exit her home on a stable ramp instead of the piece of plywood used previously.

Everyday in His service is a good day, but the Lord often makes days perfect for Mt. Horeb UMC's ramp team. Such was the case when He performed one of His "little miracles" for Mr. G. The weather was great, the volunteers enthusiastic; and, we pray, the results worthy of His approval.
EmmanuWheel received a wonderful note from Mr. G's son stating "I can't thank you and the rest of the crew for the work you guys did. It turned out better than we even expected. You guys have been a true blessing to our family. Thank you for everything, I know it was a lot of work."

Eph 2:8-10 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Volunteers from Mt. Horeb UMC's ramp team completed a ramp for Ms. R. and her mother. To work His "little miracle", the Lord blessed the team with a beautiful Carolina summer day in early fall. Who says He doesn't have a sense of humor?

Sixteen dedicated Mt. Horeb UMC volunteers showed up on a hot and humid day to complete a ramp for Mrs. S! Psalm 90:17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.
God's grace - no rain, cloud cover, and a cooling breeze permitted the Mt. Horeb UMC team to complete Ms. M.'s ramp. A great lunch by John was a big help as well! Ms. M. was thankful that she would be able to get out into her yard once again - something she's not been able to enjoy in a long time.
Acts 20: By this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”

We would like to thank our friend, brother in Christ, and team leader, Ken Bickel for 6 years of service to EmmanuWheel. He helped lead the Mt. Horeb UMC team through some tough times after the passing of team leader, Ed Hartung. He looked to the vast ocean of talent, interest, and dedication within Mt. Horeb community and did whatever he could to ensure that the success of the team continued. Under his leadership, this team has become EmmanuWheel's most successful and prolific team. Ken captured the essence of this ministry, extending it to well beyond the need for a wheel chair ramp. He knows his clients. He loves his clients. He brings his clients Thanksgiving meals. He makes sure that his clients have a Christmas to celebrate.
WE wish him all the best in Greenville, SC. and look forward to staying in touch...
