Next Hurricane Relief Trip

February 9-12, 2018


We continue to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey with monthly relief trips to help with the rebuilding efforts. Our next trip will leave from St. John at 8 am on Friday, February 9th and return on the 12th.


If you would like to volunteer, please email Chris Knippa at chris@kineticoSA.com or Lance Folkerts at lance@ltfconstruction.com


We continue to work on roof replacements, decking, fence repair and home repairs. Our many volunteers work tirelessly and we thank all those that offer their time, talents, and muscle so that we can continue to help our neighbors in need.

“What a great weekend and fellowship!  The Team, Michael and Janine Schuchardt, Scott and RJ Rutherford, and Chris Knippa, they “got er done”, We had a big day on Saturday, getting the main roof of Norma’s house torn off and papered back over.  Sunday was a day of replacing a bunch of bad fascia and a section of overhang. The main section of roof is ready for a little roof edge and shingles and we have a couple of little roofs to tear off but that won’t take long.  Michael worked on the interior fixing some sheetrock that had fallen and tweaked a door to try to get it to work, (it’s going to have to be replaced).  He also got the refrigerator leveled up.  We have the place good enough for Norma to be able to move in the first of December and that was the goal.”

“Sweet Norma Flores had tears of joy as she praised God and expressed her sincere appreciation to SJLC for taking the time to care for her during her time of great need. She’s so excited to be able to move back home with her beloved dogs. What a blessed weekend it was!”
