During the show we heard a couple of songs from the Band Wagon and interviewed Josh & Pam Ray from the band.
We also interviewed Jason Quintrell, CEO & President of Union Mission and Tim McDaniel of SERVPRO.
Jason discussed the scope of the Union Mission work. They are a ready force and an active hand of help to the needy of West Virginia. Their mission is “helping hurting people in Jesus’ name,” and as such, we unabashedly share the gospel of Jesus Christ even as we minister to the physical needs of the downtrodden. They have seen God work in amazing ways through our various ministries to improve lives and draw people closer to Him. All over the state of WV, the Union Mission has gained a reputation of being there for those who have nowhere to turn.
He also talked about their upcoming event in conjunction with the Moses Auto Live on the Levee. On August 31, 2018 the Union Mission and SERVPRO are teaming up and participating in the International Drug Overdose Awareness Day. During the final Live of the Levee of the 15th season, Union Mission will be on hand to heighten awareness and educate folks about drug addiction and the hope & help they provide.
Tim says that SERVPRO is proud to support Union Mission in their ongoing effort to combat this drug epidemic.
