Glenn Pollock, David Matchett and Robin Sloss from Northern Ireland boarded an Easyjet flight from Belfast to Manchester on March 5th, 2015. Their destination was One Mission Society’s Head Office to begin much needed painting inside the building. Over the past few years a number of teams have tidied around the outside of this beautiful old house and now it was the opportunity for the inside.
We arrived at Sandileigh Avenue late that Thursday night, had something to eat, spent time chatting and then retired for the evening.
On Friday morning we assessed the work that needed to be completed and began to move things around in preparation. David and myself spent most of the first day sanding down woodwork ready for painting, and Glenn worked on the ceilings and walls.
The day went so fast as we just kept each other going and talked a lot about theology. About 5:30pm, realising we were hungry, we had a walk out to find a fish & chip shop (it was good food!!)
Saturday morning, after praying, we started painting again; we had a target to aim for – the flight back to Northern Ireland at 7pm, so we kept our heads down and the painting went on while also enjoying the fellowship. The paint brushes began to be washed from 3pm onwards and by 4:30pm the house was back to normal.
The smell of new paint filled the air. The landing, stairs and upstairs hall were shining with their new coat.
More maintenance work needs to be carried out around this lovely old house that we call OMS Headquarters in the UK.
Could you spare a day to serve the Lord in this way? Have you a skill or trade? Or are you just willing to serve the Lord in whatever way He can use you?
