MARMADUKE, AR (KAIT)- Marmaduke First Baptist Church had an open house Saturday for the home they built for a member of the congregation.
The project began a year ago when the pastor was visiting a member of his church and noticed her home was in desperate need of repair.This is a prime example of practicing what you preach. The church saw a need and decided to do something about it.
"I said 'why me' and he said Joan because you deserve it and I said why," said Joan Cudd. "I was just amazed, it's so pretty, everything matches and everything is marvelous."
Pastor Kim Bridges made a visit to Cudd's old home and knew something had to be done. The floor had fallen in and there were multiple leaks in the ceiling.
