The Waverly home is about to take its shape, for which it will likely stand for many decades. It will be a beautiful home, but the truth is, it’s just wood held together by nails. The real beauty of this project is that it represents the redemption of Christ. A broken community restored by broken men and women who have been restored themselves. Because of the restoration in the lives of those who serve today, tomorrow, and over the next two weeks, physical restoration takes place in Waverly. When the volunteers are all finished, the home will stand as a reminder that no man or woman can be lost beyond repair in the eyes of our Savior. Redemption sure is beautiful.

Day 2

Volunteers of all ages worked on the interior walls and sheeting today. Tomorrow after worship, trusses will go up, and they’ll be ready to roof when the rest of the team arrives on Monday!


We hope you are all having a great Thanksgiving. While most of our volunteers will show up in Waverly Monday, there are a few who will begin framing tomorrow!!!

What an amazing weekend! Between the auction, sponsors, and a fundraiser brunch this morning at the LaHarpe Christian Church, over $30,000 was raised for building materials for our Waverly, Tennessee flood relief build. While all of this was happening, OFOP’s concrete crew began work on the foundation of the home.

There are so many people to thank, it’s impossible to list all of them. To the many who generously donated to, or sponsored the auction, we can’t thank you enough. To all those who bid on, and/or purchased items, you made the night an enjoyable and profitable event for all those watching. To Ashley Johnson, who does the bulk of the auction preparation and bookkeeping on OFOP’s side, thank you for your selfless work behind the curtain. To Jim Sullivan, Karla Sullivan, Scott Steven’s, and the entire Sullivan auctioneers team, every year we are amazed by your generosity and professionalism. To the LaHarpe Christian Church family, thank you for your heart for this ministry, for the time you allowed us to share today during the service, and for all the hard work that was put into making todays brunch an overwhelming success.

These last 24 hours are proof that the body of Christ is diverse in talents, abundant in generosity, and passionately committed to serving those in need. ❤️

Tennessee it is!

ONE FAMILY ONE PURPOSE Disaster Relief has spent the last decade building homes for survivors of natural disasters. Our efforts have always, and will always be focused solely on spreading the love of Christ to communities in need. After a long summer of prayer and pondering, the organization has officially committed to rebuilding for a flood survivor in Waverly, Tennessee later this year. With increased building costs, we need your help more than ever. We are asking those with a heart for serving to consider funding one, five, or even 10 square feet of the home we will build in late November/early December. We are estimating that cost to be $75./sq ft. For those willing to give, or fundraise for at least 10 Sq Ft, we are giving away limited edition “Here I am, Lord. Send Me” hooded sweatshirts at no cost. Just find 10 donors to give $75, to help our effort, and you’ll get one of these great sweatshirts. All donations are tax deductible, and can easily be made through our “get involved” tab on our website linked below. We sincerely thank you for your generous consideration, and look forward to sharing more details about our project in Tennessee in the coming days and weeks! If you’d like more information to help fundraise, please send emails to

Stay tuned for more information to come! If you’d like to make a tax deductible donation now, use this link to our secure online payment method!
