The North Carolina Community: Operation Nineveh (Rocky Mount, North Carolina)

At Hardison & Cochran, we love hearing about the positive that is going on in North Carolina communities. If you check out our Twitter feed, you can see that it is filled with positive stories from around the state. Today, for example, we featured a page from the News & Observer website about youths going above and beyond in the Triangle. We love articles and stories like these, so we figured why not dedicate some blog posts to the subject. Today, we will start our first of many stories of “The North Carolina Community.”

Today’s story comes from Rocky Mount, North Carolina where Operation Nineveh has taken huge strides in the past six months, but still needs some help to transition the vision to a reality. The vision is turning a 7,000 square-foot building on South Church Street into a place where those in need can come for a warm meal, a bed to sleep in and a hot shower.

Article Excerpt:

Work so far has been done with one carpenter and several helpers, who have the desire to assist but not the skills required to renovate an empty 7,000-square-foot building into a place where those in need eventually can come to get a warm meal, a bed to sleep and a hot shower.

Quotes from Article:

“We just need people to come down here and catch the vision. Once you come down here, and see what you can do to change lives – that’s what I mean by catching the vision.”

– Tommy Ivey, pastor of New Life Full Gospel Church in Rocky Mount.
