GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) Shelters were full and they had no time to plan, but in nine days, many of them said they’ve experienced a lifestyle change they could have never imagined.For Craig Dunbar, life has done a 180 just in the last week. He shows off his new shoes that he said might not be important to some people, but to him the donated sneakers symbolize hope.”We would walk all the way from the Economy Inn to Rutherford Road to the labor finders and that was just so we could make a few dollars so we could pay for our room every day,” said Dunbar.He and his roommate would get up in the middle of the night to begin their three hour walk. He said you could see his feet through the soles of his shoes, but it’s what had to be done if he wanted a roof over his head.”It’s all we knew at that time, it’s all we could basically afford,” Dunbar said.Even if it meant sleeping next to roaches and mice, but as Dunbar hangs up his donated suits, he’s grateful Nicholtown Missionary Baptist Church and the community were there to help get him back on his feet.”They took us to the job fair and we all got hired on, Dunbar said.Jobs, toiletries, clothes and most importantly three meals a day.
I have recently had the privilege of attending the clergy conference held in Kuujjuaq at the end of April and it was wonderful to meet up again up with Bishop Andrew after more than 30 years!

Also it was great to see Bishop Ben who again, like Andrew, came to know Jesus as his Saviour in Pond Inlet during our ministry there in the 1960’s and 70’s. I was also so glad to meet Bishop Larry for the first time and to share with him in the things of the Lord.

Adrenalin pumping and you just get really excited, so it doesn really matter then, Dureau told Laurence Heinen of Postmedia. Team was just really motivated to come out and win (Monday). That was the key. The other thing you notice is the unusual willingness of athletic directors to lock coaches into long contracts. The theory seems simple enough: Protect your most valuable asset. If you have a coach signed to a long deal, no one can come along and steal him without paying a hefty penalty.
