Operation Magic Carpet Ride

Maranatha Class, Boston Avenue Youth, and friends

“Operation Magic Carpet Ride”–by Jim Embrey

On June 30 the Maranatha and Boston Avenue Youth group ‘swept’ into Paul Staat’s home and within 2 1/2 hours moved/relocated furniture from three rooms, pulled up carpet, carpet padding, tack strips and about 5,000 nails/tacks/staples, swept, vacuumed, wet mopped and then moved/relocated furniture back into their respective rooms. This mission was needed to help Paul Staat’s eventual recovering after taking medications that can reduce his immune system. The carpet removal was needed due to the fact carpets and rugs tend to harbor pollens and other irritants that could affect Paul and his recuperation from the medications. As usual the “Alpha Team” (Maranatha) coupled with the B.A. Youth group worked well together and accomplished the job efficiently, neatly, safely and well ahead of schedule. Just another testimony to the ‘Spirit’ that resides in us all and how we utilize it in magnifying Christ’s good works.

A message from Jim Embrey



A reminder that if you get a chance this weekend go by Floral Haven (Tulsa) main office (west side/outside) to see our SWR-OK-151 CAP unit perform the ceremony for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It will be happening Saturday thru Monday (I have the midnight to 0600 Sunday shift!, so I might not see ya), it will only take you less than 30 minutes’ish.

Sam isn’t on this team, still working his way up to get there, however he is on Color Guard and is performing “flag patrol” through out the cemetery. There are thousands of flags, one for each Warrior, along with a dog tag for each flag pole. I send some pic’s post this event.

Have a great and safe weekend,

Jim, Julee and Sam Embrey
