Wednesday, our last day…continued…

The floor in Pastor Armando’s new house was finished, and our time there was coming to an end. Here’s some pics of a few of the friends we made during our stay.

The team had pitched in and bought the family a new cabinet and a new kitchen sink. They say a picture can say a THOUSAND WORDS… Their reaction was more than Donna could bare. How’s that for an old sink and then the new one? Big improvement huh…

VBS….Final Day also….. Over TWO HUNDRED came…..FOUR received Christ! Many seeds were planted. God is so good!
We’re done here! Tomorrow we will visit TWO churches in the foot of the mountains!

Thanks again for your prayers!

Monday continued…

We had ordered our tin/steel from a new place, Tres Hermano’s, and for whatever reason they did not have it on the job site as promised. Maressa handled the situation  very well as she was polite but firm about the mistake that they had made. By noon the steel was delivered and the team wasted no time getting the church covered.

The team made much progress despite obstacles common when on mission. Keith and Pat, the lightest and most agile of the gringos, manned the roof from above, while others worked from the ground. As our day came to an end we were two pieces short in finishing the roof. Geeee….Whizz! All in All - It’s been a good FIRST day.

Back at Pastor Armando’s house Tom shovels sand into FIVE gallon buckets preparing for the concrete work there. These pictures also gives you an idea of the living conditions endured by Pastor Armando and his family. The cooking stove in the back ground and closer up (right).

Brandon McLain, West Point Baptist, was a big help and found some way to serve constantly. With Donna in the fore ground this was our break area with Pastor Armando’s house in the back ground. Tony Brawner, First Methodist, Mt. Pleasant, TN, with a new friend.

Pastor’s Armando sharpens a machete behind his house. The only cabinet they owned was this small old green one.

May God bless you,
