The Lord was a carpenter....

Well, the Lord was a carpenter and so he understands physical work to make something beautiful. We have put in a lot of hours this week on the property. It's fun to see our church family take their weekly walk into the back of the church to see the sanctuary progress. That isn't the only thing that is fun. We have a new family attending and a newlly saved young man. That's tremendous and we say,"Thank you Lord!"

I preached this morning on our series, "Thou art worthy, O Lord." This morning was, "Worthy of Faithful Followers" from John 21. Jesus met his men at the Sea of Galilee and gave them their individual orders of "Follow Me."

Tonight, the sound engineer from England will be up for our evening service... hopefully, he'll make it on time. He has a long drive ahead of him after departing just now after their morning service. Please pray for wisdom as we make decisions on sound equipment and set up.

Katie is getting around much better and the swelling is going down after her fall just over a week ago. Thank you for praying. She feels like she has been demoted as she stays off ladders and sits on the floor to paint the trim. :) All of our family has been working hard on the project. I'm thankful that God has given us a good work crew in that way.

Lord willing, we will be putting up the front wall decoration and doing trim in the hallway and creche (nursery) this week. Your continued prayers for the building project are much appreciated.

PS. The pics just show the trim painted, walls filled/sanded and painted, door painted, etc. Before and afters would probably help you identify our progress.
