The weather has been very hot, but our guys (and girls!) have had such good attitudes in spite of the unpleasant heat. We are grateful for cooler temperatures now for a few days.
We are just finishing up wiring the house; even Anna and Mary are great wire pullers. We hired out the insulation this week, and it’s amazing to walk through the house and not be able to see someone in the next room. This morning was a big turning point – the “rock” (aka sheetrock) was delivered!
We are a little less than two weeks away from leaving on our East Coast trip. Please pray as we begin preparations. Most of the family has been hit with a cold/flu and some have been pretty sick (including Dad). Please pray for them as they recover. We always find the few weeks before a trip are filled with unexpected trials. We feel that there is definite spiritual warfare because Satan tries to deter us from going where Jesus wants us to be!
We have seventeen different cities we’ll be going to. We’re looking forward to meeting many of you.
Only for Jesus,
John working at his first attempt to build a retaining wall. Dad said it turned out great!
Mary working on wiring! 🙂
Anna was insulating pipes.
John, Jesse, and Joseph watching the city putting in a water drainage tube.
Joseph was working on light fixtures for the front of the house.
Jesse, showing the wiring that was done.
Sheetrock coming in through the window!
You might notice the ground looks muddy. We had quite a bit of rain in the night, and then it did rain before the trucks came. Praise the Lord during the time they unloaded sheetrock, it didn’t rain. The rain only began again after they were finished!
