The Work Has Begun!

This piece of land doesn't look like much right now it just looks like rocks and desert. However, this place has a bright future. It's right in the middle of an area that is being devoloped. Lots of new houses are going up and big plans are in the making. Right now we are the only church in this area. Today we set the posts for our church building. It was sooo exciting!! The people attending this church are very poor. There may be one adult who knows how to read and write. But these guys know how to work! They are donating all their time and work for this church. They worked hard all day long. We had to pick holes for the posts out of the rock. These guys are experts when it comes to rock and cement. But, it was hilarious to watch them use my electric saw. It was a foreign object to them. They only have hand saws. Several of them took turns cutting the beams and the whole time they would yell instructions to each other as to how they should cut the wood. haha.
We finished setting all the posts, and on Thursday we are going to set the rafters and start working on the roof. Pray for this new ministry and for this project!

Your new church project is SO exciting! It is great that God's work is moving forward, especially when the people are carrying the responsiblity and raising their own money. Br. Mowery will be proud.

I just don't have the words to express how I feel right now. God is so good. I just can't wait to see what God will do next. Thank the Lord for all of His blessings.
