This posting is a bit later than we normally post. So please forgive me.
Workday number four was extremely productive and we finished off a large area of the church that the church had hoped we would possibly finish during our time here.
Then we were on to working on drop ceilings and drywall in the new classroom area - Areas that the church didn't know if we would get to, but are delighted that we were able to begin.
And not only begin, we were able to finish off the drop ceilings into of the rooms by the time our workday ended yesterday!
Saturday we will work side-by-side with our French brothers and sisters as they lend a hand in seeing their new facility built too. Saturdays are generally the only free day French members of the church have to do construction so much of this week has been just our Woodlands team doing construction with a few other French brothers and sisters being able to lend a hand.
We have also been blessed with the presence of a woman from Germany as well as woman from Russia who were here to lend a hand.
while we look forward to coming home tomorrow, there is a sense in which we wish we could stay and see the project through to completion. Not only to completion, but to be able to see men and women from every tribe and nation worshiping here as well.
you can see in the picture below how very little light we have to work with in this new section.
please continue to pray for us: for strength, energy, graciousness, patience, and to finish strong.
and finally, we can now with truthfulness say that we put blood, sweat, and tears into this project.
Don't worry... everyone's totally fine. Just minor scratches, scrapes, and droplets.
we look forward to joining our US families late tomorrow evening.
