It has been a while since I posted to the blog, so Hello from Don and LaVon, and here’s a few pictures I took to show you where we are in the process of preparing the Sycamores (Community) Chapel. Keep in mind that it is a work in progress as God provides the funds.
[Hold your cursor over each picture to read a description.]
As you can see, there is still much work to be done, but Dennis has done a great job thus far and Don is helping as much as he can. He’s a great supervisor and he has been preparing some wonderful meals for us!
We are, also, so very appreciative to Chris Kilpatrick for installing a new air conditioner for the sanctuary.
We are rejoicing for funds that have arrived to make the septic system what it needs to be to accommodate the building.
Still to be done:
- Carpet for the fellowship hall.
- New roof.
- Rock for parking lot.
- 8 round folding tables.
- Riding lawn mower. (God has provided someone with tractor and mower, but mowing the property is something Don can do and so the riding lawn mower would allow Don to mow when it’s needed and not have to wait on the nice man.)
Our goal is to be having Sunday morning services by September 15th. Please pray with us for musicians and worship leaders. We know God will provide.
We are excited about the vision God has given us for this area. We are also excited about the new free medical clinic now in operation for two weeks at Onapa Baptist Church, about seven miles from us. There have been two salvations with the doors being open only two evenings. Thursday is the clinic days and we are rejoicing for the people at Onapa Baptist for taking the chaplain training and providing this wonderful space to have this much needed clinic.
Keep us in your prayers!!
