Work Day & Bountiful Harvest

Recently, our church was able to purchase the  building where we meet & the parsonage.  The parsonage had been rented out & needed some repairs.  We pulled up the carpet to find hard woods under half of the living space.  What a blessing to know we won’t have to put carpet or laminate back down!  The floors need work, but we a praying it won’t be tooo tooo bad!   Here are some before pics…

The house will be spit in half, with half of it prophets chambers and the other living quarters for the Francis’.  They are missionaries going out from Lighthouse to her native country Taiwan!   They will be starting deputation in the near future.   We are excited to see them doing what the Lord has called them to do, although I get weepy just thinking about them leaving!

This will be their part of the the house…

While we were working inside, some of the men were outside working on some trees in the front yard.  Some had been damaged in the storms we had earlier this year, and one was wreaking havoc with the foundation of the house.

Poor David got stuck in the bucket when the motor in the truck cut off.   Good thing he isn’t afraid of heights.

We got a lot done thanks to a lot of help.

Sunday after church they surprised us with a pounding.  Our church is one of the most giving ones I’ve seen.  They go above and beyond in their giving.  Most of our men in the church are self employed, and haven’t had much work lately.  Bryan and I know they are having it rough right now, but they still give to our family.  I personally love it when they give us a pounding!  It stocks my pantry, and they usually give us stuff I don’t usually buy! Such a blessing!
