WE DID IT!
We had our first Sunday in the new building.
The whole thing came together on Saturday and we just stood amazed at what God had done with a few volunteers that were very unskilled! To think that we have come this far with the aid of God and He gave us beyond our expectations is amazing to us.
I hope to have some pictures soon that I can share with you. Our dedication ceremony will be in September and we're going to make a powerpoint presentation.
Yesterday we cleaned out our old building and it was very sad. When the Spirit leaves something, you can see how soon it shows. The building is so small now, and deteriorating fast. God moved.
My husband has taken a Bible to work so that he can read when he has down time. Truly amazing. We tag teamed his brother on Sunday. He's ready for the Kingdom. His father is in such poor strength that I'm hoping he'll be able to make it to a service at our new church. He loves music.
Today I start back to work. My pastor says that this will be a regular work week. No extra messy stuff, just back to what we're there for. I can't wait.
For the last couple of weeks I couldn't even wear good clothes to work. So I checked my closet and had to iron tons of slacks and tops in preparation. It feels good to wear nice clothes again.
Tonight we're jammin'. I expect some extras to come. That'll be fun.
Oh and lift up my friend's son. He went to Pittsburgh yesterday to a headache clinic. He's in his mid 30's and had a neck operation last December. Since then he's had excruciating pain, can't look into any type of light and is border-line suicidal with this pain. Pray for him that this clinic has the answer for him. He's lost his job and insurance and is having a hard time getting medicaid to cover his medical expenses. So sad.
This clinic helped my father-in-law with 'tic delareaux'. He struggled with pain for 15 years, found this clinic. They found the nerve behind his ear that was being pinched, covered it with teflon and he was cured! He could eat like a normal person again, let the wind blow on his face and enjoy life.
Thank God that He gives the wisdom and knowledge. We just need to persevere and search for His answer.
Bye for now and have a blessed day!
