The women didn’t kill me after all!

When we began our construction at our church in Cissin we had to dig the foundation. I felt it was best for the members to dig it together. Most of the time the men dug while the women moved the dirt outside of our church property. Well, we finished the foundation. I asked the women to forgive me and not hurt me because all of the dirt that we moved outside now needed to come back inside. Once more, we have had many women and men show up to help with the work. We have had to move the dirt with wheelbarows and shovels. It’s not easy work, but it brings great unity and makes the people a part of the work. We started yesterday and will need to work for a few more days before this stage is completed.Moving Dirt

    With all the digging ya’ll have been helping with, makes me wish we’d followed thru on somebody’s idea of digging for a swimming pool in our backyard. I believe they could have done it!
    (Wonder if they are still intersted?)

    Praying for you and your work
