Unit #3 is almost completed! It’s been a long haul, but we’re down to the end. In fact, as I’m writing this, Brian is working on clearing out his tools and doing the heavy cleaning before I can go up this afternoon and do the rest of the cleaning, making beds, and organizing the shelves and kitchen. Brian ran into all sorts of problems this week with the pipes, the tile, leaky faucets… he made more runs to the store (half hour one way) than he cares to admit. But, the bathroom finally looks modern, functions (that’s always a plus), and the work is paying off. We welcome back on Wednesday a family who’s been in the Far East for the past two years. They lived in this house right before heading to the field; they won’t recognize it when they get back ‘home’ next week!
This picture is already dated. The new shed is coming along quite well. What’s even better bonus is that Brian hasn’t had to do it alone! One of our board members and a friend of his have come up almost every day to do work on it little by little. They actually are working on the trusses for the roof now! Once Brian is done in Unit #3 he’ll be able to help them more.
I forgot to mention that we had a special Hawaiian night in Kidz Konnect on the 14th. We had an awesome turn-out and the evening was a blast! It’s helped us look forward to the fall again.
Sunday, my dad handed the church over to the capable hands of these three guys. It was time for him to step out of full-time pastoral ministry and let the church continue to move forward under the direction of younger leadership. It was an emotional day watching my dad preach his final sermon. I honestly never thought I’d ever see that day come. But, he’s been wise in his decision to step out while the church is thriving and growing. It’s time for new leadership. Very few are wise enough to know when it’s time to bow out and let someone else take over. It’s yet another reason why I respect him so much.
I’ll get some pics of Unit #3 when it’s all clean so you can see the work! Have an awesome 4th of July.
