Prayers needed

We’ve just received word that a missionary friend is in need of prayer. Many OFOP volunteers have served in Mexico alongside one of God’s servants named “Gator.” Today, Gator fell off scaffolding while working in the mountains in Mexico. Please join us in prayer for our brother.

CAN IT REALLY BE THE END?

It’s really hard to say goodbye, but that time is near. The house will likely be finished later tonight, and the keys will be handed over tomorrow at 10am (or noon if we need a little extra time). The Lord has focused our minds this year on restoration. The lives of the volunteers serving are examples of the most grand restoration–restoration by the blood of Jesus. We may never fully comprehend what all he’s done here in Hamburg during the days and Shenandoah during the evenings, but we know He has done plenty, and we thank Him for letting us witness it. Thank you Jesus.

We’ll post pictures of the complete home tomorrow following the 10am dedication.

Friday update

The volunteers have made great progress. Today they continued to side and hang drywall. The first layer of mud is going on now, and another half day of siding should wrap up the exterior. Have I mentioned that renovations take time? It’s a lengthy process, but the volunteers continue to smile and praise Jesus for the renovation that has happened in their own lives. It’s a pleasure to serve a loving God.

Oh and it was also laundry day for the volunteers who have been here for a week. 😬😷
