I talk a lot about the progress on the house, but I want to take a second to celebrate what happens after dark at our post-dinner discussions. Devotion time is always a very special time for us, but this year I’ve asked a few Godly men to share their testimonies (one each night) about how the Lord has brought them to where they are now, and how He continues to work in their lives. Last night was our first testimony, and if it’s any indication of how the evenings are going to go, we are in store for some powerful nights.
As I was typing this message a young man with construction experience named Dan pulled up and introduced himself to me, and told me he’s here until Friday to help out in whatever way he can be used. God has done some amazing things in the last 12 hours. Not only did Dan show up, but we also received word from about six others in all, who have decided to come in tonight and tomorrow to help for the next few days. I can’t even explain how perfect this timing was. Just as we prepare for siding and dry wall to kick off tomorrow, seven willing men respond to their God-given desire to serve. Thank you God for your perfect plan. Thank you for allowing us all to take part.
