As many of you know, a few days after this years build, Roy had surgery on his leg to repair some old pins and hardware from an accident years ago. An infection was the greatest danger during his recovery. Tonight he was admitted to the hospital for an infection, fever, chest pains and an elevated heart rate. He may be transported to Springfield to aggressively treat the infection. Please join us in praying for God to remove this infection, and for the entire Day family as they cope with this stress during Christmas. We appreciate your prayer, and trust that the Lord will lay His righteous healing hand on our beloved brother.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” — Isaiah 41:10
‘Twas the day before siding the volunteers grunt, every servant was stirring except Brad Hunt. The soffit was hung by Hucke with care, in hopes that a siding crew would soon be there. Brad was nestled all snug in his truck, with visions of chocolate ice cream seeping from the ducts. Roy in his overalls and I in my beard, had just settled our brains after talking to Markie who’s weird. When out of the house arose such a clatter, I sprang from my car to see what’s a matter. When what to my wondering eye did appear, George Link and his coffee all over Stokke’s gear. They wrestled around like Tyson and Jones, while the others stood recording on their smart phones. This build is not perfect, nor the volunteers who work, but one thing is certain, here the Holy Spirit lurks. Merry Christmas from Hamburg!
There are several moving parts on a construction build, and this year is no exception. Delays can happen, and we try to plan for these potential delays as much as possible. We are certain we need plenty of help through Wednesday, but if you’re planning on coming after that day, we’d ask that you reach out before you travel to make sure we aren’t on hold waiting for inspections. The last thing we want is for a willing person or group to travel 5+ hours only to be told that the job is on hold. We could really use your help, so please plan on coming, but call or text me (Ryan) at (309)299-7926 before you leave to assure that the project is moving forward as expected. I will also give updates on this blog and on Facebook, but it’s always a good idea to call before you travel.
Perhaps more importantly, please pray that delays will not hinder our progress in Hamburg.
See you all very soon!
15 minutes to go time! When you enter into the OFOP auction you’ll need to click on “enter live auction” to see the live calling.
