Monday - Work Day Five

At our morning devotions before heading to the job site, we were encouraged to remember three things. First, no matter where we are, God is there.  Next, we should make him Lord of all the work in front of us, no matter how mundane Finally, we should speak to God continually throughout the day.

After loading lumber, tin, paint, and other supplies on the truck, we headed down the street to the house.  Several people started on the roof, and everyone else grabbed a paint brush or roller and got to work.  Rafters were placed on top of the walls, and the rebar sticking out of the supporting posts was bent around them to hold them in place. Sheets of tin were cut to size and screwed to the rafters. 

At the same time, the interior and exterior of the house was being painted; four or five coats in all, and windows were being hung. We had to be careful not to get in each other's way, but by the end of the day, we were almost finished; all that remains is a little bit of painting and to hang the doors. We were also glad for the chance to meet the woman who will be moving into the house.

As always, we are thankful for your prayers. It has been a good week, and tomorrow, our final day here, we look forward to finishing and then dedicating the house.
