This is the house we built for Rubelins family-the church members are going to finish it, and the family will move in tomorrow (take that Ty Pennington LOL) Here it is- the house:
We played ball all morning:
and an emotional departure. The pastor and his staff presented us with gifts-another life lesson; people with nothing will give away more than any we know. We leave at 4:45 am, so will be a short night for the team. Arrive in Denver at 9pm, and hop on the bus for an overnighter to Rapid. I told the team they would all be ready to go to work Monday morning-as they will arrive around 4am Monday.
Thank you for your prayers-they were felt! We will have a reunion at Hills Alive to retell stories, and strengthen the friendships. No one is the same after this trip-and perhaps, that is the best thing of all.
The Pastor told us what this field really means to the community. They used to go out to a field close by, and the owner would chase them out with a machette. He said that this will strengthen the local church, and help hundreds of kids to learn the gospel.
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost
but now am found
but now i see.
