Sunday thoughts – 11 October 2009

We went out yesterday to help a bunch of churches from the town to do some essential maintenance work on one of the poorer churches in the ghetto.

We removed the roof (so we can replace it next Saturday) and we did a whole bunch of other prep work.

Next week we plan to:

  • Pour new concrete and gravel to make a parking lot for them.
  • Install a sprinkler system for the grass around the building
  • Finish replacing the roof
  • Repaint and repair the entire exterior of the building
  • paint some of the interior
  • Plant new shrubs and flowers outside
  • Replace all of the external doors.
  • Plus…
  • Do a free community car wash
  • and a free BBQ!

It’s so good to serve and it’s so good to get together with other churches to do something which doesn’t help us directly but is needed in the work of the kingdom of God here in town!

I love it when the Church works together across denominational boundaries!
