The crew prepping the site! The plan is to move the house away from the hill in the back, towards the street. The guys made quick work of tearing off the old floor and clearing the area to begin to move the base of the house.

Ministry is everywhere

by Jonathan Moe | June 18, 2019 12:44 AM

We are amazed at all of the opportunities God is providing for us to serve the community! Whether it's painting a house, having a conversation, holding a baby, or building a house, ministry is simply taking the time to ask someone, "How can I help?"

It's so cool to watch the Lord use painting Carmen's house as an opportunity to pray for her and bless her!
