I believe that I can safely say that we had our strongest (and largest!) winter staff this year. It was great serving alongside them and seeing their heart for ministry. Our vision is to see "individual lives transformed by the power of Jesus" and I have definitely seen transformation in our staff lives this winter. A HUGE thanks to our staff for working so hard. I'm looking forward to keeping this culture moving into spring.
I'm thankful for a couple of good Reaching Higher meetings in Gem and Rosemary recently. It seems like the Reaching Higher momentum continues to grow. Our current pledge/donation total is $694,003 and progress continues on the homes. I'm thankful for volunteers like Barry and his daughter Kristianne who connected power to the homes. The plan is to turn the heat on today! I want to say another HUGE thanks to Scott and Brian for working on our "mud homes." They are making great progress with the window batten, soffit and fascia in spite of the incredible amount of mud they are working in. Brian was moving a ladder yesterday, got stuck, and we almost had to tow him out.
While I'm thanking people I would like to thank some folks from Lendrum church. Our good friend Bob is working with David, Diana and Don to get our Gator back on its wheels. Thanks also to David and Mary for donating our "new to us" maintenance truck. This truck will replace our aging Dakota which we just found out was donated to us by George - who also attends Lendrum!
And finally, I'm thankful for your continued support!
