On Sunday we had around 50 people in the class. I am glad Dave is flexible. This class & church is very prayer motivated and care about the needs of people. I miss Momeyer Baptist and look forward to returning home in August but it will be hard to say goodbye to First Baptist of Bayfield. I pray GOD will help me be a better person when I go home. A group has started the siding on the rear of the church.
The balcony beam has arrived and it is big and heavy (3,400 lbs). All we need is an inch of clearance to get the lift inside. Ever since I met Don I have heard he enjoys equipment and is good at it so guess who gets to drive the lift. The massive beam is in place with any problems. Lots of young guys and girls this week. They are eager to learn and more than willing to help. Thank you GOD for young blooded CHRISTIANS. The girls are done with UPWARD's for today so they have gone up into the rafters to paint sealant on the ductwork. I’m glad that’s not my job. Don thinks this duct fixture might fall so he's going to hold it. Lots of wire was pulled and fixtures hung today . The work day is over and our youth are joining the First Baptist youth for a night of putt-putt. Each night we have devotion and sharing time. A report was given on the Upward basketball/cheerleading camp. Joel the youth/children minister thought maybe 20 to 30 children would show up. They had 70 on the first day. How great is GOD’s power. It is obvious that lots of these children do not know GOD and they are eager to listen and learn. It was also noted that many of the parents had stayed around to see what was happening which gives us another witnessing opportunity.
Please pray that the leaders can continue to plants seeds in Bayfield as Upward and backyard bible studies continue. Also please pray for GOD to keep his hands of safety around the construction workers. Most of all we pray that we are following GOD's guidance here and that everything we do and the way we act is to His glory.
