In May of last year, our church here purchased land.
In February, we began construction.
And soooo much has happened in the past several weeks.
I really should have been updating every few days or at least once a week, but the times when the most is happening is the time when I can't find time to write!
We've moved everything out of the building we were loaned for our church for the past 2 years and moved it out to the property. We cleaned and gave back the building to the owner with very grateful hearts for the time we were able to be there.
We had the Murphy family from Oklahoma come visit us for several days giving of their time and money to not only come see us/the ministry here, but providing for the work, working in the dirt along side us, and being a tremendous blessing to our family and church here.
We had a group from the bapitst church in Los Cabos come put up walls for the bathrooms and storage room last week.
We have a group from the baptist church in Constitucion here today working on our temporary church building which we will use until the Lord provides for a permanent one.
Daniel has been at the property from early morning until past dark every day for over a month working.
On the home front, we've been working hard at school, I'm doing my best to hold down the fort here while Daniel's working at the property, the boys are out to help Dad as much as they are able, and I'm still working on getting my permanent visa and renewing my passport require many trips south.
So since so much has happened, I thought I'll just take some pictures from off my camera and phone and let you see into a bit of our lives these past few weeks. Sorry that they aren't in in order. I only have a few minutes before I need to make lunch, do some errands, and take the girls to a baby shower, but I really want you to see what the Lord is doing!
Tomorrow will be our first church service held on our own property.
