To you my friend video

Before watching this or the Celine and Elvis video scroll to the bottom and mute the play list so you can listen to these only. On the right side just pull the line down to mute. If you want to here the play list again just go back to bottom and push the line back up. Sorry for the trouble, hope you enjoy

This is for all my friends and followers, Thanks

New Church

If you read the "In Memory of" with the loss of my brother what a low I was in. In June 2009 we had started to build our new church. The name of the church is Grace Fellowship. it is a non demonational church. This church began new around 2004 with 17 people. As it became larger we needed out own place and a larger space. We bought and paid for our 17 acres of land and started the building fund. As the economy got bad our funds were slow.
Than one day out of the blue, as we were having a lunch at church in walks Mr. Pollard and a few of his workers. They were Carpenters for Christ builders that had found out we were trying to build a new church building. From that the ball started rolling.
Then first of June 105 men came from The Carpenters for Christ to put our church under roof. . It was amazing to see these wonderful men of God working.
All through the summer other church teams came, each doing
thing the building needed until it finally looked as if we were going to have a new church.
Thanks to all these wonderful people. We could never have done
it without them, along with our members and our wonder minister
and his wife brother Vola and Jeannie Brown. I do not have a picture of the outside as we are waiting on the weather to do the
landscaping. I will put a picture of it on at that time.

With my painting crafts and other things, I was to do murals in the children's rooms. Oh, my what have I gotten my self into I have never done this. So we began to plan our walls .Doronda and me began to gather graphics and pictures. We began just before Thanksgiving and painted 3-5 days sometimes 5-7 hrs a day.
Each day I prayed for God to give me strength and guide my hands to do my best job of painting that I could do The timing was perfect and it took my mind off me and the loss of my brother. I want to show them to you, they are not professional but the children love them and I am proud of them.
On Feb.14 2010 we moved into the new church. It is good to see God working there, have baptised eight in the new baptistry in just three weeks. Plus so many new things are happening.
There is a free medical clinic (non profit) one day a week that our members are giving of their time to make this happen. A doctor, nurse, and minister for physical and spirtual needs.

Plus a walking track.

Next post I will put on my murals.
