Day three on the mountain top

Posted by David Brennan on

Today my group had the opportunity to serve by starting our porch project!  After we took off the old one, we began building the frame for the next porch. One new thing I learned today was how to use a pickaxe, which was great because we got to pickaxe some rocks as we dug new holes for the posts. One thing that was memorable was that we had the opportunity to get to know the resident that we are helping, and she is very nice! I am looking forward to spending more time getting to know the woman that we are helping, and to hopefully finish the porch that we are building for her. If you could, please be praying that things will continue to go smoothly and that we won’t have to stop because of the rain! – Aaron Smith

Our group had the blessing to go and begin our siding project! We were greeted with a smiling face of the resident that we will be helping this week, which made so many of the students and leaders smile and feel at home. One thing I noticed was that the students were eager to do as much work as possible! Even when the heavy rain began they were still trying to work on the project. Following dinner we had the opportunity to sit and learn about Jonesville's rich history from two longtime residents. This was an important time for students because it revealed some of the realities that the residents deal with on a daily basis. I am looking forward to spiritual maturity that God will work in these students as they continue to serve and be the hands and feet of Jesus to these residents. Please be praying for energy levels, that students will not feel burned out, but strengthened in their hearts, minds, souls, and bodies for the work God has given us. - David Brennan
