Monday in Durham

Today has been a good day. I have heard, only, good reports of the beginning of the weeks work. Flexibility was definitely put into practice today. Most of the work sites didn't have materials for work this morning.

My crew started the day with prayer. We prayed that Mrs. Evans' neighbors would see Christ in us this week. Then we went to work. We had to take down the gutters first thing. The next task was to scrape the old paint off her house so we could paint. The materials needed for this part of the job are scrapers and plastic. We had the scrapers but we didn't have the plastic, so we couldn't get started right away. So I organized an on the spot prayer walk. We divided the group in two and started walking and praying. When the group returned still no plastic. There is another job site about a block away so I sent several from my crew to beg/borrow some plastic so we could work. God provided plastic, some from the work site down the street and some from HGBC. I found plastic in the materials you supplied (I told you God was good!!). So we got to work scraping. About 11 AM the rest of the plastic was delivered to the site. We got half way through with the scraping and it was time to head back to SHS. We should finish scraping tomorrow and then paint Wednesday and Thursday.

Tonight's supper was very good, NC BBQ. Jeth was even pleased with it. I was so relieved (LOL). Worship was great also. God is moving and I can't wait to see what He does, how He does it, and who He does it to and through. It may even be you. (Pray!)

Serving Him,
Pastor Mike
