Ready to pour...

Canada HANDS Team:

We had a long, long day preparing for concrete tomorrow! The trucks will arrive at 7 am and we will be on hand to rake out the concrete. Thankfully a crane will drop the concrete onto the third floor for us!   We are blessed with the skills and persistence of the team members.  We were also blessed by weather, it was cloudy and considerably cooler today, God is good – all the time!  The building process is a testament to God’s presence in this place. Over the past four years, Unity School has continued to grow, despite some obstacles. 

Cute story: Did you see the graffiti in the girls’ washroom? 

What – there is graffiti? 

Yes, it says “I love God!”

I have summoned you by name, you are mine (Isaiah 43:1) What a comfort to know that we have been chosen and redeemed by God, and God is calling all nations to Himself, and we can see them responding!

(A special hello goes out to the Berkels- yes, no news IS good news!)

This is a beautiful job, with the service of those that determine to give their time to God.

Mathew 25:40 - Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Service to God is the best anyone could give.

God bless you all

Bless you for your faithfulness.

I was part of the team that was there in April. And wishing I was there with you now. Pastor Betson is awesome. Give him a hug for me. He got me to snorkel, never done before.

I just wanted to say, whatever you do, take the time to connect with the kids. Look them in the eyes and let them know how precious they are.
