We Have Family in Arkansas!

Want to see Christ in action? Watch the slide show.  These folks are the most amazing people we have ever had the privilege of meeting.  From Jonesboro, Arkansas; Swifton, Arkansas; Red Bud, Arkansas; Moro, Arkansas; Searcy, Arkansas and Harrisburg, Arkansas.

They built a block wall to keep the grounds from eroding into the dorms (which was happening), built several storage rooms, installed a big new bathroom in the “Blair House” (Barbara, you will remember this house with great fondness.)  Some of the ladies scraped the damaged dorm ceilings and did repairs and painted some of the dorm interior walls. 

Kris, a sister blessed with a gift of organization skills that are unbelieveable–organized Jeff’s shop.  The entire thing looks incredible!  Kris–when your group comes back….uhmmm it might need to be “re-organized” as other people go in and “borrow” and don’t put things back where they got it….

Another group of four ladies worked for ALL of the team by cooking the BEST meals and deserts around!  I told Pam and Vicki, they had totally spoiled Jeff.  He is used to either left overs, a sandwich or take-out for lunch.  They cooked fresh –homemade–nothing from a box meals! 

Thank you Pam, Vicki, Glenda and Sandra for all the fine food and sweet friendship.  You girls blessed me more than anything I could have ever imagined.  (That story is for another blog post.)

We bonded with these folks in a way that left us both with tears when they departed.  These are people we call family.  And we thank God for the planting of our feet and crossing of our paths.

Thank you Pastor Matt Smith for bringing this fine group of missionaries to our district.  You all did an amazing job!  Words cannot fully express all the gratitude we feel for your heart and faith in action!
