Two days

Our original idea was to spend all of Morton's days off of his work at the church, working on projects. We figured within 10 years, everything would be the way we wanted it. Little by little, one goes far.

According to my rough schedule on the big picture of the project, we are so far ahead of schedule it's just silly! Things are happening fast and that is down to all of the passion that is being put into this project.

Spring is going to see a big change to the crumbling steps in the front, the badly needed painting around the front door on top of the steps and a general good tidy up that will have our church looking more like a well-loved and cared for home.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we made an amazing start inside and out of several projects we have coming up. When we left the church on Wednesday evening, I was really pleased with everything we got done.

Better still, we have two helpers staying at the church as helping guests right now! They are going to be working on projects while we aren't able to be there.

We have an ad on a great website and hope to play host to lots of helpers.
If you or someone you know would be interested in being a helper, please contact us through our Helpx link above.

Happy days,

Priscilla :)
