Moving the Chapels

Friday evening, December 6

DSC_1406After we arrived, Tim and Cerwin removed some exterior attachments to the old chapel. I’m not sure what everything was, but they looked like antennas and such.

DSC_1424Cerwin crawled under the trailer and loosened the slack adjusters, then hit the brake shoes to release the brakes. (I don’t know about things like that, but that is what he told me he did.)

DSC_1443Cerwin, Tim, and the volunteers were so pleased to have the new chapel in place by the end of the day – 5:00 p.m.

That was not something they thought would happen in the early afternoon.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for us on Friday.

God was truly WITH us.

It was surely a time to rejoice!
