Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I just wanted to update you all again on what is going on with the Outreach Ministry in Marion. Things are going absolutely great. As I have said before the help that we've had within the church and outside the church is absolutely amazing. I cannot imagine how we would have done what has been done without the awesome group of people God has given us.

At this time the sound system has been installed. The yards have been finished again and prepared for the initial opening. All sheetrock work has been done, sanded, and painting has begun. Actually, all painting has been done except just a little in the bathrooms which will be completed Saturday. The cleaning crew has gone down and recleaned everything. We are now just doing odds and ends to wrap things up. There are so many things that are being done simultaneously that it's hard to tell you all of them.

I will say that all has gone even better than planned. We have not even started the first service there and some other things have opened up since we have begun this work. I am looking forward to the first service with great anticipation at all that God is going to do.

Until next time,

Marion Ministry Update

Thanks to great help things are moving very rapidly now. We are actually about a week ahead of where we thought we would be at this point. All walls for offices and classes are up now. All sheetrock work has been done with the exception of sanding that will be done this weekend. The sound system is being installed today. The painting will start next week. One crew is scheduled to go up and do a final cleaning. Another crew is going to go up and do the yards one more time before we start.

Overall everything is great. If we have run into any problems at all I don't know what they are. I know this is more responsibility, but with the help we have it is very easy to handle. I cannot say enough how appreciative I am about the help we have here at this church. What God is doing could not happen without faithful people.

I know that many are still wanting to know about the start date. This is what I am doing right now. My next post I should be able to give the start date. I have been hesitant to do so because I do not want to tell everyone a date and then something come up and I have to change it. I really like to stick with what I tell everyone.

Until next time,

Pastor J
