Rancho Oasis took another step towards finishing phase one of construction last week, thanks to some brothers from West Virginia. Phase one includes the completion of the chapel.
The Chapel Stage
|Moving & mixing concrete by hand|
Working on the chapel's stages was the most physically demanding job of the week, but the men and our hired help finished in two days. Pastor Shawn insists on raising money to purchase a concrete mixer for next time! Can I hear an amen?
|We brought in a special worship band for the stage's inauguration!|
The Chapel's Gable Ends
One of the greatest blessing during the construction work was the fellowship and experience between the men on the team and our hired-hand Oscar and his Uncle, Jose de la Paz. The "hands-on" experience was priceless for Oscar as he was able to try many new power tools (donated by the team) for the first time.
After living on the property for a year (February 24th was our one year anniversary in Honduras) it was such a blessing to see the chapel one step closer to completion.

Not only did the men finish some important projects for the Ranch, they also provided great fellowship in the Lord!
Muchisimas gracias, Shawn, AJ and John!
