Saturday we had 12 volunteers and family to rebuild and reshingle Barb and Jim's leaking roof. As you can tell from the video Jim is quite the entertainer.

Ok painting is about complete. Thanks Matt Siver for stepping up to the plate. Today it was all ABWK Board members working together to drive this to completion. Matt, Gary, Donn and Razz went at it with the end in sight. Another hour or two and we'll turn it over to the roofer. Thanks to all who help make this happen.

Those few spots were all that got painted. This project needs a crew of 5 or 6 for half a day to get this project finished. It starts with a leader interested give Razz a call at 651-329-3644.

A special thanks to Gary Cottrell who just couldn't give up finding volunteers for this project! He used his influence with his Main Street Church Family and determination to get this home complete. New front window, siding repairs and replacement, and a fresh coat of paint. Donn Arnold took the project over from Gary and balanced family obligation with his strong desire to honor the Lord and got this project complete dispite the rain. Gary Beecher is now legally blind so it was very important for us to restore it to its' original beauty. God's people came together on this and were protected, blessed and loved.

This old tired house is on the mend thanks to strong leadership, devotion and respect for the Lord that project leader Dave Freemore showed thru out the week as he contended with rainy weather and a low turnout of volunteers. Persistence and a get er done attitude from project volunteers and family helped us complete the siding installation phase of this project. After a short break we will be returning to paint and bring back the beauty old this home. If you missed out on helping stay tune for more details.

The Wisti family is so proud of their home makeover and there are only a few hour left to finish their facia. They seem to have fallen for their Project Leader in a big way. I'm very proud of my son Eric Rasmussen who lead his first ABWK project. Godly man!

God blessed us with some great weather and an eager crew. Good weather expected tomorrow and with another eager crew the house will start getting painted as well. For those who missed mission week we will be scheduling additional work days to finish our summer schedule.

Well things in Stacy are finally progressing a bit faster. Even though volunteers have been very difficult to ID. Looks like we're going to have to change the name to mission weeks. Sure hope the Spirt become infectious. Two of the 5 projects have been posponed and the other three will likely not finish by Saturday. If something opens in your schedule let it know, thanks.

Oh my, every side of this old home is a puzzle and I saved the bigest one for my buddy and brother Pastor Cary. He needed more than a sermon to solve this riddle. Best thing he bought was the Spirit which we definitely needed today.

Beecher project in North Branch is really progressing nicely and the volunteers involved are doing just what the Lord expects and expressing love in a tangable way.
