Without a Vision...

Just wanted to share a little with our praying ministering saints. Below are a few of the projects that have been on my mind as of late in no particular order. Some are in progress and held up due to time, labor or finances. Some are needed now, Some are needed soon, some will add more ongoing expenses we must also find a way to meet. But all need prayer. Listed with a guestment of the costs. As of this posting we have $159.74 in the bank. We already bought food for this week but the rent is due Monday for the house in city we need to close…but need the communications and need to finish a few things at the lighthouse. I do not believe we have ever started a project with money in the bank to complete it…it always comes at Gods appointed time later Amen!Without a vision….

In the photo is the property we cleared out to build a chapel and future church on the Lighthouse property. The kids cleaning the old tent now being used in San Geronimo to start a church. And the new entrance for La Cruz Baptist Church so we no longer have to walk in the mud like we did for 3 years under the tent. Just a little cement and alot of rocks hauled out of the river...Amen. They also need a roof on the classroom pictured.
unworthy servant to a Worthy Saviour,
