Saturday brought an early-morning call for several folks at the airport - Pastor Mark, Jane and Fred. Ray picks up a rental car at the airport too. Rick and Noah start their drive back to Colorado. Roger leaves on his motorcycle for a 500 mile day towards Chicago. Steve and Lynn are continuing on their National Park exploration heading west.
In the morning newspaper is a great article about the ELCA Mission Builders team that is working at Christ Lutheran Church.
And on the Hope Village web page is a newsy article about the SAKLC team based on a stop at the church to see the work that was going on there.
Ray, Ann, Steve and Lynn also attended the Saturday 5:00 pm service at Christ Lutheran Church. The ELCA Mission Builders Becky and Bill presented an update to the congregation on the progress this past week. A few tidbits of information: over 500 hours were worked at the church by contractors, ELCA Mission Builders, Congregation Members and the SAKLC volunteers (217 hours). The most work in one week! In addition, the new storage room built by Ann, Fred and Roger and painted by Jane with help from Lynn and Noah was filled up by church volunteers on Saturday. The church members were thrilled with being able to store so much and still have space left. Most of the items in the room belong in other places in the church like the kitchen and office. Until those areas are completed the storage room is great. Thanks again, SAKLC servants.
