I am always amazed as to the depth you and your team will go to help clean out or to build up. You are all doing the call of God and I pray someday we can just sit and share how good God has been when we have been about His business, and as He was also about ours!
May God richly bless your team and all the people you were involved with and all the homes that received attention and all those who still need attention. May He empower this community called Minot. May the Holy Spirit come and fill them up and may miracles happen in spite of what people see or believe. May the Mennonites be covered with the Lord and may many people’s homes, lives and relationships be healed and prosper all for the glory of God. And may all the plans from heaven happen on earth into this place called Minot.
Touch them Lord, in the name of Jesus of Nazareth!
Amen and amen

Subject: Minot- the Last work day
Today’s house had a dry basement. Hallelujah! We knocked our goal out of the park. 5 houses in 5 days. We were actually done around lunch time today. We just had to remove a lot of nails and drywall pieces, a couple ceilings, etc. In the basement, we had to take out a furnace. It was pretty big. We had to disassemble it. (By "we" I mean Bob and Howard. I carried parts outside). Howard found some holes on the inside that he said was kind of a good thing the flood happened because they would get worse and cause a carbon monoxide problem. God works for the Good in All things…
More observations after I get back.

The spiritual life cannot be made suburban. It is always frontier, and we who live in it must accept and even rejoice that it remains untamed.
