In God's Time
October promises to be an exciting month of building. We have several volunteer work teams coming in through this month to help with the framing of the next section of our building. The picture to the right shows the section that we will be adding this month.
In preparation for the team scheduled for this coming weekend (October 10) we needed to get our blocks filled and anchor bolts set. My boys and I were going to work on this task, mixing concrete by hand to fill the necessary sections of the block. We weren't planning on meeting anyone, we were just going to do it ourselves. As we came over the hill toward the Church's drive way, a cement truck was pulling in ahead of us.
We followed the truck down the driveway, wondering what might be the meaning of this strange event, since we had not ordered any concrete, we were going to mix it by hand. When we got back to the church building, Jerome, and a couple other boys were there getting ready to fill the block. Timing could not have been better. In fact, it was perfect. It was a "God thing" from the beginning.
It seems that a neighbor was pouring concrete that morning. When he found out that we were planning on filling the blocks, he offered us what ever was left in the truck. The driver was kind enough to drive over to the church yard, and empty his rig there, so that we could use the ready mix. Our family just happened to arrive at precisely the right time. Praise the Lord! Blocks filled, anchor bolts set, in about 3 hours. It was an unbelievable morning.
