iconnect: Connection Church Missions Team LIVE from Mexico!

Frank Fenbert has graciously (okay…I didn’t have to beg too much…) offered to be our first international iconnector while on a missions trip with Connection Church.    Our team,  led by Ron “Uncle Ron” Brooks, also includes:  Bruce Carlson, Ken Cary, Bill Abbott, Allen Lilly, Carl & Karen Anderson, Diane Van Wasshnova,  Kim Bailey, Gary & Rebecca Josephson and of course, Frank.    Frank captures their hard work with these photos and journal entry.  Please continue to pray for our team!!!

Monday December 8, 2008.  Day one of working.  The progress that the church Templo Bethania has made since we have been here a year ago is amazing.  The roof is on and all of the old church is removed.  We spent the day building additional exterior walls out of metal studs for the very top of the building, framing in the beautiful arched windows in the upper story sanctuary and hanging drywall.  We also hung additional lighting fixtures in the main sanctuary.  An extremely productive day for a bunch of hack carpenters and electricians.  We will be back tomorrow at 8:00 am to continue the work.  We are fortunate in that we will be able to visit later in the week the Nuevo Esperanzo Hogar de Ninos (New Hope Children’s Home) which is the orphanage that is run by Art and Joyce Stoneking.
