“Can you help us build a church?” One of the three district pastors we work with had just proposed the question.
Many things began to run through DJ’s mind… Our mission isn’t to build churches… he is talking about new churches in small communities though, some of the very places we’ve been doing medical work… maybe if they build the walls and we provide materials for the roofs… Aha! The Lansing Adventist School had just asked if we had any specific projects that they could sponsor for their Penny Wars fundraiser…
“Yes! Yes, I think we could,” DJ began to get excited as he and the pastor talked through more specifics.
The Lansing School fundraiser covered the first four church roofs. Then a visiting volunteer wanted to sponsor the church roof in the village she did medical work in. Now we have agreed to help with two more church roofs in the next few months.
It is very gratifying to see the work that began years ago coming to fruition! We hope you enjoy the pictures of the churches in varios stages of construction.
