Hallelujah to the LORD!!! We got our final occupancy approval today. God is so good! We still have some finish work to do and there will of course be things needing to be done throughout the time in this building but I will no longer have to worry about inspections! Praise God! Our next big project will be to replace some damaged drywall in our foyer area. There has been a leak for a long time above one of our windows but the realtor thought it had been repaired. Well, it hadn't but it was repaired this past week. We will now have to tear out the damaged area and fix it.
Praise God for our household goods being picked up today by Pastor Timothy Rupard of Temple Baptist Church in Newland, NC. They have a ministry helping missionaries with transporting household goods, church equipment, etc. Please pray with us that God will provide the funds for Pastor Rupard to make the trip out here at the end of June. With gas prices high it will cost a good chunk for them to haul the 20 ft trailer from N. Carolina to Salida. God has the funds but the Bible say "ye have not, because ye ask not." I believe in bringing my needs and concerns to my Heavenly Father because he owns the cattle on a thousand hills and the gold in them there hills!! Thank you to the men of Little River Baptist Church that helped with the loading of our stuff and thank you to Pastor Rupard and the men with him for hauling it.
