Refuge work day

A few weeks ago, on July 7th, we had Refuge youth group from First Presbyterian Church of Hillsboro Illinois bring a group of very hard working young people to help us out for a day and to share in some good fellowship time as well. It was over 100 degrees outside, but that didn't even seem to phase these guys! They were all over the place doing anything and everything from tearing nasty sheetrock out of an apartment building that will be used to house missionaries and people who are homeless,

We also had a group who helped us with some tuck pointing that was in really bad shape on one of out other buildings...

It also just so happens that they brought a few professional carpenters with them who were able to brace the roof in our future Opportunity Garage to keep it from collapsing even further! This garage had been a great worry for us since none of us had the skill or knowledge to be able to deal with it in a safe way. It truly is amazing how God provides!

A big thanks goes out to Refuge for all the work they helped with and the blessing they were to us. 
If you would like to come be a part of what God is doing here, please feel free to get in touch with us. you can call Mark Goodwin @ 636-544-2153 or send an email to mark@sunministries.org
