God Sized Project

We are stepping out into a BIG project. A God sized project. One there is no doing without His favor.

We are building a 50′ x 100′ building. It will contain two apartments, a two car garage, a craft room/office, and a shop. One apartment is home for Brian’s mom, Barb, as long as she needs it. In part this is very much for our family, our dream, something longed for. I will have craft space, quiet writing space, room to put things away, even a finished house. The kids will have room to work, to play, to learn the great range of skills their father can teach them. There will be room for friends and fun.

Another part is a knowing there is much more to this building and our building it. What that looks like-I do not know. I know it will impact the world for the Kingdom.

We looked at our steel package in the yard this morning discussing the goodness God has already shown and the favor we need and expect to complete this project. We realized Miracle Truss is the company that designed the structure of our building. We purchased the building from WorldWide Steel.

We are fully expecting miracles to be able to complete this building. We also have a deep knowing that miracles will somehow go worldwide from our building or because of us taking this step of faith. One wall of the shop will display forever testimony of the miracles God does during the construction of this building.

Wall of Miracles
I plan to create a wall to record the amazing things God does during this building process.

The most recent miracle for the wall is a 9 fold increase on the refund for poor coating on our trusses. The original offer of $2,000 from WorldWide ended with us receiving a check for over $18,000. The mistake will be totally corrected without any additional expense to us.
The shop will open many opportunities for family and friends. We see ministry for working on vehicles, building projects, fabricating, and other projects that come along. We also sense more. . . somehow.
