Already this month, we have traveled over 2,500 ministry miles. And we are getting ready to head to a mission conference this coming weekend in Pennsylvania. Of course, the kids are getting a little tired of sitting in the van, but Lisa has been finding some unique ways of making the trips fun, even when we are stuck in the car for long periods of time.
We did travel some new roads on that last trip to WA. Snow was reported in Montana, so we stayed a little further south instead of going up to I-90. We traveled I-80 out west and came back on I-70. We were surprised to see how flat Colorado is when you get east of Denver.
We thank everyone who has been praying for our safety on the roads. We narrowly avoided an accident in Saint Louis on our last trip and then made it to Washington State and back without incident. God has been very good to us. We have yet to get into any accidents on the road during deputation, and we praise God for that!
Tanner Family Update
We have only been back at Missionary Acres for about 10 days. During that time, we had a work group come in from Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Smithville, Ohio. Enough people came down that we were able to split up into multiple groups. One of the groups was able to work on our house for part of the time. They removed the old garage door and built a new wall in the opening. They were also able to get all of the floor joists installed in this space. Bryan needs to run some plumbing and install insulation before we put the sub-floor down. The space is looking a lot different and we’re so thankful for all of their work.
We will be leaving Missionary Acres again this week on Friday to attend a mission conference in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
After this trip, Bryan will be working hard to try and arrange some more meetings. We are praying that God will bless us with a full schedule in 2022. Please also pray that we would be able to see the remaining support needed arrive quickly so we can stay at the Acres full time. Praise God, we had some additional support come in over the last month and we now only need to raise $884 to be fully supported.
Missionary Acres Update
The workgroup from Pleasant Hill Baptist Church completed a lot of work around Missionary Acres last week. One of the teams removed old carpet, tile, and other floorings from two of the houses that we need to remodel. They also removed some kitchen cabinets from one of the houses. Bryan worked with another group of men, and they were able to remove two rotten decks and rebuild them.
The massive praise of the week came at a new house being built. With some help from a local man, the workgroup completed the block work there, both for the home and the garage. They were also able to finish all of the core fillings and install the seal plate. This is a huge answer to prayer.
The next step will be to get concrete slabs poured into the crawl space and garage. Then we will be able to get started on the construction of the house.
Would you please pray for more volunteers that would be willing and able to come and work on this project? As mentioned before, we also have multiple remodeling projects in the works, and volunteer help is greatly needed.
