Ringin’ in the new year with hammers and nails

We’re ringin’ in the new year with a construction project.  That appears to have become the norm for us.

Are you tired of construction pictures yet?  Too bad!  We’ve got a week to go on this project.  In case you missed previous posts.  We’re working on a construction project through our church at Deer Ridge Ministries.  Click here to see what they do at Deer Ridge.

Building a ramp in the garage to make the ministry handicapped accessible. IMG_5569 Dan & Keith working on a shower in the new bathroom.  With the installation of this bathroom, the Deckers will be able to accommodate one more guest during each session.  Every pastor & their spouse have their own bedroom and private bathroom.


The food they’ve been feeding us is nothing short of extraordinary.  Sufferin’ for Jesus, I say!

For New Years Eve we participated in a murder mystery.  What a bunch of fun!  I’d do another one in a heartbeat!

and the cast of characters. 


We have tomorrow off and start all over again with new team members on Monday.  Our goal is to have the commercial kitchen, a full bath and a half bath done by Saturday evening, January 8th.  What do you think?  Will we make it?


  1. I have no doubt that you'll make it! Things seem to be progressing pretty quickly.

  2. I hope you make it...what a wonderful ministry!

  3. It's fun to see your progress--one more week? Blessings, Marlene
