JD Ross Project for LTMW:
The week before Live the Mission Weekend we had heavy moving equipment brought in to move a more than six foot high mound of manure, and a bunch of steel poles. It would be a back breaking chore for anyone and would take every one of us the whole day to move. On Saturday, the whole day was filled with excitement and glee. People seemed to move into projects that just naturally fit their skills. We filled the freezer with lots of delicious meals for the family so when the family is able to come home they will not have to worry about cooking for awhile. The sticks and stones and sting were picked up so the mowing and trimming could begin. Then the trees and bushes were trimmed, the grass was mowed and we filled the trucks with trash again and again as they delivered it to the dump. The flowers were planted, the garden was tilled, the windows were washed, the carpets were cleaned and the laundry was done. The barns were cleared and the tables and chairs were painted. With a final God bless you and thank you for coming we set the water timer for the grass and drove off through the triple cross gate and asked God to bless this family and bring them home soon. After such a hot wonderful day it began to rain. I could only think that God was tending to all the flowers that we had just planted.
