Mission Accomplished!


The Czech 2010 team returned to the US on Thursday after a very successful ministry week working on Selah! Every team member left a little of themselves in Eastern Czech Republic!

Our final projects were to put as much manpower as we could into finishing the first set of stairs from the first to second floor and get a good start on the framing of the outside walls on the second floor. 4 guys worked pretty much for two days laying out, machining and installing two massive sections of stairs. We estimated that the sections weighed about 500 pounds apiece.

While that was going on, Art led Joyce and Lenore with the framing project ... and nearly completed it! ... even insulating the walls! What a great trio!

As a team, we so grew to appreciate each other, and the gifts and talents God has given us to use to serve others. Its our prayer that God will use the work we did on Selah to help provide a place of rest, renewal and restoration to the lives of the many Josiah Venture workers who will stay there. It's a beautiful place, but even more so ... its a place where God's Spirit is present and evident. Lives will be changed because of being at Selah ... and there are seven people who will attest to that fact ... because their lives have already been changed as they served here together!

Thanks so much to the many family and friends who prayed, supported and followed us during this ministry time. We appreciate each of you so much ... and thank God for you!


Enjoy a final group of pictures of the group in action!

Glad to do it, Eric!

Oh, BTW ... the sign in the picture of the "3 brothers" translates from Polish the street of the "Three Brothers" ... I think it lead to a well on the bottom of the street.
