Painting the church.

Scraping wallpaper off of the wall in the girl's bathroom.
Rachel, Michelle Butler, and Elizabeth preparing walls for painting.

As you can see by Reuben's shoes, there was
alot of glue etc. on the floor after taking off the wallpaper.
Today, Mom, Ben, Reuben, Elizabeth, and Rachel painted and cleaned at the church. Alot of work had already been done thanks to Michelle, Misty, and the Krahns. Well we were there, we were able to finish the women's bathroom, the organ room, and the hallway. Alexis and Elizabeth did a good job looking after the kids.
Doing the job made me think of alot of christian's lives. Some people try to paint over their real selves and hide what is truly there. Before long if the paint is not constantly washed and cleaned up it starts cracking and peeling-the true self starts to show. The only way to have joy is to have a clear conscience before God and man. What you see is what you get.
While they were gone, Dad installed a garage door we bought at GF yesterday. The old one was just about ready to fall apart!
