Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, that is all I can say!! I have been truly humbled by the help we received at the building. I am thankful for the men and women who gave of their time to help us gut the building. It was a huge success. We started Saturday morning Nov. 5th at 8:00am and by 9:30am all of the demolition was complete. We then spent the rest of the day, until 2:30pm, cleaning up and getting everything to the dumpster. We had a lot of fun and fellowship. The whole building has been gutted down to the bare stud walls. The only thing left to do is a little more cleaning, sweeping, and pulling a few nails, then we are ready to start the rebuilding process.
I am amazed at the support we received from the churches that came. We had a total of 27 people representing four churches from the state of Indiana. These men gave up their Saturday to be a part of a filthy dirty demo job. We had a lot of fun though. It blesses my heart to see all these people supporting the work in Brownstown. I am even more excited to get moving forward, and can't wait to be preaching from the pulpit of New Life MBC in Brownstown Indiana.
Whats next? Well there is a few great things that need to happen. See all those stud walls they need insulation, drywall, electrical, paint. Those floors we are standing on need leveled, cleaned, carpeted, and chairs put on them. In other words we have a lot of things to get done before we open doors to the public. Most of all we need financial support to make all of this happen. We need your prayers for God to provide the finances to complete this work. Our most pressing need right now is a roof. The roof on this building is an old shake shingle roof. It is developing a few leaks and needs to be replaced before the snow flies. I know that God has already provided the finances to do this. I pray that you will be willing to give it up for his work!
Keep us in your prayers as we labor here in Brownstown. We pray that you will financially give support to help us complete this building. Financial support can be sent to our sponsoring Church. If you want to give a one time offering to help with the building expenses send a check to Redfield Missionary Baptist Church, P.O. Box 25, Redfield, AR 72132.

We want to say a very Humble Thank You for your prayers and support.
