|Dave's cousin Dan taping the basement|
Just to name a few:
- licensed contractor who pulled the permit for us to start the work on the basement
- licensed electrician who pulled the permit which allowed us to bring in our own electricians
- churches who continue to give of their time and resources to see its restoration
- perfect timing of volunteers to install insulation, hang sheetrock, mud & tape sheetrock, paint, install drop ceiling, and start the punch list of hanging doors and putting up trim.
So does God care about basements? Well, I'm starting to think He does but not just for the basement's sake, but for my faith and for yours. I know for me, throughout these past couple of months of being an eyewitness to His constant provision, my faith has grown and my trust in Him continues to increase. I pray that through the restoration of a church basement that the Body of Christ is encouraged to see that God does care for us, He loves us, and He wants us to depend on Him.
