It is already Wednesday, where does the week go? Scott and I Scheduled two more interviews for the new session for the end of the week. We will be doing one interview by phone from jail. We also had another interview via phone from a young woman out of state. Hopefully after Friday we will have the first five of the eight girls for the next session. That leaves only three beds available. Every one so far is under 30 years of age. The girls are coming from every type of background and all types of addiction.
Scott has finished all the work for the new edition. He worked so hard. Many days by himself. He has finished another great job. we tore down walls and built on a large dressing/closet area with two large baths. We had some great help with the floors and supplies from some wonderful local folks. One of our directors bought a large heater to heat the area. Bobby was a great help to Scott assisting in some of the building, plumbing and electricity.
We purchased the rest of the supplies for the bath area (towels, shower curtains, rods, etc). I am still amazed at how God supplies all the needs here at the mission. We will finish putting all that together tomorrow. Our annual Sumner Family Christmas time will be this Sunday. Scott and I have bben in charge of that this year. Scott has come up with some fun games. we look forward to get the opportunity to spend time with family.
Tomorrow will be yet another busy day as we will contact all the volunteers for the pre-training that will take place after Christmas. we will also need to make the upcoming daily schedule and the 6 month schedule for special events. In between all this we have to keep up our walk with the Lord. We have yet to get a break to stop and enjoy some time off. We trust God will keep us strong as we will depend upon Him to get us through. Oh ya, I have been studying Proverbs, it has been good. just wish I had more time to study. Scott said he was going to miss being able to walk and pray downstairs in the early mornings in the chapel area when the house fills up. Until next time God bless and Have a great day!
