Us Against The Rock


We began yesterday to chip away at a large rock that was blocking a culvert under the road at Santa Clara. We used sledge hammers, cold chisels, a pick, and finally a grinder. All of these, with a large supply of elbow grease, finally got the job done. We defeated the rock, but I’m sure that in the morning when I feel the aches from infrequently-used muscles, I will know that the rock put up a good fight.



The ditch should work, though, and that’s the important thing. The aches will go away, but the drainage ditch will stay and, I pray, be a benefit to the folks of Santa Clara.

All in all, the project was a lot of fun. It was a great experience to work for the love of the people there, and for the glory of God.

It has been a privilege to be a part of this ministry, and I thank God for leading me here at this time. If Vanna, my “piano-banger”, or Robyn are reading this, I didn’t lift the sledge hammer over my head.
