Paint, Icing, and Jesus

This weekend was good. Saturday we had a church-wide work day, and lots of hard work was done by all. I helped our youth pastor re-paint the entire youth room (which was not in the original plan for the day, but okay.) It was exhausting yet fulfilling at the same time.

A Cry for More

Pastor Saeed Abedini is an American citizen, but he and his wife are from Iran.
