When we arrived at the work site the first day the team was met with two parallel chalk lines about three feet apart, running alongside the building and then veering towards a shed bordering the street.

The team adapted to tools that were less than adequate and dug in (literally) to the work that was asked of them. Over the course of five days chalk lines were transformed into a trench stretching over 300 feet long, and depths that varied from four to ten feet deep.  In five days, a trench had been dug, sewer pipe had been laid, and much of the trench had been recovered.

Faith and action worked in concert with each other.  It would not have happened if the team believed that it couldn’t be done, or waited for the right tools. Commitment, encouragement, focus, and playfulness, worked together to accomplish something that at first seemed inconceivable. Matthew 21:21.
