Pieces come together, bit by bit.
St Thomas of Canterbury, the parish next to the University of New Mexico, is donating five used Prayer Books and as many tables that they are not using.
The mission church of San Gabriel hopes to help us with a "miracle day" to spiff things up.
A lay person led Morning Prayer last Sunday and is eager to see this church stay open and happen. He is going to cut down the weeds around the signs out front. We will be celebrating a birthday after Eucharist this Sunday. I picked up some more supplies at Costco after work. I can donate a couple of Prayer Books from my library, plus an icon of the Rublev Trinity and a Bible.
Someone who sews is willing to make a fair linen and some burses for us.
Lesson handouts for the next four weeks have been prepared.
I am trying to see if I can start teaching English classes on Thursday nights one week after Thanksgiving.
So many possibilities.
Keep praying, my friends. We are trying to do a church plant with almost no money and nothing but faith.
There are folks who would like to see the diocese sell the property. Pray that their hearts may be turned.
Lots going on; blogging is light this week. Dinner out tomorrow.
