I (Dave) was taking some food to one of our partner agencies, yesterday afternoon, and a truck pulled up behind me and a guy jumps out and says, "I've been trying to catch up with you for days." He said that he help organize a youth group out of Phoenix that comes up to Prescott every summer and complete service projects in town and he was wondering if we have a project they could undertake. Since we just took down our deck to put in the ramp, I told him we need a deck. He said they built decks last year so they were experienced. He then asked if we had plans drawn up yet? of course not because we just tore down the old one. He asked if we could get them drawn up fast so they could build the deck? I told him we would contact an architect today. It was 4:00 pm on Friday. I had to call a pastor to get me the contact number for an architect we met last year and then again on Tuesday.
4:45 pm And I call hoping to leave a message, but Paul Marx answers the phone and I explain our situation and he agrees to come out on Monday to look at our project. 30 mins. later he called back and said he was outside and wanted to look at the site now. after looking it over he said he would be back in the morning to measure everything out.
Saturday morning at 9:30 he comes back and measures it all out and says he has some ideas about flower boxes and seating areas and extending the roof to cover the deck and ramp.
We ask him to send us a bill and he says, "Nope." He won't accept pay, it's his ministry.
GOD is still in the business of knocking our socks off with HIS supplying for our needs through HIS people.
Can't wait to see how GOD provides the funds/materials for the new deck now.
