Molding a lump of clay

Molding a lump of clay
I am a work in progress, molded by my Maker, refined by His fire, shaped with His love. Walk the journey with me.

After all these years...




...our house is finally under way! After 3 years of renting off-base, we hope to be moving to the YWAM Arua base to join the rest of the team by the end of this year. Wishful thinking? We'll see! I'll keep you posted!

There's 'the slab'...otherwise known as the foundation


Aidan is standing where his fitted wardrobe will be


No cement-mixing machines here


My study where I'll write my masterpiece(s)


Precarious perches


John in the hallway (hope it's going to be wide enough!)

Me in front of the house (gonna have a LOT of yard work to do!)

Vikki, it's so exciting to see the beginnings of your home! I hope the construction all goes to plan... I also hope we'll see the completed home when we next come to visit! Lots of love, Gemma
