We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends

Our original plan for the Art House North was to have someone come in and, viola, do the renovations! But we got some sobering news at the beginning of the year about the sale of our house, and some other unexpected things, that reduced our renovation budget. At the same time, acquaintances, close friends, and friends of friends were offering to pitch in. Troy just jumped in and started fixing things himself... but miraculously, he was never working alone! Everyday people would materialize, seemingly out of nowhere, to help. The lock would break, and a locksmith would call or e-mail, "Let me know if I can ever help you with locks!" For over a month, Troy has been over at the church working all day, everyday. Thank you to all of our friends who came out to work with us to get this place up and running in time for our first event. We could never have done it without you!


  1. How thankful we are to see that you have had help! We have been praying that many would join you in this great project.

  2. I love this picture...mostly I am enthralled by Troy's beard. It is impressive!
