Kodiak Day 2

Day two started with a good hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs.  Afterwhich, me and a couple of other guys crawled under the church in hopes of stopping the monsterously loud pipe clanging that happens when you flush the toilet.  After a few minutes of military style crawls through the underside of the church, we fixed all the lower problems.  All that remains is to remove a section of the wall in the ladies bathroom and anchor the pipes in the wall. 
      After the pipescapades, we went up to have a devotional time.  Brenda led the time and discussed the purposes of the Holy Spirit and what tasks He performs in a believers life.  (Amy-Forgotten God).  A great message and really focused me on where this trip's success really lies.  After the devotional, we divided up the daily tasks and set to work. 
My job today was gopher/electrician/booth erector.  I ran folks from the church to the Crab Fest and back.  I ran to the hardware store and back, and back again.  Don and I tried to fix an electrical outlet in the parsonage.  It needed to be moved to accomodate some new cabinets.  It wasn't as easy as one might think.  The tool selection here is not the greatest.  But we made the best of it and finally got it together (we hope).

After working on the wiring, we had our dinner time.  CRAB LEGS and Steaks!  Crab legs were amazing! It was a wonderful meal.  After making a quick stop at the Wal*Mart, we had our nightly worship time.  Brenda, a West Point, MS native now living in Georgia, led a teenage boy to Christ at the Festival.  We are also giving away a 32" LCD TV and had several sign up for that.  In doing so, we asked them if they wanted more information about Frontier Baptist Church.  We had 20 requests for information and five of those had specific prayer requests. People, God is moving!  Pray for His power to continue to break through the darkness here.
Well, the fog and cold have finally arrived here in Kodiak.  Tomorrow will be a little less pleasant (Temps went from 68 to 48 in about 2 hours). But we are eagerly awaiting more blessings from our Lord.  Grace and Peace....until tomorrow.
