This is the first large project since my heart attack that I have been able to do. I know to most its not a large project but to me it was quite a large task to get completed.
The Pastor ask if I thought I would be able to handle it, as they had no one else to turn too.
I smiled and accepted the task. Not knowing if I could or could not do it but I have to try. Turns out it still seems to be a bit to much even after almost 2 years.
Yesterday 9/12/2010 the prayer room was dedicated to the church and the room was opened for use.
Construction is all buscuit and dowel….wood stained to match other wood in the church and finished in poly. The kneeling pads were finished by another person in the church.
Thank you for taking a peek.

I think that “Rj” said it best. And, I hope that your recovery process is still going well.
