After many snowfalls, we have three feet of snow (more in the drifts) on the ground! This amount of snow on the roofs can cause significant damage to our buildings. Some of our neighbors in the community have already lost roofs to outbuildings. The Massey and Morrison families spent this past Saturday shoveling off roofs that posed problems and salted the over-sized icicles that hung off the roofs. We are so thankful for our donors, whose sacrificial gifts have supplied us with the tools necessary to handle the extra snow that God has given to us this winter!
Our skid-steer is a great tool to move snowbanks further back, giving the plow more areas to move snow. Although not pictured, our brand new plow truck has been a great blessing. Maintaining the property is an essential element of our gospel work! Thank you for partnering with us to share the precious news of the Gospel with these teens.
It causes a lot of work, but we are thankful for the snow. Much like the rainbow that gives us a reminder of God's promise not to flood the earth again, the snow on the ground gives us a constant reminder of three elements of the Gospel message that we have been called to share with our students.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
1. The blemished are in need of snow-white cleansing.
2. The blood of Christ is the agent of snow-white cleansing.
3. The brilliancy of God’s glory is reflected in our snow-white cleansing.
Every time we may be tempted to complain about shoveling the mountains of snow, let us remind ourselves of the biblical picture of thorough cleansing that is offered through the blood of Jesus Christ on our behalf. It is this snow-white cleansing that David sought and the same cleansing that each of us need so desperately. Please pray for us as we strive to teach the cleansing power of Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice on the cross to our students!
