SOUTH-EAST CORNER OF UNDER-CONSTRUCTION MISSIONARY INDEPENDENT SPIRITUAL CHURCH
January is a rainy, cold, wet month in Northern california, and not good weather for carpentering, so progress on the church building has been slow of late.
Roger Rupe, our carpenter, is taking a break, but Don, our painter and stone mason says that cool, damp weather is perfect for laying bricks, because the cement mortar cures more evenly under such climatic conditions.
Not that he wants to be out in the rain working, either.
The bricks he is using to edge the walkway around the church are all old, recycled bricks, which means that the old mortar must be taken off by hand, a bick at a time, so that's what he is doing. And when it warms up a bit, but is still cool enough, he'll be laying flagstone for the walk -- with little terra cotta stars between the stones -- and edging it all with bricks, and we shall have our walkway.
Meanwhile, back at his own home, where he can stay out of the rain, Roger is building two side-chapels for the church, places to hold our overflow candles, and to house the call-to-worship gong and some large statuary.
