Augment: Our “Extreme Home Makeover” here in Childress is coming along nicely. Read about it here and here. This week we’re hoping the new electricity, plumbing & heat/air will all be done. The house is totally gutted and we’re ready to do something other than demolition. Soon we’ll be starting windows, roof and floors. Everyday someone calls or comes by and asks, “When can we do something?” I love how the community has surrounded this project and volunteered to help. We have been blessed to have professional plumbers, electricians, roofers, etc. who have donated their time and supplies to the Augment house. In fact yesterday, I met with Childress Lumber company to ask if they’d be willing to “help” us with the materials for the roof. I was just hoping they’d give us a discount on the materials we needed. Thirty minutes later, they called and said, “We’ll donate all of it!” Pretty sweet. Also the sweet lady that is to receive this house has been working with us the whole time. Not sure anyone could have found a better “recipient” for the first Augment house.
Rangers Game: Lea asked me on Monday, “Don’t you think we need to go to a Rangers playoff game?” She’s not only cute, but she’s smart too. So now we’ve got tickets to Saturday’s game in Arlington. Yes!

Ran Across this Story: It is STILL absolutely, positively my favorite story EVER! I want to live what this little girl sings.
Honduras Jesus Banquet: It was Jesus who said in Luke 14:12-13, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, don’t invite your friends and family and relatives and rich neighbors… instead … when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.” I’m excited about this year’s Jesus Banquet that will take place at the dump in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. This is the second annual Jesus Banquet. The date for the banquet is December 8th. The dump is a horrible place where people spend their days searching for things they can eat or sell. Our goal someday is to help get these poor people out of the dump because God never intended people and trash to go together. The good news today is that today Marc Tindall and his friends will be going to the dump to feed hungry people. While they won’t be having a banquet today, they will be feeding hungry people.
Have a blessed day…. Trey
