The words of the spiritual are:

I’m a working on building
I’m a working on building
I’m a working on building
For my Lord, for my Lord

It’s a holy ghost building
It’s a holy ghost building
It’s a holy ghost building
For my Lord, for my Lord

Recently our team from Floris UMC had the pleasure of working on TWO buildings and although they weren’t to become churches (as the song lyrics relate) they were definitely “for our Lord.”

Patty and David and their daughter, Lisa (along with her children) essentially “lost” both of their homes during Super Storm Sandy. In the interim they bunked with another family member for a while, but after a couple of weeks of 15 people, no electricity, and only one bathroom they had to find alternate arrangements. But 18+ months later both Patty, David, Lisa and her children are “almost home.” We’re blessed to say we contributed significantly to that by dry walling, mudding, and painting the lower level of both homes.

Patty and David were out of town to attend a graduation on Saturday, but we had full access to their house and they were overjoyed with the progress made during their absence. Patty’s excitement and happiness reminded me of that of a young child’s on Christmas morning.

In addition to our six team members, Patty, Dave, and their daughter Lisa joined us for our team picture. Lisa is in front and Patty and Dave are in the center back. They were our blessings for this trip. When we prayed in a circle with them the last day of work, we all felt very blessed to have been a part of their lives.

We were most privileged to have “worked on buildings for our Lord.”
