CBM Build Site Below is a note from CBM missionary church planters Ed and Cheryl Bunt. Dear Friends, The roof is on! We had a wonderful week with some of our CBM builders and some volunteers. We personally enjoyed spending time with these friends. They were so encouraging and fun! With campers in the park downtown, builders going to the hardware store, and neighbors spreading the word, the project at Calvary created curiosity and big news in Chatsworth. Along with that came opportunities and contacts. One man came to watch a couple of days while a man from across the street worked on the roof along with the crew for 2 afternoons. Someone donated some roofing supplies. A neighbor came with a cake to help feed everyone, a former member brought 2 meals, and an elderly Catholic lady brought brownies. The best part of that is that a builder’s wife … Read More

I never did take that nap, instead, I listened to Rebekah and meditated on those words.
In the Krueger house, we generally design the cars for speed. And this year was no different. Time was not on our side, so we did the basics. We didn’t bake the wood to remove 10% water weight. We didn’t polish the axels or sand the wheels. But we did put optimize the weight by putting 3 ounces of weight in the back of the car. All the cars were set to run on 3 wheels, then we spun the wheels while adding graphite. There are so many little tips and tricks to optimize the car for speed. I also had the opportunity to help with 4 other cars. The biggest highlight was helping our 4-year-old neighbor build his first car. Our neighbor took 2nd in his division. Nathanael was in that division and didn’t place. Luke lost to his sister again and ended up taking 3rd place. And Amanda took … Read More
