my new 10 foot pram that I just finished building today. It is built out of 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch marine grade plywood covered inside and out with with 12 oz fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin, two layers on the bottom, the seats have 11 cubic feet of poured in place styrofoam, making it unsinkable, it has nice, sturdy 8 foot oars, a very nice Garmin fish finder, and a 50 lb thrust Minn Kota electric motor, on a nice little trailer that I built. Ican’t wait to take it fishing.
I enjoy building things. We are just about finished remodeling a house that the church owns for a parsonage for a staff person and his wife, and I have enjoyed that very much, I am remodeling the big 24 foot dory that I built last year to make it more sea worthy, I am just about finished with the 16X22 foot wall tent I am building, and I have plans for a 3 wheeled car that I am going to start on soon.
My all time favorite thing though is to help Jesus on His building project. In Matthew 16:18 He says that He is building His Church, “I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hell will not overpower it.” The cool thing is I get to help, and He blesses me in this life when I do, and He rewards me when I get to heaven for what I have done to make His church healthy and holy. Any disciple of Jesus is invited to help.
