Day 12 | Kenton Morlan

Today was a great day. I got to go to the house again today and we finished the inside of the house. I didn't get to spend my whole day on the inside so i also got to sift some sand. Well the roof and carpenter crew showed up and started putting the doors windows and roof on. So they got about half the roof on and the main boss of the cement and brick called me outside and i had to go and hand him blocks, so i got to move blocks yet again. Well just handing him bricks wasn't enough haha. He then began to teach me how to take the blocks and a chipping hammer and break the blocks so they would fit in between the roof and the wall. That started off pretty tricky but i soon mastered the technique and finished it. The work wasn't super hard or straining but i got to meet the mother and two kids of the house we are building, such an amazing and inspiring woman. The story she told me about how her husband is a middle school teacher here in a public school and he doesn't get paid. But they both work hard to send their daughter to private school so she can have a good education. They plan to do the exact same for the baby boy when the time comes. My heart goes out to that family. This is why i love my Lord, the people you meet the inspiring stories and the opportunity to comfort those in need. 1 Cor 1:4 says, “Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” God is God of all and has my life and wherever he calls me is where i shall go. My god is great and with him nothing is impossible. Keep us in your prayers for strength and to keep our hearts and minds in the right place. I continue to pray for everyone back home i miss everyone and thank you Debbie and Preston for the messages of encouragement. I love you all and thank God for the people in my life. God bless you all and i love you.


  1. I like reading your blogs...God is at work through each of you on the team. We miss you and look forward to seeing you Sunday. We are praying for you...May God continue to provide you health, strength, and new insights in His ways. Hugs, love and continued prayers. We are glad they didn't trade you for a cow...although now it will be vegetable soup rather than vegetable beef soup this winter!

  2. Kenton, your testimony stirred my heart. I praise the Lord that you are there serving Him. You are so special to me. Hallelujah!

  3. Sounds like you have had a great week. Good job bro.
