From StoneHouse Ministries International these are the StoneHouse Chronicles; The life and happenings of a gathered people living as disciples in Nakuru, Kenya. Our name is from the passage found in 1 Peter 2:4,5....'Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.'
Well; here’s the last page in this section of building the
StoneHouse gathering place. It will be short. I wanted to finish this part so
anyone can go all the way through the building process with us. The post
bringing you up to where we are currently is Here.
After selecting and preparing the poles (painting the base
with used motor oil) we begin to put them in the ground and start ‘tamping’ the
stones around the base of the pole.
Getting the right height is accomplished with only a string
line and a twelve inch level because that’s all we had. Each post has to then be
put in the hole, measured, taken out and cut to size.
The next step is taking the sawn wood from the mill and
putting up the two inch by three inch top plate that the trusses for the roof will
eventually sit on. Finally we attached the side timbers for the iron sheets or
wood planks to be nailed to.
Once this is done we are ready to begin installing the trusses
for the roof. Again you can see how far we have currently come by going Here.
next page will begin interviews with the men who are building our meeting place and how our Father is building us together through working together. In other words we will begin to write about
building the StoneHouse and not just what the StoneHouse will gather in.Bwana asi fiwi.
