So for the rest of this week and next the Oasis is closed (something that happens very, very rarely) and we've joined the team every day to smash down walls, knock out doorframes, chip ancient tiles off floors and walls, fill in lots of holes (and make many new ones), and transport countless wheelbarrow-loads of rubble to the local tip.
Thankfully, miraculously, we appear to be on target to have everything ready for Martin and his building team when they arrive on Sunday!
To end this week's blog I've put together a couple of short slideshows of photos taken amongst the rubble this week. Hope it helps you 'get the picture' and encourages you to pray for us, the Oasis staff, and especially for the CBC building team as they make their long, long journey through some pretty treacherous weather conditions, from Corsham to southern Austria this weekend. Please pray also for the refugees here who will surely miss the warmth, friendship and loving welcome the Oasis always provides for them.
So until next week its goodbye from a pair of rather weary amateur 'property developers.' Thank God 'normal ministry' will be resuming before too long!
We love and miss you all lots
Lesley and Neal
