The day has arrived. At 3:00p.m. Approximately 80 supporters of the Eastridge Mission Center gathered to break ground.
Teachers, community leaders, members of EBC and just people who love Eastridge. The ceremony began with my (pastor Mike Garman) opening remarks and welcome. The Karen adult and youth choir each sung a song. Words of encouragement were offered by Leigh Fuller representing Highplains Food Bank and Kid Cafe, Bounheng former pastor of First Laotian Baptist Church, Dawe Po Associate Pastor Eastridge Baptist Church and Myself.
Those who turned soil were: Wanda Perkins EBC member, Bounheng member FLBC, Sounthaly Thinakhone Pastor FLBC, Dawe Assoc. Pastor EBC and Jane Dougherty Eastridge Elementary, Leigh Fuller Highplains Foodbank and myself.
Butch Brooks deacon of EBC closed in prayer.
I just have to mention a special moment. As we set there the wind picked up. On the south side of the block a rather large whirlwind formed and moved north near us. I believe with all my heart that was a sign from God. I think He was saying "I'm here, I know the job is big, but I've got this."
Enjoy the photos of a really amazing day!
