Permit Class

Here is a shot of our churches "Permit Class" for refugees that want to learn how to drive and be prepared for the test. So far around 25 people have been there. We have a fantastic team of volunteers who have tackled the ESL (English Second Language) part of our work with the incoming refugees. Between the Tutoring class and this Permit Class, they are neck deep in the challenge...thank God for loving, serving Christians that take time to lend a helping hand to those in need. We hope to include a once a month "Car maintenance" class that will help refugees learn all about cars and the general maintenance that is required to keep one in good shape. So if you are interested...let's talk. All basic knowledge is new knowledge for most of them...from what is an air conditioner, to pumping gas, oil changes, cruise control, tire presure, etc...plenty to teach.

Wow! It's so easy to say you love people. It's quite another thing entirely to show it in action. God has truly gifted the ministry of Jacob's Well to love people in action, in every way, not just spiritual.

It's awesome the way the guy driving by the building told you about the paint. When we're doing His work, God has a way of providing for us and multiplying our resources, even when we aren't looking. Awesome, awesome, awesome! :):):)
