Painting Project DONE =)

We had a great turn out today from the young adults from Smiley's (First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks) for our painting day at Forte's Auto & Boat Shop (the GTD office is on the 2nd floor). Thank you Smiley's crew!!!



Happy Memorial Day

On behalf of a thankful ministry, GTD would like to express our undying appreciation for the great men & women & their families who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our liberty. We respect, love, & salute you! We pray God's blessing & comfort upon the family & close friends of those who lost their loved ones for our nation. Thank you. It was not in vain. Happy Memorial Day.

God Is GTD'n With YOU!

I'm so glad we have a God who says, "I AM GOING THE DISTANCE WITH YOU!":

"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:6


GTD Recycles

It's that time of the month... recycling drop-off time. These dog food bags come in handy when it's time to transfer the recyclables out of their bins at the GTD office & take them to the drop-off. I pre-sort the recyclables into the correct category as I put them in each bag. Once I get to the drop-off I fit the whole bag through the container openings & dump out. Then I store the bags again for the next visit. Only takes a few minutes & it works great.

All the Tampa Covenient Church Fathers & Sons enjoyed a God-awesome retreat full of fun with plenty of Godly moments laced throughout.

LOVE this picture from our Father & Son Retreat with Tampa Covenant Church. I can't think of a better picture that captures the way God intended it =)

Not many things bond sons with their dads more than shared adventures... especially spontaneous ones =)
