Today was the official groundbreaking for the Central Texas Hospitality House. With over 60 people in attendance, it’s safe to say the kickoff was a huge success. Energy and excitement were aplenty as many in the crowd were seeing dreams that were years in the making come to fruition. The pictures show the joy of those most involved with making this day happen. I’d like to think their smiles resemble what Moses must have looked like when he came down from Mount Sinai after the Lord had given him instructions and a vision for building the Tabernacle. Scripture says that Moses wasn’t even aware just how radiant his face was because he had spoken with the Lord.
We can only hope and pray the Hospitality House receives a blessing similar to that which the Lord placed on the Tabernacle. We pray that “every skilled person to whom the Lord has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the Lord has commanded.” (Exodus 36:1) We pray we may hear the same words reported to Moses by his workers, “The people are bringing more than enough for doing the work the Lord commanded to be done.” (Exodus 36:5) And finally, we pray when it’s all said and done that the glory of the Lord will come fill the Hospitality House just as it did the Tabernacle upon its completion.
