Project Joy Pictures

We have added a new slideshow of current pictures from Project Joy.  You can find it to your left on our home page and also on our Photo Gallery page.  Check back now and then as we will be adding more pictures of projects as they progress. Also - not for the "faint-of-heart", we will be adding another photo album with ALL the Project Joy pictures for those of you that would like more detail.  Currently, we have over 300 pictures to document the entire Project. We encourage you to take the time to view either photo album and then take the opportunity to Praise the Lord for what He has done!!  To God be the Glory for Great Things He has done!
