清理教会新地 Cleaning the church land
On Nov. 2017, we found a company who can help us to clean all the trees on the church land with $6000, which is a very good price for us. Because if we asked Tree-Cutting company to cut the forest, it will cost us about $40,000-80,000, praise the Lord for such a big saving!
Afterward, our congregation came to the land to pick up the branches and roots. We are so grateful!
Also, thanks to Stewart Farmers Company to help us to plant the grass seeds. Praise the Lord! [please watch the video below]
感谢主！我们找到一家land cleaning 公司，只需6000美金来清理我们将近4英亩的树木，如果找砍树公司的话，每棵树要价200-600不等，我们这里至少有200棵树，需要4-8万左右。但是现在我们省了很多。感谢主恩！
