Boston....Part 1

Frequently featured on HGTV's House Hunter's Show is the little town of Hyde Park, situated right outside of downtown Boston. It's also the home of Boston Baptist College. It's pristine streets of century old homes are million dollar delights. It truly encompasses everything New England. 

On our recent trip to Boston, our church invested some time, money and sweat equity into the campus of Boston Bible College. Let me be clear from the get go...I've never worked harder in my life that I did those days. Here's pictures of the work we did...(and there are a lot of them...but I took over 800 so please understand that I can't help myself) and also some pictures of our site seeing. We are a group the can work hard and play hard.
