Ron and Sandy Cornell have been missionary builders since 2007 after thirty years in the work world. Ron was able to retire early while still “young enough” to keep up with Brent Howard. The Cornells share, “It has been rewarding, and we would do it  again! The Lord has blessed us with good health, good retirement, a truck and 5th wheel. It has been our privilege to serve the churches we have worked on. We have been part of approximately 17 projects, some longer than others but all rewarding. The places we have seen and the people we have worked with are priceless. Ron will be 70 this August and plans to retire from full-time building, but will occasionally come give Brent a hand. This past year we celebrated our 50th anniversary by going to see the production of Jesus at Sight and Sound. We now enjoy winters in Florida and keep busy helping with electrical problems, so we will spend more time in Florida. Our three  children, their spouses and nine grandchildren keep us coming back to Fulton, NY. It has been a privilege and a blessing to work with Brent and Michele Howard and all the volunteers. Our challenge would be to men who retire early to come work with us. You won’t be sorry!”
