PAGE COUNTY, VA.—
William Turner is unlike many others. He is an inmate with the Page County Jail, but is so much more.
While serving time, he turned his detail-oriented skills into a passion. He created a replica log cabin out of of ordinary materials.
“Then the Sheriff asked me…I don’t know if he was joking or not, but he said, ‘Can you make a church?’ and I said, ‘Well I guess I can,'” said William Turner.
After extensive research, Turner created a one foot tall church, filled with pews, a bible and even an organ.
“The materials that are made with this log cabin church are just made with materials that I found in the trash,” said Turner.
Paper bags, cardboard and even old Christmas lights.
“I took those materials and gave them a new purpose. Then I realized that’s what God does for us,” said Turner.
