CARL JUNCTION, MO.--- After teaching art for 26 years, a Carl Junction teacher has come out of retirement for a good cause. Marv Dahmen has been working for 5 months to transform the children's area at Christian Church in Carl Junction.

He turned boring white walls, into a large mural. He also remodeled the hallways to look like ancient Jerusalem with painted brick walls. He says the area is now inviting to children, and they can look forward to coming to Sunday school.

"We want the kids to feel like they're in church. This will help get their mind on God," said Marv Dahmen, Artist.

Marv says most of the supplies was donated. He was shocked when the redesign only cost $32.
