Tiny church of Yuma.

Tiny Church - Pause Rest Worship

Field review by the editors.

Yuma, Arizona

This diminutive chapel was built in 1995 by farmer Loren Pratt on the edge of his fields along the road, in honor of his deceased wife Lois. It measures 8 ft. x 12 ft. inside. A sign on the dirt road that leads to the church reads: "Stop, Rest, Worship."

In September 2011, a freak microburst storm flung it 60 ft., crushing the steeple and losing a wall. The Pratt family have since reconstructed to the same dimensions -- with six tiny pews seating twelve worshippers.
