In our last update, we asked prayer for God to provide the $10,000 needed for the roof. In the month of December, about half of those funds trickled in. Then, just this week, one of our supporting churches pledged the remaining amount. Praise the Lord!
As of today, the upstairs floor is poured, upstairs walls are almost finished and the steel structure for the roof is up. We will stay busy on other projects while waiting for bids for the sheet metal. The goal is to move the church upstairs by the end of January. Lord willing, in February we will demolish the old building and prepare the downstairs floor. In March, we are anticipating two possible work teams to help with sheet rock work. Please pray that the Lord works out those details.
Credit cards may offer you cash back or reward points on all your purchases, but God has an even better offer – fruit that abounds to your heavenly account (Phil. 4:17)!
Thank you for the generous gifts toward the building fund many of you have already given this year! 100% of those funds have been spent on building supplies. By God’s grace, all the labor has been given voluntarily either from work teams from supporting churches or from our church people themselves.

As of today, we are almost ready to pour the floor for the second floor and then it will be ready for the metal roof. We need to go ahead and purchase all the materials for the roof this month so that it will be ready to install in January. That will cost about $10,000 to complete. Would you pray about giving toward this need this Christmas, whether as an individual, family, Sunday School class or church?

Thank you for prayerfully considering giving toward this need to help the project move forward!
The men of the church met last week to discuss the feasibility of finishing the building by our April inauguration date. We believe it is possible, but we need your prayers for God’s provision of labor and funds. We need block masons to help raise the walls on the second floor and those who have experience with drywall to install the partitions for the classrooms. Would you pray about these needs?
We have the windows, doors, stairs and the sub-floor already paid for! Praise God! By mid-December, we need to purchase all the materials for the metal roof on the second floor. That will cost about $10,000 to complete.
- November – 2nd floor block walls & columns
- December – pour slabs on 1st & 2nd floors
- January – install metal roof
- February – drywall installation
- March – tile & paint
- April 2016 – inaugurate new building!
We thank the Lord for how He continues to provide for the building project so we can move forward. Below are the next projects we hope to complete as God provides:
