Second Story floor poured!!

What was supposed to be a early morning pour soon turned into an early afternoon pour. I think the first truck arrived around 12:00 pm. Because we were pouring the second level floor we needed to use a concrete pump. It wasn't exactly the easiest pour either because of re-rod and electrical tubing. The finished product. Another rustic red floor. Cristian, Melvin and Anthony puting on the first coat of sealer. Praise God we have good this far this quick. We are still hoping to be able to move into the first floor in March. Pray that all the needed funds will come in, in time to finish on schedule.

Progress continues despite lots of rain!

We are now ready to start plastering inside and out on the first floor. We are planning to pour the second story floor this week and then start putting the roof on the front entrance area and the back entrance area. Continue to pray the funds will keep flowing and we will be able to finish the downstairs area before march.

Beginning the final phase of Construction!

As you can see we are beginning the final phase of making this dream come true. It has been a time of learning to depend on our supplier, who is God himself. It hasn't always been easy and we have had our battles and continue to feel the opposition of our enemy, but we are learning to lean on God and to keep our eyes fixed on him. We still have a ways to go and need your help and support. First of all we need for you to just pray for perserverence. It is always easy to start new projects, but it takes the strength of God to complete what He has given us to do. So could you join us in prayer to see this project through to the end. Second we still could use some funds to complete the work. God has a plan and purpose in this as well. Maybe God is calling you to help us finish what He has asked us to start. If so we would love to hear from you. You could contact Lowell Troyer at (cell)809-710-8879 or (e-mail) or call the SI office at 559-627-8923. We would love to hear from you and hear how God is using you to further His Kingdom in this present World. Thanks to all of you that have genenerously responded to God's call by responding financially and have made this become a reality. Blessings in Christ, Lowell Troyer SI/DR Field Director
