We did our best to Floor it today!

This is where we started this morning. We had the gang here at 6:00 am sharp but then our finishing crew did not show up until almost 8:00. They not only finish the concrete but they also level it and float it. So we were stuck until they came. Then they were only a half crew and we had a crew and a half. But all went well and we got floors in two of the three dorm buildings today. They really look nice. The sealer is on and they are a beautiful red color. Praise God for his faithfulness in the middle of trials. Anthony got the honors of bringing in the first wheelbarrow load. One of the construction students trying his hand at wheeling concrete.

This is the construction site at it's best. Everyone has a job just the way Brian always has it planned. Here is one of the finishers running the power trowel. Here is the finished product. Tomorrow we will finish with all the floors in the dorm rooms and the Chapel Praise God for his provision of money just in time so we can finish these four buildings in the next couple of months. Stayed tuned for the upcoming action.

Praise God we are moving forward on the New Base Project

Praise God for His faithfulness during the last year and a half of construction. We feel we are finally turning the corner in this project. The only one detail that is giving us some challege is the financing to finish. We could really use $25,000 immediately to help us finish the the three dorm rooms and the chapel in the next two months. Please prayerfully consider what God would be asking of you to help finish this job on time. Thanks again for all your support We have been working inside most of the month of May because we had rain almost every day. So we concentrated on getting the dorm rooms done as much as possible. We have them ready for floors. The electrical tubes are in the floors and the wire mesh is down and now we just have to pour and finish them. We are hoping to do that in the next couple of weeks. If you would like to help us with this part of the project we need roughly $5,000 to make it possible. You can also see that we are in need of doors and windows. The windows for the dorms and chapel cost $5,000 installed and the doors about $3,000. We could really use your help. As you can see the bathroom walls are all in place. We have them all plastered except where we will be installing ceramic tile. We also worked on this during the rainy season. It will cost us approximately $5,000 to finish six bathrooms with 2 showers, 2 toliets and 2 sinks in each one. Maybe you could help us with one or more?? Last and not least we have started working on the septic system again since the rain has subsided. Myron Mullet will be returning the end of July to install everything and make sure it is working properly.
