The Home Stretch

The Lord blessed us with a very productive summer. Progress on the new building moved forward as planned and now we are entering the home stretch.

As soon as we finish the siding, roof the front porch, and set the steeple, the outside of the building will be complete. Then we can get the parking lot ready and start landscaping. For the restrooms we need to lay the tile, set the sinks and toilets, install the grab bars, hang the mirrors, etc.

We also need to complete the entryway. Because this area sits beneath the “base flood elevation” we need to use all flood resistant materials. Primarily this means sheets of hardiplank siding instead of sheet rock. That will all need to be hung, floated, and painted this fall. Of course, we also have all the “punch list” type things to do as well.

If anyone would like to schedule a mission trip to help finish up the building, we could use your help. We have had a wonderful response and a tremendous amount of help thus far, but we do not have any teams on the calendar at this point to finish things up.
