February 2020 Newsletter & Updates

February 11, 2020 Update,

We are so grateful for all who gave generously last year! Can you believe? your giving totaled over $90,000?? We have made progress and we are moving forward!! We are so thankful for God’s provision!

We had some unexpected fees (Engineer $2500) for the final process of finalizing the zoning and change of use portion. We also had to hire an architect ($2800 to start as per city building dept.) to do an analysis to bring the building up to code. We were able to get the heating, air conditioning, and demolition/dumpster done since our last letter. We are still about $40,000 dollars away just to move in before we start Phase Two.

Thanks to your generosity in giving, we accomplished the following so far:

  • A brand new roof!
  • Trees and brush trimmed or removed!
  • Alarm repaired with new cameras installed outside!
  • New lighting outside!
  • New fencing and repairs!
  • ( DONE since our last update) New heating and A/C units!
  • ( DONE since our last update) Demolition of walls and use of dumpster!

Things we still need to complete in Phase One for us to be able to move into the new building

  • Plumbing fixtures and new water lines installed
  • Broken glass repaired and new entrance as per code
  • Flooring & Painting
  • (JUST ADDED AS PER ARCHITECT) – possibly another bathroom and outside ramp

Here are three ways you can help us:

  1. PRAY that all these needs get met so we can serve our city in a more effective way.
  2. GIVE financially a tax deductible donation. 100% of your giving will go directly to the needs listed above.
  3. SERVE as a skilled laborer with the renovations.

Will you stand with us as we believe God hears our cries and will faithfully provide ALL that is needed? We need your prayers and appreciate your generosity! No amount is too small. Thank you!
