Update for 5/16/2018

In our construction, we have continued with the planned work and have made great progress. We are now 95% done with the multipurpose room and have begun installing the roof. All of the walls are built, and we are seeing good progress in our water and sewer installations. In our ministries, the pastor together with the church continues to work hard to evangelize the people in the community. The church has carried out activities both for children and adults, though services are still being held in homes and until the construction is ready. However, even with the limited space, three faith statements have been made and children continue to come to church. We have faced some challenges in the past few months. Unfortunately, there have been delays due to accidents to some workers. However, we have been able to keep moving forward, and we have even been able to get discounts on some materials with God’s help. In the next few months, we expect all of the rough construction work to be completed and we expect the windows to begin to be installed. We will also begin the electrical installation. We want to tell you that our affection towards you is eternal and that our prayers for you do not cease.
