Dear friends and prayer partners! Our prayers are always with you praying and hoping that the Lord is keeping you well in Him at all times. What a privilege it is to be part of the work that the Lord is doing here in Kenya. It is also a great privilege to partner with you in prayer and financial support and watch the Lord provide!
The Lord has continued to answer our prayers and provide for our needs especially in the building of the Tommy Nelson Center (TNC) at the Serve Compound in Ukunda! We are happy to announce that the second phase of the TNC has been completed and we trust God that the momentum will continue. It was in March that I sent the update about the completion of the first Phase and here we are in June all done with the second Phase. The Second phase involved the building of the walls on the bottom floor. The Lord provided all the $15,000 that we needed for that phase.
We are thankful that the Lord has provided for us thus far and we continue to pray that He will provide the needed funds to continue on to Phase 3. Just in the last few weeks HE has already provided $10,000 of the $20,000 needed for this Phase! Because of the material and the labor involved, it is very costly to put a cement slab roof/first floor..PRAY With us that the Lord will continue to put it in the hearts of His people to give generously and prayerfully towards this project!
If the Lord puts it in your heart to give towards this project, please write a check to Denton Bible Church and indicate on the MEMO line the following number 9690-51. (If mailing please mail to: Denton Bible Church, Attn: Serve Office, 2300 E. University Dr. Denton, TX 76209)
Below are the pictures of the TNC Phase 2 Work - Enjoy and PRAY! Thank you very Much!
This is where the first Phase ended and the 2nd Phase began. We had to bring in 10,000 bricks to build the outer walls, and to partition 4 offices and 2 class rooms that open up to be one mini hall.
Many blocks were needed to finish the first Phase
The Walls are starting to come up...they had to put the first course all around and then start to build up. It was very exciting to see the FIRST block go up!
The walls and the partitioning of the inside wall. The black pipes coming out of the floors are for the electrical wires
View from the outside - It is beginning to look like a real building:)
Work in progress!
You can actually see the windows now! The big windows are going to be great with the heat here. We are going to have good lighting and air circulating breeze in the building! For all of you who have been here you know thats a BIG deal!
The office walls are all up and here the classroom walls are going up! This is an exciting sight and reminder of the Lord's goodness!
And finally the second phase is done!!!!! The wood on the walls is the frame to pour the concrete pillars!
