So sorry I’m getting this letter out late. April and this month have been super busy with the continuing construction of the new building for the Calvary Baptist Mission Church, full counseling load, pastors class, etc. Time just got away from me. Anita stays as busy as I do. We are doing well except that I am coming down with bad cold; happens about twice per year. We are looking forward to our 40th wedding anniversary in a few weeks. I will write more about that next month.
All of the drywall is hung and “mudded” with only a little bit of sanding left to do. I’ve done most of the electrical wiring also; it is almost finished. The first floor has the primer coat of paint and this Saturday we will be painting the ceilings. Next week we hope to get the tile floors down. Looking for “special prices” on floor tile. I and a few from the church are doing the work to save money. Some days I am the only one there to work because the others have regular jobs they must be faithful to. Though construction is advancing well it is going slower than anticipated. We have just enough to finish the first and second floor with paint and tile. It will take about $10,000.00 to finish the third floor and $2000.00 to plaster, paint and tile the exterior and install the windows. We are in the home stretch and the Lord has been so good to us in providing the financial help when it is needed. Maybe someone would like to give one final offering. Anita and I, and the folks of the mission are so very thankful to all of you that have had a part in this project.
I traveled to Huaral (north of Lima) for a missions conference. Had a good time and hopefully a lot of folks are stirred up for missions. Thank you and may God continue to richly bless you all. Until next month.
