So much building going on in the mission, prayerfully we would always pray that the biggest growth would be in the hearts and minds of people we are reaching. Of course, some physical construction is also required.
Certainly the biggest project going on right now, is the office building. Fundraising on this has been very slow, please pray for us on that, as we can't really afford to slow down...we need this built ASAP, plus since we are using a contractor, taking a break isn't good either. Once the contractor is done, we will still have to build out the actually offices and meeting spaces. They are nearing being able to pour the first floor up there in the air...it is a lot of work.
As you can see below, to have a pastor's meeting right now means coordinating when teams aren't here, and to have their wives together...they had to use a bedroom downstairs. Having these dedicated spaces we plan to use on a much more regular basis...when working around teams wouldn't work.

Thanks to again special donations for church planting, the congregation in Danli is working hard on their church building as well. Again...going with a second floor to go vertical in the future rather than a traditional roof, for the same reasons as Talanga.
We should have enough funds to finish replacing the small building, and hopefully make at least some improvements to the house there as well, maybe an actual bathroom, safer exterior walls, and eventually...a second floor there as well for Sunday School rooms? We shall see.
There is still work left to be done in Cantarranas (below) for the Milk Project building...doors, windows, bars on the windows, building out the kitchen with sink, etc. and then the appliances will need to be purchased.
We hope to use groups to do more work as well, maybe pouring some concrete for a good place to play outside.
I don't have a recent picture of the new exam spaces being built in the clinic, but those are proceeding as well, and work to install the equipment in the new clinic buildings in Las Botijas and Sampedrana, as well as on the farm in Cantarranas...you get the idea.
Lots going on...this is just sharing the construction side! Pray all of us in Honduras would be able to proceed apace, where the funds have already been received, and where the funds need yet to come, for good stewardship, and sharing His love during, around, and through that construction!
