Upper Level Construction

Much has happened in Bukasa in the past few weeks.  As I reported in early November, we received our grant request of $8500 to help Pastor George finish the upper level classroom, office, and latrine.  Shortly after the grant came through, a property owner in the village offered his land to Pastor George for a discounted price and even proposed delayed payments.  If accepted, it meant the upper level construction would be delayed.  It also meant the purchase of neighboring buildings to expand the school would be postponed (Sept 29 blog).  

However, on such short notice, we could not accumulate funds for the down payment on the property, nor could we commit to the balloon payments required in 6 months, and again in 12 months.  Wisely, PG turned down the opportunity, and trusting God’s leading, poured his full attention into completing the upper level project.  At this point the purchase of the existing 4 buildings is also on hold until after the upper level construction.

The photos posted here represent only a few days of work.  The project should be finished (roof, plastered walls, doors, windows) for the opening of the new school year, Feb. 2nd. 
We are thankful for the Lord’s continued provision and we thank you for your continued giving and loyal support. Your generosity is impacting an entire community.  May God’s favor and blessings pour upon you in 2015.
