Construction has started again, Praise the Lord.

I wish that I could explain how much joy is in my heart. I felt that my heart was about to bust as I was buying some granite to begin the construction. I want to share with you a miracle that God has done. Last week I got an e-mail from a man and his wife(they wish to remain anonymous). He told me that he couldn’t get the picture of the foundation out of his head and felt that God wanted him to help. He asked me how much I felt that the bottom floor would cost. I told him that I felt that it would cost about $25,000 for the structure and another $5,000 for the extras(benches, electricity, etc.) He wrote me back and told me that a check for $25,000 was in the mail. Praise the Lord. We are starting again and thrilled. God has truly blessed this work more than we can imagine.

The church members worked on Monday and Tuesday and will return to work again tomorrow. We were hauling dirt back in to get the foundation ready to pour the floor. We had almost 20 people working together. We are literally moving the dirt back in one wheelbarrow at a time.  I know that many of you have prayed for Salif.  He is in the picture below loading the wheelbarrow.
