Building update

We are really advancing on the building. God has greatly blessed. We are about out of money though. I really thought we had enough money to complete the bottom level but due to some financial problems, we are lacking. From the start of constuction our exchange rate has dropped over 10%. The price of cement went up from $10 a sac to $13. $3 doesn’t seem like much until you calculate how many sacks we have used. I bet we have used more than 500.   That is a $1,500 loss.  Ouch.  The price of iron has also gone up about 10%.  The gravel and sand that we use for building also went up.  Because of the rain, they couldn’t travel to where they normally get these two things.  Their prices went up about 15% or more.  I am not complaining, just letting you know why we are about out of money when we said a certain amount should cover it.  The work will have to stop.  I was really wanting to finish the first floor, but in God’s timing I know we will.  We have all the iron and wood bought.  We just need to get cement, sand and rock to finish it out.  I am not sure the price of what we will need.  I am trying to calculate what we need.
