As we have reported, the Weyerhaeuser Corporation has funded five housing units on the NVM compound. They also sent a team down for the past two weeks to start the construction process. During their first two week trip they brought two of the buildings to the stage where they are water tight and locked. And they had the help of two groups from Wheatland Church and Gracepoint Church. They waited patiently for the containers to be released through customs and worked through three days of storms caused by Hurricane Sandy. They were impressive teams!
Here is a look at the buildings. The building on the left is one of two medical staff houses near the new hospital. The building on the right is one of three intern staff houses in the mission team compound.
Construction on these two buildings will continue. And we have all the materials on the compound to construct all five buildings!
A special thanks goes out to the Weyerhaeuser Corporation and the team members who came to work. And also, thanks to the two teams from Wheatland and Gracepoint. The photo on the left is the ceremony to pass the keys of the enclosed and locked buildings to Pastor Pierre. The photo on the right is the Weyerhaeuser team.
One can only think about the future ministry that will occur on the NVM compound. So many medical teams and interns will come and go doing God’s work here. These housing units will play a vital role in that process. We are so grateful!
