NEW CONFERENCE CENTER CONSTRUCTION
In October 2002 Harry Rittenhouse brought a group from Ohio to begin construction of our New
Conference Center next to our Volunteer's Building. They were able to pour the footer and lay 3 layers of blocks on top of the footer with the help of some Haitian block masons we hired. Since then we were able to fill in the open spaces inside the footer walls with rock and sand making it ready to begin pouring the concrete floor in February.
Harry returned the February 16th with Maurice Smith to begin work again. On the 19th we hired a company to deliver redi-mix concrete to pour the floor. We also rented their cement pump which reached out and over the top of our trees to pour the cement in exactly the places we wanted it as the redi-mix trucks brought the concrete to us.
We borrowed a troweling machine from David Heady, a missionary friend from up the road, and Maurice began to smooth out the floor before the pour was even finished. Everyone is very impressed with the Good Job being done and in such a short period of time.
We are doing all of this by faith. Would you like to help us with the cost of this construction??? If so, please send your designated gift to the address listed above.
In His Love,
George and Christine Braidwood
