We have roughly $80,000 in the bank for the roof. We’re close! There is, however, a bit of chicken-and-egg problem right now. In order to determine the type of roof we get (slate or metal), and in order to get onto someone’s construction schedule (after voter approval), we need to have the money in the bank. Over the next several weeks we will start receiving pledges for the Living as the Body of Christ Fund. It is our hope that we will get another $40,000 in donations by early summer. This will allow us to move forward with receiving the final bids, and getting on a roofer’s schedule before the raining season. Pray for success in our work here. We want this roof done before the rainy season next winter.
