Demo has started on our new chapel building! I mentioned in our earlier email that the church has rented a 3 story building. The top 2 floors are great the way that they are for a Relief Society Room, a priesthood room, 4 young men and young women's rooms, 3 bishop's & 3 clerk's offices, a library, and 2 kitchens. The first floor has 3 big primary rooms... and.... our new chapel. The chapel area used to be 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, & 4 bedrooms. This is what it looks like as of last Friday...Aug. 19th.
The road to the new building is dirt. We were mortified to arrive at the job in the middle of the week and see that all of our demo'd plaster, block, etc was spread all over the road in the front of the building. When we told the contractor that they would have to clean it all up, the neighbors insisted that this is what they do with "fill" here. They said they like it to keep the dirt down and keep it from being muddy in the rainy season. SOoooo, at least for now we are leaving it like this. WEIRD!
Elder Gates visits the site everyday to make sure "All is Well". He is to notify the church temporal affairs office immediately if there are problems. We are thrilled to announce that we will be dividing our 2 branches into 3 branches in 2 weeks, in preparation for using our new building. We will keep you posted!
