Look what you're helping us do in Guatemala!
It's time to update you on the work being done on the Building of Promise.
The original space on the first floor has been remodeled. Huge columns were installed in each classroom in an effort to support the third floor soccer/ sport court. All of the classrooms were enlarged and received new flooring. The hallway going out the back of the first floor will look very different to those of you who have visited. It no longer is open, because the second floor meeting room was expanded to accommodate the soccer court.

The large meeting room on the second floor was expanded, new windows are being installed on the right side of the room, and this area will receive new flooring. This created a larger meeting room and of course huge columns have been installed to support the soccer court. Part of the roof had to be removed during construction making this area "open" and vulnerable to rain that will come in April. We need to pour concrete for this ceiling (also the floor of the soccer court) ASAP.
Two levels of steps have been installed - from the second to the third floor. No more climbing that sketchy ladder :)
Classrooms are under way on the third floor.
As money comes in, two bathrooms as well as an area for gardening projects will also be built. The atrium style dome in this photo will be raised and this look will mirror the open area on the second floor.
Thank you so much for helping us! Our most pressing need is $20,000 to pour the concrete that will be ceiling of the second floor and base of the soccer/sport court. We need to do this ASAP before April rains come.
The soccer/sport court will be here. We can't wait to see kids and families from the community enjoying this space and finding Jesus! Do you see those trees that God planted years ago? We think it was His dream to have this rooftop play space in area where kids can't safely play outside. So he went ahead and planted those trees in advance.
