Thank you so much for your prayers, encouragement, support, and patience! As you are probably aware, we had a contained fire in the cafeteria due to the ongoing construction. At this time, we are doing a lot of remodeling work on top of the construction we were already doing. God is using this as an opportunity to provide much needed renovations for the school!

Construction Changes

  • Remodeling the cafeteria – new flooring, ceiling tiles, lights, a fresh coat of paint, and a wall partition 
  • Removing the stage and remodeling it into a classroom
  • Transforming the current teachers’ lounge into a classroom
  • Creating a new teachers’ lounge and a new piano lab
  • Removing the three wall partitions in the secondary classrooms and replacing them with soundproof walls
  • Remodeling the elementary and secondary hallways – new flooring, ceiling tiles, a fresh coat of paint, and painting the lockers
  • Renovating the kitchen with a new ceiling, flooring, and paint

God has gone before us in miraculous and amazing ways! One example is that a process which typically takes ten days to get approval was approved in one day and will be completed in less than one week. God provided flooring tile which usually takes three weeks to arrive, and they had the amount we needed in stock. Please pray for God’s continued wisdom and provision.
