Waterproofing the basment is finished!

B-dry finished waterproofing yesterday. We are so grateful that work is done. They had to cut the drywall on the bottom of the walls a few feet as part of their waterproofing so we have work on the walls that needs to be done to make the place habitable. The flooring cannot be installed until August as the cement has to have sufficient time to cure first but the walls can be worked on in the meantime. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to fix the walls and we are not drywall experts so we will need help with this big project. There are two groups of wonderful christian men we know with experience that we will call. Our prayer is the basement is finished by August so God can guide us how to best use the space. There are two ideas at present; teenager with a baby needing mentoring and help, and women with one or two children needing mentoring and help. We will keep praying about God's desire for that space and I will do some research in the meantime. I do not finish graduate school until September so I will be busy until then, and keep working on research regarding need in the meantime, and be in prayer for God's provision to finish the basement to make it habitable. Please join me in prayer!
His will, His timing, His way,

Thank You Barnesville Baptist Church!

May 2, 2012

We are so very grateful for a substantial contribution from Barnesville Baptist Church to enable us to proceed with the waterproofing of the basement.  B-Dry is coming on May 14 to dig the trenches and install the drain to keep the water from the water table from ever flooding the basement again!  This means construction to finish the basement for the women's ministry can occur as early as June 2nd.  After the waterproofing is done we will need to fix drywall on the walls and some places in the ceiling and install new flooring and the basement will be habitable again.  We are very excited for God's plan for that space once it is ready for habitation.

Philippians 4:19--And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
