Cement Floor   Leave a comment




That´s how much we spent this week on laying the cement floor. But it had to be done. You can see the hose used to water the cement in the mixer, 100 bags of cement, and truckloads of sand. Plus 15 men working 2 days straight. Now the first floor looks nicer, and the entrance ramp is less inclined and thus safer.

There is still a lot to do. The entrance patio will be finished next week. Daniel will clean the brick walls  in the sanctuary and out back (around the futbol field). We have 2 additional brick walls to put up and a metal double door in the sanctuary. Jonathan will put a coat of cement paste on all the cement walls on the first floor so that they can later be painted.  

 Next week we will continue to work on the kitchen. Luis (a church member) and his grandson finished the pantry shelves (see first photos) and will begin the counters (made just like shelves, with wooden frames, iron rods, and cement). Gilber will tile the floor. The donation from my aunt built the kitchen and we used the last $800 to buy the ceramic floor tiles. We still need $2500 for the kitchen to be operational. That will cover: tiles for the counters and walls, 2 fans, lighting, plumbing, 2 sinks, door, the serving window, and an industrial gas stove. It will also cover the first month of serving lunch to the kids and paying the cooks. oWe cannot go on without these funds.

Then to completely finish the kitchen, we will need a pantry door, industrial refrigerator, freezer, cooking, serving, and storage utensils, cleaning materials (we will be using what we own until funds come in), and paint. And we will need monthly donations to provide the ongoing service.

Please help us out with this project by sending a donation to Wordsower (see mailing address below). I can´t wait to show pictures to my grandma of the kitchen dedicated to her, where we are serving the children she prays for daily!
