New Roof 2012
Our church in Portugal, Igreja Evangélica Baptista, in Arruda dos Vinhos, will be getting a much-needed new roof. The church has been praying for a new roof for well over 5 years. Rod wrote this about the condition of the building:
As a visitor, I would see:
People mopping up the 9’ puddle of rainwater in the middle of the sanctuary right before service
Mold growing on the walls and ceiling tiles in multiple locations
Water stains on many of the walls and ceiling tiles
A speaker from the sound system missing (it was moved because rainwater kept dripping on it)
Multiple ceiling tile missing (rain-soaked tile fell on the floor during the sermon)
A wet carpet in the nursery (continually soaked by the rain)
A musty smell from continual moisture
God has provided a miracle!!! Thanks to God and the generous people of Northeastern Baptist Church in Kalamazoo, MI, the work on our church's new roof will begin on July 17, 2012.
Check back every few days for updates on the progress of the project.
