Greetings To Declare Christ Blog Reader in the Name of our Precious Savior Jesus Christ, After much consideration we have decided to go ahead with a contractor for the re-roofing project (We will still be doing the tear-off of the roofing material. see below). He is a wonderful believer in Jesus Christ with a team of fellow believers from Grand Junction, Colorado. He has given us the bid of $17,145 (not including equipment, see below) for the two sections that need done. The re-roofing, reinforcing, etc. of the main sanctuary will be $12,310 and the second section will be $4,835. These two sections were discussed in greater detail in previous emails. Please let us know if you would like more details. We give praise to God for the continued volunteer labor that has been promised towards removing the roofing and for a couple of promised pieces of equipment to help with the re-roofing. However these offers are probably not forever so we do want to get on this project. Therefore Lord willing the project is set to begin around the end of November and the first part of December which is the earliest available time for the contractor and his men. We, "Casa de La Biblia" (House of the Bible), give praise to God for the $10,090 that we already have for the re-roofing project. We need $2,220 for the main sanctuary section or $7,055 would finish the complete project Lord willing. We would like to do both sections as the funds become available. We would appreciate your prayers in regards to this project's funding, weather, contractor, and volunteer labor.
