PRAISE GOD-The Program Dorm is Open!
It has been a long and hard experience but the Program Dorm is open.
Everything is clean and painted, new carpet, and an air handler system
that was donated has been installed. This will provide both heat in the
winter and cool air in the summer. Thanks to the donor for his gracious
donation of this unit. We used the old furniture, beds and wardrobes
that were donated back in 1998 when the dorm was first opened. They
still have the Plaque's on them with the name of the donor on each set
of furniture. We did have to buy new mattresses for each bed. The Dorm
was opened on March 6th, 2014 and the men occupying it had nothing
but PRAISE GOD and THANKFULNESS TO THOSE OF YOU THAT DONATED to the
Mission to allow this to happen.
