This is a report to all that have an intrest in what we
are doing at the Mission since we have received the re-plat, re-zoning
and final permit for Change of Use, to proceed with the renovations
necessary to bring everything up to code with our building.
First we have to remodel the women's restroom to bring it up to ADA
(handicap) specifications. We are working on that now and it should be
completed in a couple weeks. Then we have to complete the program dorm
to bring it up to the requirement of the Change of use permit
requirements, and then we can obtain the final inspection.
This is just a few of the things we are working on to hopefully and soon
to be able to occupy this dorm that has been a long time in coming. I
will keep you informed with an updated progress report.
Then we have other problems that have to be addressed while this work is
goin on. An example is pin-hole leaks in the copper plumbing pipes that
have to be fixed immediately and the tile floor in the bathroom of the
women's dorm has to be completey removed and replaced. Please pray for
us in our attempts to hold things together, with God's help.
