“In your patience possess ye your souls.”

“By standing firm you will gain life.”

Some of you are aware that, since early this year, we have been trying to obtain a permit for proceeding with renovations of the C-View Street ministry center. What you probably don’t know is that this process has been filled with one hurdle after another. It seemed that each time we thought we had complied with the City of Durham’s request for one thing or another, and that we’d get the permit, there was something else that was required! Well, it is with a joy-filled heart and a very grateful spirit that I am happy to tell you that WE HAVE THE PERMIT and the work is moving forward! Praises be to God!
If you go by the C-View Street property, you’ll see that construction materials are on the ground and work has indeed begun, again. In fact, today we’ll have the “footing inspection,” the first of several inspections the building will go through until completion of the work.
As usual, we ask that you keep this “labor of love” in your prayers, as well as those who will be laboring on our behalf, the construction workers.
If we’ve learned anything during the past eight months (and we have learned much) it’s how to be just a bit more patience and trusting. Once again, thank you God.
