New Building


The kids and I took a tour of the new facility that so many people have helped to build. With all of the Wycliffe Associates members that have come to help and the many hard-working men from local villages the new building is almost complete!

This is the view West toward the foundation of the next new building.



The guys had to dig through rock to make the hole for the septic tank, but I'm glad we've got it. This means indoor bathrooms!


My three muskateers thought that the space under one of the landings would make a great place to play.


Capacity for the new building is 16 people. There are 8 bedrooms total.

Three kitchens and 41/2 bathrooms. Two apartments upstairs to house future families coming to help with translation...


...and the space downstairs will be used to house the ladies who come to attend translation workshops or volunteers coming to help. There are 4000 square feet - 2000 downstairs and 2000 upstairs.





This is an absolutely beautiful building, and we are so excited to watch the part it plays in furthuring Bible translation! If you are interested in helping fund this new building or the next one, visit the Wycliffe Associates catalog and scroll down to "Give the Gift of Housing for Translators". The Solomon Islands project is #3374GH3. Thanks for your help!

Wow! It looks like it is going to be a very beautiful very functional place. Thank you for sharing your work with us! We have a family in our church who worked with Wycliff as Bible translators. I can't remember where anymore, but I will ask them on Sunday.

Blessings!
Deborah

I hope the water problem is solved soon!

Thankful! The building reminds me a little of the clinic in Mexico we were blessed to visit several years... Also thankful for your rain - pray that ours stops for a little while. God bless
