Update Renovation April 2009

Thanks to a generous donation we were able to continue the renovations on our E.S.R.A. Training Center. Many volunteers, some of them families with children, who even camped overnight in our partially finished building, worked hard and what got done is phenomenal.

  • A brick building was torn down to create the required five parking spaces.
  • The parking lot was finished with gravel.
  • A shed was cleaned out.
  • A window was installed in the shed where there was only a large hole before.
  • A small retaining wall was built for the parking lot.
  • An underground 7,000 liter oil tank was filled with sand, as required by law.
  • A lot of cleanup was done.
  • Heating system on first 2 levels is complete.
  • Ground floor is complete except for the Kitchen, Restrooms and Hallway.

Our goal is to get the ground floor finished and ready to use for the 9th year of our E.S.R.A. Bible College. We need to install plumbing in two bathrooms, install fixtures and tile bathrooms, renovate hallways, put up drop ceiling in hallways, some electrical work, miscellaneous. Second floor has heat but needs plumbing, electrical, paint, dry wall and doors. Both floors need general cleaning.

  • We are open to anyone who would like to partner with us and practically help us with these renovations.
  • We are also grateful for donations to complete renovating a building in which we can eventually house 12 people.
