Cost Rica - March 2011

The project consisted of 53 people on the ground in Turrialba, C.R. They were broken into two teams. The construction part was to take off the existing roof of Messenger of Hope Church by removing all the zink roofing and cutting the existing metal frame and rolling it on its side on the existing church roof.
The team then added metal to the existing frame and for the floor joist to hold the materials for the floor. Metal studs were used instead of wood. Then they rolled & welded old metal room frame back into place, welded it together...walled it inside and out, and put new zink on the top. This was done in eight and half days at the same time others on the team did work at local schools, orphanages and day care center, two feeding programs a VBS and a youth retreat. A huge thank you to the construction teams, members of the David Melvin staff, youth who headed the other ministries, pastors Paul & Britt from RCC. God blessed and we had an awesome time eating grill cheese, fried chicken, and home made tamales. Thank You Lord for the salvations and lives touched.
