A special Thank You to all who helped with the roof repairs and extra energy costs over the last year. Because of your help in raising $60,000 we have been able to replace the roof on both the Main building and the Horne-Memorial Library. Above is the Library showing in progress pics. The first shows part of the old roof and the second shows the almost completed work. This is not about a building. This is about protecting resources and people who are instrumental in reaching the lost for Christ in Southern Africa.
