A classroom space for our teens so that they weren’t out in the canvassed in “stoep” in the winter months. We were going to replace the canvas with bricks and we raised the funds and wanted to get it going!
Then the council said “No.”
Things kind of slowed down and we talked a bit about a mezzanine floor in the foyer, but nothing happened. Enter Gavin Tucker with skill, persuasive powers and passion. Gavin got the Building Committee together, chased down contractors and then the crashing and bashing started! (Much to the office staff’s heart-attacks!)
Hilario Ribeiro was our diligent contractor and the end product was reached quickly and we have a stunning space that will double as meeting space, office space, teaching space and, as an unexpected bonus our foyer was facelifted and looks really stunning.
Glory to God and big thanks to Gavin, Hilario, Craig, Ken and many other unsung heroes who helped make this happen!
|We sang “To God be the Glory – Great things He has done”
And dedicated the space to God in prayer!
