A few weeks ago Bro. Scott Morris sent out another letter about the house we are building for Odie.
If you have been following the house progress here, then you probably know most of the news in the letter, but it might be informative to some.
We are very grateful for your ongoing interest and may God bless each of you that have prayed and each individual and church that has helped us make it this far in the building process.
I may write about the house tomorrow too, but I neglected to post this letter when it was mailed and I want to share it with you.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Thanks for reading today.
When I last updated you on the house being built for Odie to live in, the footer had just been poured and about 1/3 of the money estimated for the house had been given. We were glorifying God for His help and we are giving Him praise and glory today. We have received nearly 2/3 of the money needed for completion and we are much farther along in the building process.
The block foundation was finished May 9th. The slab was poured May 17th. The walls were framed May 23rd. The trusses were completely set by May 29th. The sheeting was put on the roof and the windows were installed at that time as well. Most everything has went extremely smooth since then and as I write this, the interior walls are being painted, the cabinets are being installed and the exterior siding has been ordered.
You, God’s people, have provided one miracle after another all summer long. There has never been an abundance of money in the house account since the first of June but most everything has been provided when needed through donation of finance, donation of materials and donation of hard labor. It has been amazing to watch the miracles happen. Sis. Odie and Bro. Davy will have more details for you when the house is finished but they have also been posting news and pictures on their website (www.boggsblogs.com)
As with any construction undertaking there have been some aspects that have been shockingly expensive but we are thankful to report that we are at this advanced stage in the project and we have only spent a few thousand more than what has been given. Thank you for that and praise the LORD!
There is a lot of work left and a few costly hurdles to cross before this vision of mine is realized. We must pay for exterior siding that has been ordered, purchase the HVAC units plus the plumbing and electrical items for finishing, buy the counter tops and flooring, pour the concrete porches, sidewalks and driveway and the septic system must be installed. We are believing God for the provision of all of this and more in His time and in His will.
Thank you for all prayers and encouragement. Thank you to those churches and individuals that have been able to contribute time, labor and money. May God bless you for your kindness and generosity. From myself, the preachers that have joined with me and the Boggs family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
