Gospel Mission Church in Carrot River started construction on April 18th as planned, despite not quite meeting their fundraising goal. They are now touching up some drywall and painting and then will be looking at the flooring. The building is well lit, the cement work is done, and the air conditioning unit is in place. They are starting to get just a little excited!!
Fundraising is still in process as there's more to go and their goal is to not have any debt.
