BIO Office Building

December 8, 2008 10:50 am

Last week I got to take a working vacation of sorts. I went to Jefferson City, Tennessee where our mission board is building a new office. A church donated land to our board for the office and the building at the new site started a few months ago. They are trying to use as much volunteer labor as possible.

I volunteered to help out. Terry Childers, one of our missionaries to Kenya, is home during this time. Initially he came home because of the political unrest in the country. The Lord has used him to supervise the construction of the building since this was the type of work he did before going to the field. He is doing a marvelous job overseeing the construction. He will be headed back to Kenya sometime in January and will hand over the next phase of construction to someone else.

I worked at the site from Monday to Friday of last week. Mostly I was doing work on the rafters and laying roof sheathing. The goal is to have the roof ready for shingles in a few more days. Getting the building dried in is the ultimate goal before Bro. Childers leaves in January.

If you are interested in providing labor or money towards the project, you can contact BIO directly. Even if you can only spend a day or two, that would be a tremendous blessing. You can contact the office for more information at 865-992-0999.
