Raising the Roof

Happy Easter Monday!


A reason to celebrate!


Yesterday we celebrated Resurrection Day with members of the missionary community and with our Cameroonian church friends.  It was a beautiful day to celebrate our risen Saviour.


Beautiful music from the instrumentalists









and also the Easter choir!

As you may realize from the blog title – not only has Christ risen, but the roof on our hostel building is also rising – even if less miraculously.

It has been awhile since I have posted new pictures here of the building and not only are all the exterior walls now completed, but the framework for the roof has gone up. 


It won't be long until the sky will not be visible as you look up on the top floor.

 The roofing material has arrived and so very soon we should see a completed roof.


Long length of roofing material which will soon go from the ground to the heights.


In the meantime, work on plastering the walls and ceiling of our apartment with cement is progressing. 


Walls and ceilings are being plastered.


During the past week the window and door frames have been installed too.  Soon it will be ready for the doors and windows themselves. 



Door frames and plaster - major progress!



Soon we will be able to say “Come on in”


Welcome to our home - we have window frames.
