Roofers Needed

God has provided an awesome opportunity to help roof a church for a partner ministry called ‘Christianville’ in Gressier, Haiti. The roof was structurally damaged during the earthquake and it needs the tiles removed and a new, lighter weight roof put onto it.

The roofing stage will begin the last week in April and six-eight man teams are needed with at least two-three skilled roofers and framers. Structural repairs will also be needed. The new roof will be metal over plywood decking so plan to bring specialty tools for metal roofing with you. The process will take about three weeks.

The church is about a mile walk from the housing compound which is another example of being in the right place to serve those in need!

Please continue to pray for God to raise up His harvesters for this mission field and that many Haitians would come to know the unfailing love of our Father in heaven! Contact if you are interested in serving the Lord in this way.
