Hi BVC’ers!

I have some good HOUSE RENOVATION news for all of you. This past Tuesday, Dennis Wilkison and I met with 4 engineers who came to look at our situation. I listened carefully as they spoke about the building and its needs. Some were interested in electrical. Some were interested in plumbing. Some were interested in HVAC. Some were interested in structure. They asked pertinent questions and we arrived at some much-needed clarification. They took a lot of pictures — of EVERYTHING. They inspected EVERYTHING.

Then I heard some really good words: they believe they’ll have everything ready to be presented to the Building Commission in November!! This is what we’ve been praying about as presenting in November/December is vital. If we couldn’t present in 2019, then we’d be exposed to many new rules and regulations in 2020 which would set us back a lot.

Please pray for these engineers to deliver on their word. Pray for them to communicate clearly with our architect as well as with us in a timely manner so that proceeding with presenting to the Building Commission goes as planned. Thanks so much!

The COMMUNITY FAMILY FESTIVAL was a huge success. Many from our neighborhood visited us and many good conversations were held. Pray that those conversations turn into future visits!
