Thai Christian volunteers are doing a great job of getting the new building ready to use

First, we want to let you know that next Sunday (April 15) will be the first worship service in the new building and the Monday after that will be the first day the children of Blessing Home will enjoy the new building.  Originally we thought the move in day would be the first Sunday of April, but there was just too much work to do.  The owner of our former building was very kind, and is allowing Blessing Home to use the old building for half a month in April at no charge.  We appreciate his kindness and mercy.

Second, we want to thank everyone for the donations to the building at Blessing Home.  The building is still being worked on.  The vast majority of the work is being done by members of Life Center UMC of Pattaya, Thailand and native mission teams from other churches in the region.  Pastor Banya has an amazing ability to make a dollar stretch and stretch, and the work is being done at a fraction of the cost that it would cost if we had to hire contractors to do it all.

The building is being made child-safe as well as security doors and bars on the windows.  The whole place is being beautifully decorated, and the front of the building has sharp looking glass doors and fa├žade.
As more funds come in, we will install air conditioners on the second and third floors.  Pastor Banya had to concentrate on safety issues first before comfort features, like air conditioners.

Your prayers and gifts make it possible to do the mission here in Thailand.

Security doors and bars on the windows were installed to protect the children and keep the balconies safe.

Volunteers are doing the majority of the work on the building.  We could not do the work without the help of the members of Life Center UMC and native mission teams from nearby Thai churches.

The stage area of the sanctuary on the first floor is beautifully designed.  The circle on the stage represents the empty tomb.  A cross will also be installed inside the circle.

The glass front doors and facade look amazing.  

The security bars are placed on the balconies.  This picture was taken before the glass doors were installed on the first floor.

Sorry that this picture is sideways, I can't seem to get it to show upright.  Anyhow, this is the rear of the building.  A roof with good ventilation is being installed to make this area usable as an outdoor kitchen.
