The second week of November 2013 was the moment when our building crew completed the final slab on all the upstairs bedrooms, leaving only the bathrooms ready to be finished. We are thankful for all the efforts that have been put into getting everything ready for the pouring of the slab.
As you can see in the photos below, the internet wires, heating pipes, thermostat wires were placed in the slab. We also hired a company do all the wiring for the fire and security alarm, a state requirement.
Therefore we are now ready for the next important step, which is to finish the plumbing on the first and second floor. Today (Tuesday the 19th of November) the plumber we contracted continued his work and hopefully will finish all the upstairs and move to the downstairs connections. Once we have all the plumbing done on the second floor we will be ready to install the ceilings on the first floor.
We are still praying for volunteers to sign up to come and help us finish the ceilings on the first floor.

I believe it is time for an update from the HOH center. For the past few months there was much progress done. God has been good to us and we managed to finish the partition walls for all the bathrooms and closets on every bedroom upstairs. That was the work of a very determined team from Urban Harvest Fellowship from Little Rock, Arkansas. After they left we continued the work on some plastering, plumbing and other minor things. We had to get the upstairs ready for the final coats of plastering and also for the slab.
We were glad to receive the help of one of our friends and supporters, David Dobrin from California, who came and helped Petry to install all the internet and thermostat wiring that will be covered by the slab. They also finished preparing all the piping for the heating system.
Therefore we are now ready to pour the final slab and finish the final two coats of plaster on the walls. Please continue to pray for us and our needs as we are trying to complete the upstairs. We need all the help we can get, but we believe God will continue to provide at the right moment.
