We are growing!

In the past year we have seen the need to add to our property up in the mountains. As we run more events and trainings, we have more opportunities to host groups overnight. This has meant housing them in a combination of tents, our one existing cabin, inside the main building, and outside underneath the main roof. Using tents can be difficult as it rains frequently up in the mountains and tropical rains are too strong for the tents to handle. Sleeping under the roof is fine some days, but when it is rainy and foggy it's often also quite windy and you can still get soaked! It works, but is not ideal and is usually our biggest hurdle with hosting teams (especially if they aren't all very adventurous!) It is also much harder with groups of kids. As we look ahead into the future we want to continue using the property for training, retreats, and camps. Having permanent housing will make that much easier! So we are planning to build two small cabins that will each sleep nine people. There will be three triple bunks in each as well as a small area to put bags. We don't want/need luxury cabins, just a dry place for people to sleep!

We are also going to build a small shower house. Currently with groups we will put up a tarp "shower stall" behind the building with a hose running to it. We are planning on building a 2 stall shower with a small area to put clothes and keep them dry. The water will still be cold, but it will be much more private and easier to change/keep clothes dry!

Both the cabins and the shower house will be built on the hill next to our main building. Because of the steep grade, we don't use that portion of the property. So it will be perfect for our building projects!

How can you get involved!?

Help Financially

To make this possible we need to raise $10,000 usd.

This will cover the materials to build both cabins, the shower house, and building the 18 beds.

We currently do not have the resources for this, so we need people like you to join and partner with us to see this happen!

Would you prayerfully consider giving toward this project?

You can give online or by check! Go to our donate page for more details. Simply attach a memo/note stating that it is for the building fund, or send us an e-mail!

Every gift helps, no matter the size!

Help Physically

We also need builders! We are a small team (3 staff) and none of us are professional builders! We are hoping to put together a group of people to come down and help us to build the cabins and the bathhouse.

We also need people who would help design and plan. We have a rough idea, but would love a professional to help talk through the options and plan with what is available here.

Do you have experience in construction? Are you interested in using those skills in missions!? If you are interested, shoot us an e-mail! We are hoping to build somewhere between Sept-Dec 2021. Why not escape winter for a week or two and volunteer!
