We have worked hard in recent weeks and construction has continued despite the heavy storms and rain showers. We are gaining more and more respect for all those construction workers who work every day in all weather conditions.
The ground has been nicely leveled between the concrete foundation and all pipes, sewers and empty pipes for extra cables have been installed. Suddenly you can see where the toilets, kitchen and technical rooms are located. You see the construction drawings come to life.
And then suddenly things happen very quickly. The concrete beams are laid, the insulating Styrofoam parts are applied and everything is prepared to close the crawl space with an enormous layer of concrete.
But first we walk outside as a team to sing God’s blessing over the foundation. The construction workers love it. At the start of ‘Fill this house with Your glory’ it is still raining, but towards the end the sun breaks through. Afterwards one of the men asked if we would like to come and sing at every construction site. Yes!
The reinforcement is further prepared, the formwork is finished and then the enormous concrete trucks enter the site and everything is poured beautifully. The foundation is ready!
Everything will continue again on Monday. The steel beams are already on their way, now we’re going into the air. To be continued.
