Pray for "no" rain...

After a HUGE week of accomplishments with the new campus... the rain came!

Don't fear our new land is secure... the problem is our current building... the roof has started to collapse!

First concrete started falling from the eves...

 
Then the roof started to sag...
 
... next the eves started to bend...

After visits from two structural engineers we have started to evacuate the upstairs of our current building... both engineers agreed that the walls will stand but that the roof may fall... maybe in chunks or possibly all at once... especially if it continues to rain...

The students have a great attitude about the whole thing... the excitement of the new campus has a way of encouraging anyone... so currently staff and students are planning to work through the weekend to move everything downstairs before Monday morning...

Classes will be held under tents and in the lobby... offices will be squeezed... and tomorrow I am getting construction estimates for renovating the new campus... we may be there before January...

To be continued...

Please pray for "no" more rain...
