Making Progress!

Thanks to a GENEROUS donation by beautify CNMI we have been making Great progress on the renovations and restoration of the former Pacific Castle Building in Koblerville.
The members of NCLC and in particular, the youth, have been working so hard the last couple months to get the grounds cleaned up, trees planted, and now the building painted...here are some pictures


after we had started water blasting and scrapping away the old paint..what a monumental task in itself!!!
Doesn't look like much now...but we have big plans!
Hard at work!
Painting has started (Thanks again Angelo and Beautify CNMI)
Team effort!

It's amazing what some elbow grease, paint and prayers can do!

Stay tuned for more to come...

Thanks! and thanks again Angelo! I really can't put into words how something that seems so insignificant such as "paint" has made such a huge impact...not only on our building (which is obvious) but over the past couple months that we have been working it's been just absolutely amazing watching the kids come out and work together to get the job done. Most of the kids in our church come from broken homes, some don't even have homes and go from place to place, a lot of dropped out of highschool or were not able to graduate before they reached 19 and were kicked out...just a lot of hard times and sad stories! Watching them all come together and work so hard and take pride in what they are doing..like I said words can't explain it....and although they were able to clean the yard up and plant trees, the new paint on the building has made such a diffrence! And you can see the Pride in their faces whenever anyone talks about how amazing the place is looking...so again Thank you! Your generosity has done so much more than just beautifying a building!!!!!
