Help us fill the gap and raise up The Lodge!
We are SO CLOSE to being able to start on Phase 2 of The Lodge! This is the most expensive, time-consuming and labor-intensive phase of construction: building the walls and roof. We have a team arriving in Malawi September 12, ready to jumpstart the construction of this phase-- if we can buy all the supplies they need. We are currently just $5,000 short of what we need to purchase the last of our bricks, cement, sand and rebar. $5,000 is all we need to start putting up walls. Will you help us fill this gap?
Nothing we do at Esther's House would be possible without our dedicated missionaries. They have been waiting for and praying for a place that they can call home-- not just a house where they can live for a year, but a home where they can raise their families and forge deep friendships with the Malawians they came to serve. The Lodge will provide safe, comfortable housing right in the heart of the Esther's House compound.
Construction for The Lodge will take place over four phases-- one of which is already complete!
-Phase 1: Perimeter wall around the property and foundation. COMPLETED.
-Phase 2: Framing, exterior walls, interior walls and roof. Fundraising target: $80,000 by June 15, 2016. Construction to begin Summer 2016.
-Phase 3: Electrical wiring, plumbing, lighting, painting. Fundraising target: $50,000 by December 31, 2016. Construction to begin Spring/Summer 2017.
-Phase 4: Appliances, furnishings and landscaping. Fundraising target: $30,000 by April 15, 2017. Construction to begin Summer 2017.Our goal is for our missionaries to be able to move into their new homes in the fall of 2017.
Help us take a big step forward and raise the walls of Esther's House!
