Growing Community

They have so much work they are sub-contracting another carpenter, Gerver, to come in and help them with local orders. Gerver is also a member of the local church-plant, Cristo Rey. There is also another carpenter, Kelvin, who is a member at a sister church in Arevalo and hasbeen renting shop space to work on one of his jobs.  Our tools and Javier and Norvil's shop are turning out to be a blessing to others.  It is feeling like a busy shop with so many people around. We actually took Saturday off to go to the beach and relax a little before the summer ends.  They have been working so hard they have not taken any time off the whole summer.  
They have recently finished a trundle bed for a local customer, received an order for several cedar lounge chairs , a table top, and are working on a bunk bed, dresser and coffee table.
We are also in the process of looking into a kiln to be able to properly dry wood for exporting indoor furniture.  This is a big step of growth for our shop. We are very excited for this opportunity and thankful for the investor who is interested in helping this project grow.
