God always amazes

It shouldn’t, but time and again, God simply amazes us.

A couple of years ago, the dream of EPBT started, you can see the video here.  Shortly after that, we started to make a plan. Then we launched the program.  As with every new venture, there are ups and downs and a learning curve.  To be honest, we are now a couple of years in and we are still learning, and probably will be for quite some time.

The need to expand

After our 1st semester we saw the need to expand part of the facilities to be able to accommodate and enable more opportunity to small business growth. As part of the EPBT program, we built a fantastic 40’x50′ carpentry shop. When I was living in Canada I dreamed of having such a shop.  The shop is great and does so much.

Since we are always looking for ways to improve, we remembered the ministry here, has a fantastic portable outdoor saw mill. However, unfortunately it’s in storage and not being used. That is when the light went on.  Why don’t we add it onto our carpentry shop?

The next phase

This is when we put the next phase into motion.  Here in El Salvador, life isn’t as simple as taking the sawmill out of storage and starting it up.  Certain precautions and preventative measures have to be in place.  This is when we started to look for people to invest in the investment of others, through EPBT. Thanks to Evangel Pentecostal Church in Powell River, BC we are able to show you some photos, with still more to come.

Today I wanted to give you an update and let you see for yourselves where we are in the project.  We estimate we should be complete by the mid September.
