We are so excited to announce that we had our official groundbreaking on Wednesday October 9. Our Ayden Mayor, Steve Tripp , Commissioner Ivory Mewborn and so many of our friends and neighbors attended as well as Laura Todd, our director of the Ayden Chamber of Commerce. God certainly blessed us with Ernest Silver singing and dedicating this property to God.We will begin building Monday October 14 and are so blessed to have Bill Kidd Construction Company working with us on this ministry project.
We have almost completed the renovations on the homeplace on the property and our contractor for that should be finished by the end of the month.Yard landscaping is the next project.
