For many people they are already thankful that this months report is not as long at last months report. There is not a lot to update you on. Never the less what has happen you need to know. Cosco (contractor) and ICAT (insurance) meet at the church on May 24th. They spent about three hours walking our building discussing differences in their estimates. I would say at first ICAT seemed hesitant on the differences but by the end of the meeting Cosco believes ICAT to be more accepting of their estimate. At the request of ICAT, Cosco has been working very hard on creating a not to exceed final number. It appears ICAT would like to resolve our claim promptly.

In regards to the not to exceed number, Cosco has finalized the number. In order to repair our building the total cost would be around $2,000,000. So far we have received about $650,000 from the insurance company to repair our main building. That is a difference of $1,350,000. I know that last month I wrote the difference was around $600,000 but at that time Cosco had not gotten all the estimates from the subcontractors. That was the known total as of then. Now they have all estimates and the two biggest additions are $234,330 for the roof and $405,519 for Masonry.

You need to continue to pray for Cosco and ICAT to be at peace with one another and God steer their hearts to resolving our claims so we can begin the remodel process.

Also lift up Cosco as they struggle to find reliable subcontractors.

Even though at the moment there is not much for the building committee to do, pray for us that God will fill us with the spirit of unison in the same vision so that when it is time to start on the plans we are one in the process.

As for when will we get to start, I make no promises. God has already reprimanded me saying to me that this is His building and when He is ready then He will let us start. He didn’t tell me to stop thinking and praying about it nor to stop listening to the church body’s concerns and hopes. Just trust Him to work out His plans. So if you have any concerns or hopes about the remodel please see me or one of the others on the building committee.
