check out Tammy's blog at www.chrysalishousetexas.blogspot.com/
which has a more current update.
If you don't want to look again, here's part of her latest entry:
Little City Baptist Church from Little City, Oklahoma will be arriving on Sunday May 30th and will be staying at the Cross Country Cowboy Church in Sulphur Springs, TX. The group from Little City made 2 trips down to Chrysalis House for a site visit, and I (Tammy) made a trip to their church to give the whole body a presentation of our ministry. After my visit to their church in Little City, they gave us a nice brisket dinner with all the fixings. They are a precious group of people who will bless our community while they are here.
The group will start the installation of the roof for Chrysalis House the following Monday on May 31st. We have purchased all of the roofing materials needed in the amount of $21,029.36 from Lowe's of Sulphur Springs, and we would love for anyone who knows how to use a hammer to come on out and help. We are going to try and strip the old shingles off which is only one layer of shingles the weekend before the group from OK arrives, so that when they start on Monday, they can just start with the roofing. Trey Norris is letting us use his dump truck to hall all of the old shingles to Sells Recycling in Yantis. Don Sapaugh and Jimmy Bailey is allowing us the use of their front end loaders to carry shingles from rooftop to dump truck. There are many others who will be participating in helping us out, and we are so excited about this next step.
We are really praying that we have enough help to complete the entire roof installation instead only a portion of the roof. If you or someone you know would like to help, please contact us. We will have all of the materials already purchased for the entire roof.
She has also posted that she's attending a non-profit management class in Austin. I don't know Tammy personally, but I have no doubt as to her integrity and passion for this project. What's been the hold-up?? I don't know everything. I think there were problems with the city inspectors, a lot of copper got stolen at one point, and then the whole roof needed replacing. Maybe that's not everything, either.
Anyone want to add to or correct my info, feel free!!!
