We started this vision after the 2007 major earthquake that devastated this area, and our own retirement in 2009. With multiple trips centered around what to do with a donated piece of property in the center of this village, we did many outreaches, met with lawyers and engineers and worked up a plan.
We demolished the severly earthquake damaged 100+ year old building that was on the property in early 2012 and ended up with dilemma of how to deal with a wall on the property line that was huge, heavy and severly earthquake damaged that no contractor wanted to dig a footer for our building. God intervened and brought us a 50% expansion of our prior narrow property and the wall was ours to take down!!
