Leveling the Land at The Sanctuary

Andrew descibing the process of leveling the land at the Sanctuary building site. (Click to enlarge)As we mentioned in an earlier post, heavy construction equipment began sculpting the landscape at Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park, Colorado. Excavation at the Sanctuary property began on September 7, and two weeks later, on the third anniversary of the purchase of the property, Andrew recorded a new update, live on the jobsite.

In the video Andrew shares the progress that has been made in just two weeks of actual site work. Watch Andrew as he reports from the exact spot from which he revealed the plans for construction on the hood of his Jeep in 2010. Andrew gives viewers a picture of where the buildings will be located, and he discusses the on-campus student housing projects slated to begin at the end of the year.

Scrapers crawl through the landscape, working together to shape the land. (Click to enlarge) Andrew points to stakes marking where the second building will be errected. (Click to enlarge)

Andrew also shares a special thank you with those who have helped support the first phase of the project, making mention that because of the generosity of the ministry's partners, AWM has been moving forward debt free.

Be sure to watch the video through to the end to see Andrew "move some dirt."
