From the onset of the Jeffrey Campbell Evans Foundation, we have had a dream to build a stand-alone transplant house that will have at least 20 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, fully furnished apartments, plus beautiful and useful communal areas. The reality of that dream coming true has begun.
Kevin Glade, an architect with Richmond Honan LLC, has designed the house for us on a pro bono basis. We do not know how to thank him! If you click on the link, above, you will see the beginning stages of our dream.
Then Jared Penny of Pencor Construction, a division of Richmond Honan LLC, has agreed to be our General Contractor for the build.
The estimated total amount to complete this project is $15M! Sounds impossible, we know. But we also know that NOTHING is impossible with our God. In the near future, a capital fund raising campaign will be initiated. And then the project will begin.
I have a “saying” hanging in front of my eyes at my desk. It says, “Someone, somewhere is depending on you to do what God has called you to do.” I live by that statement. God has placed a lot of “someone’s” in my life and the joy of my life is to do what HE has called me to do. This transplant house will surely enlarge our ability to carry out His plans.
Stay tuned. I will be publishing updates on this project as they happen.
