The original church building was used as a school through the week.  The building was made of local hand-cut lumber and repurposed tin that was retrieved from a refuse pile.  The member of the church carried rocks from the local riverbed to create the beginnings of a foundation.

Construction began by building a foundation around the existing structure with local masons. There was considerable challenge transporting building materials through the mountain passes.
