Recently, CH Construction had the opportunity to fill a need with a congregation in Eldon, Missouri. The small congregation Children of Yahweh in Yahshua our Messiah purchased a small home next to their assembly hall to use for visiting guest, a food pantry and meeting area. The home needs to be completely remodeled. With limited building funds the congregation reached out to their members and friends to help with the labor. Brandt, CH Construction owner, was able to volunteer and will be returning to work on the remodeling of the guest house.
