April 8, 2017 Update:

Just to get you up to speed.  We have pulled our building permit with the City of Live Oak.  Bethel Baptist Builders, a Christian group from Alabama will be coming here June 10-16, 2017.  They will bring app 100-125 people to our church to do framing and ruff-in electrical.  They take one project per year during their vacation time and they choose our church for their mission this year.  A lot of the members of Bethel Baptist are members of COM also.
Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know we have been in contact with Mr. Dresser and if there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to let me know.
