The “Six Days Church” Miracle

The entire community of Empalme de Boaco watched in amazement as the “miracle men” finished building the church for the local congregation “Restauracion en Jesucristo.” A team of twenty five men from Manteo, North Carolina, made the journey to Empalme to complete this building project in only 6 days. The team was lead by Dr. JL Williams, founder of New Directions International and Mr. Coy Tillet, owner of Coastal Ready Mix Concrete in Nagshead, NC.  The trip was the result of months of planning to make sure all the supplies would be available for the team to complete the project.  A container carrying all the building materials was shipped from the US to Nicaragua prior to the team’s arrival.  Members of the local church worked to get the site prepared for the building crew.
