Two senior engineering majors and Dr. Stephen Parke traveled to Peru this month to test a new construction method with Extreme Nazarene (EN) and to deliver their senior project that could save EN time and money.

The group has worked for over a year to design a new, more cost-effective way of building churches in Peru. This month’s trip tests the block-molding plant that makes blocks on site using polyurethane. Blocks are then stacked and filled with rebar and concrete for strength. This system has the potential to cut costs by 25 percent of each church plant’s cost.

We invite you to pray for Dr. Parke, David Vincent (Wash.) and Jesse Baggenstos (Wash.) as they travel (May 18-31) and work alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ to come up with innovative solutions in Kingdom building.

2012 graduating seniors Luke Hetrick (Idaho), Bryan Hunt (Alaska), Andrew Peterson (Wash.) and Michael Whiting (Nampa) worked through the school year to engineer and design the system after traveling to Peru last summer.
