Have you seen the new roofs on the three main buildings and the bell house?

This is the 25th year of the rebuilt Rinzai Zen Mission and it started to leak in the main temple building. It is so fortunate that we have very dry winters here in Paia and we could finish all three buildings at the same time. The bell house was way overdue, but nobody lived under it and nobody complained. The bell house now has 50-year presidential shingles. All other buildings have 30 year shingles. We hope our buildings stay in good shape in the years to come.

Thank you very much for your support for this very important project. Because of your generous DANA(donation) we are still able to keep going as the only Rinzai Zen temple on Maui. Our Vice President Mr. Valentino Dieguez has been in charge of this project and worked hard to oversee this work, from choosing a contractor to checking the workmanship. Thank you Val, job well done!
