Campus ministry building nears completion

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A new building on the Arkansas StateUniversity campus is nearing completion thanks to some helpful volunteers.

About 100 people woke up early Saturday morning to lay sodat the new Wolf Life Campus Ministry building.

The volunteers donated a few hours to make the lawn looknice and green, but the facility is still weeks away from opening.

Once the building is complete, ministry director ChrisBuxton says this will be a place for students to enjoy for years to come.

"I just want to say thanks to all the folks who came out anddonated their time, volunteered," Buxton said. "All the sod went down in aboutan hour and a half if you can believe that, so it was really exciting to seeall the people out here working hard, getting sweaty, getting dirty like I amright now.

"So, I just thank all of them."

The on-campus ministry is sponsored by the area Churches ofChrist, though its main backer is Southwest Church of Christ on James Street.
