“Still Can’t find The boy (Joseph) in green shirt yet. He was an apprentice carrying blocks to floor number 12. Alongside him on that floor is Dandiga and Marcial.
I was standing at the point where the Green arrow is. I had just came down from the 3rd floor where I ate my lunch and kept the reserved food in my bag to be eaten in the evening. I used the stairs. The boys have exhausted the plaster sand so I ordered for more at around 2pm and I was waiting for the guy (tractor driver) to bring it with his tractor. Was standing there so I will him where exactly I want it offloaded and then I heard the crack sound. Saw the pillars giving way and God took it from there. How I ran fast in 3 seconds is absolutely God’s work like Elijah did ran before king Ahab. Thank you Jesus”
