Dear Prayer Partners,
We left our home this morning with much anticipation (and some nervousness) to go to Timisoara for the signing of the contract for the purchase of our church property. Two years ago we met the owner for the first time and proposed a lease/purchase plan, but it has taken until now for the deed to be un-incumbered of other interested parties and for us to be fully prepared to face this financial challenge by faith and commitment.
I am happy to share that we returned home 12 hours later with a signed contract that gives our ministry ownership of the property with a payment plan over the next 4 years. The property is on a main thoroughfare in the city, so the price is significant. We have prayed earnestly and God provided the down payment and other clear signs of His direction; so now we trust Him by faith to provide the needed funds. Our first payment will be 55,000 euros in one year. Please pray with us as we chip away at this goal monthly.
I am literally exhausted after 2 intense weeks of running from one governmental agency to another in preparation for this contract. It is such a relief to be able to now go forward with everything in order legally. Over the next couple of months, we will be also working on the building with 2 different crews coming from Canada and the USA. Pray for materials and wisdom to complete this project, as well.
Thank-you for your prayers and faithful support. We could not be here without our regular supporters. We also realize many cannot do more than they already give, but if you wish to make a contribution toward the property payment or building project, please send it via Baptist International Missions, Inc., P.O. Box 9215, Chattanooga, TN 37412 for my missionary account #1258 with a specified designation.
Your servant in Christ,
