Building Fund Update

We need to purchase the building adjacent to Blessing Home for much needed expansion for the ministry and  housing for our new missionaries.
We are now back in the States for a 10 weeks to raise funds for an urgent need at Blessing Home.  Blessing Home needs to buy the row-building adjacent to us that is up for sale.  It is urgent for two reasons.

1.  We need to buy quickly before it sells out from underneath us.  We need to expand the sanctuary on the first floor to accomodate overflowing groups in worship at Life Center UMC and to hold all of the guardians of the Blessing Home kids for trainings and special events.  If we miss out, we may never be able to expand.



2.  As an answer to our prayers, we now have new career missionaries coming to serve at Blessing Home Ground Zero.  Joshua and Jessica Johnston will be serving with us and are currently raising support so they can begin serving in the summer of 2015.

It is very difficult to find housing near Blessing Home that is safe for a family with three young daughters that is also affordable on a very modest missionary income.  So we need to have missionary housing at Blessing Home Ground Zero available for them.


We must raise $110,000 to purchase the property and make it usable (it is a bare concrete and brick shell at the moment).  As always, by Thai law, foundations cannot have mortgages or any financing, we must pay for all properties with cash.  So we are asking all of the churches and individual supporters to give generous special offerings to the Building Fund.  It is our goal to have all of the funds raised by the end of January 2015 so we can purchase the building.

We have been in the States for one week now, and so far, over $9,000 has been given to the Building Fund.  We will be excited to see this chart get colored up.
