Big News… Project M:25
Throughout the history of our ministry, sometimes God’s plan has happened so fast it felt like a whirlwind just took over our lives. The end result has always been a beautiful advancement of His plan. Even though the whirlwind might feel wild for a bit, every moment is worth it.
Welcome to “Whirlwind M25!” We just got word this morning, that our offer to purchase property was accepted. Our ministry will soon include a 2 ½ acre campground. This campground will serve as an outreach center to its surrounding impoverished community. This community has NO Christian church – this will be its FIRST one to bring the light of Jesus Christ. We will offer meals to the children, tutoring and enrichment classes as well as children’s church services. We will also offer help for the elderly of the community and other outreach opportunities. The campground will also serve as a retreat center for the kids of our partner feeding ministries in the city. From time to time, we will invite these children to a special retreat to escape the harshness of city life while learning more and growing closer to God.
Here is a video that shows the property and talks more about our plans:
This is truly one of those God opportunities! We are able to purchase the property at HALF of its appraised value. We have a couple of key donors who are working to help us raise the money for the purchase (PRAY for this effort). Truly EVERY door is swinging open as God shows His might to make this happen. It is ALL God (and it’s happening FAST)!
We feel it proper to call this expansion of our ministry, Project M25 (based on chapter 25 in Matthew), which will encompass all of our current and new benevolent ministry activities. From now on, as you hear us talk about Project M25, that will include the outreach activities at the new campground and it will include our work at other feeding centers. God has a grand vision for helping “the least of these” here in Ecuador.
We will have more details coming soon… as soon as we can catch up with this whirlwind! PLEASE keep us in your prayers because we NEED them. (This is all in ADDITION to Bobby’s current work in Church Planting throughout Latin America.) And please send donations to help make this project happen. We need operating funds quickly to get this up and running. We also need work teams to come and help improve the property. Every bit counts as God pulls His people together to accomplish amazing results.
Thank you for your support and prayers!
Bobby, Tamitha, Jordan, Jonathan & James
