Challenge in Ecuador!
The Sembrador Church of the Nazarene in downtown Guayaquil, Ecuador functions with the Master’s Plan strategy. For the past 3 years they have been renting a facility with option to buy. The church has invested over $120,000 in remodeling the former warehouse into a beautiful sanctuary with classrooms, bathrooms, etc. The church is one of our most exciting and fastest growing churches in the NAF.
Now the owner has told the church that they must proceed with the purchase and has set the price at $300,000. This is actually $200,000 less than the initial price when this whole process began. The local church has been paying $2500 per month for rent while remodeling.
First of all, we would like to ask you to help us pray that God would perform the miracle needed to make the purchase possible. Secondly, the local church needs our help because they are financially strapped after the remodel and rent. As the Lord might lead you, we need donations of all sizes to reach the 300K goal! If someone would feel led to loan a significant amount, the local church can repay at 3K per month. You could talk to Dwight Rich about this possibility by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to their tithes and offerings, the church sells food and has worked in other ways to raise the finances for their remodeling.
