Second payment was made!
We started this new year with a looming deadline on the 15th of January and nearly $30,000 still needed for the second payment for the Chile Training Center. We prayed, shared the need, and waited on God. What unfolded during the following days is a story we’ll undoubtedly tell for years to come.
It all started with a promise from our friends at Mission Joint Venture International. They committed to match all gifts given before the deadline up to $25,000. In the face of this urgent need and great opportunity, our incredible team of supporters stepped up to the challenge. The youth group from our home church rallied together to give over $900. A small ladies’ group in North Carolina sacrificially gave $1,000. Dozens of pastors, churches, and friends dug down deep and gave from the depths of their hearts. At the end of the 2 weeks, we heard from another supporting church in North Carolina who gave $10,000! This gift finished funding the match! Then the unexpected happened. A dear church in Tennessee called to let us know they were sending $25,000 more! This gift blew us way past the 2nd deadline and well into the third and final payment.
We now have 100 days left to raise $42,910 to fund the third and last payment. Please pray and consider giving towards this final goal. You can give online at 250project.com/give/ or mail your donation to the support address below. Label all gifts: Chile Land Fund
There are few things more exhilarating than getting the FaceTime calls, text messages, phone calls, or emails saying that dear friends from all around Chile, the United States, and other parts of the world have been moved by the Lord to partner with our God-given dream – the dream to train Chileans to plant churches at home and abroad for the glory of God. All of the Chile Training Center team says “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
