We had a very good Men with a Mission Breakfast this morning. There were about 20 men out I guess and we had a sweet time of eating, fellowship, and prayer. There are often tears at our meetings, which reveals soft and humble hearts. We cried to the Lord with Thanksgiving and Petition. We prayed that our goal of $30,000 next week would be reached and exceeded. We reminded the Lord that we believed in His great power and that He of His own will raised up this church. We asked Him to do a miracle to bring in the money so that we could build when our plans are approved - we acknowledged that as He does it, He will get the glory.
I want to encourage those who may be hesitant about building to remember the need we see every Sunday and the fact that there is no restraint to the Lord. Every Sunday for the last "who -knows-how-long" we have exceeded the maximum occupancy of our building. We do not break code of course because we overflow to the two temporary modular buildings. Now I ask you, cannot the God who keeps bringing in people simply bring in the amount needed to build an adequate facility? Do we in our small faith really believe that He is giving us new families and new converts and intends us to to remain in trailers to minister to them? God has provided adequate houses of worship for His people for thousands of years, and we look to Him humbly to supply for Lighthouse.
I ask you to give in Faith for a new facility to reach our Jerusalem. There is an immediate need, and we have a God that will answer as we pray and give in faith.
