One of the best things about serving at Love in the Name of Christ is watching God provide for the ministry on a daily basis. We see it when items show up in the warehouse ‘just in time’ to make scheduled deliveries each week, when volunteers with just the right skills come forward when needed most, and when unexpected financial support comes in.
We are witness to God’s extraordinary provision for His ministry once again! Through the incredible generosity of a faithful donor, we have signed a contract to purchase our current building.
Earlier this summer, our landlord informed us he was putting the building up for sale. The prospect of finding a new facility or being able pull together resources to purchase a building were daunting. This was a chance for God to show us how small our imaginations are compared to what He may have in store for Love INC. We were setting God up for a miracle.
We looked at other local properties for rent or sale. We explored options for financing a purchase. We also trusted and prayed.
When God worked a miracle to provide a ram for Abraham to sacrifice in place of his son Isaac, Abraham named the place “The Lord Will Provide”. Well, the Lord provided us with our own miracle in the form of this generous donor.
We invite you to be part of this amazing story! Just as when you buy a home, we have a bit of work to be done. The building needs a few repairs, as well as more office space. Once we close on the sale, we will launch a capital campaign to fund these new needs.
Please be in prayer about how you might join our churches in this new endeavor. Through God’s grace, we pray that this building will become a tool that enables the churches of Lake County to be even more impactful as they seek to transform lives and our community, in the Name of Christ.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. ~Ephesians 3:20
