Praise the Lord, we have found office space! Yeah! In our search around the city, one of our items on our "wishlist" has been checked off! God gave us a great little spot for an office and a multi-functional room. We hope to use that other room as a training room, or for practically anything. We are still searching for a building for church, we found a really great place, but it needs to be approved by the Headmaster of the University. Who we still have not been able to get an appointment with. "We'll call you." Has been the response from his secretary and the secretary of the Mayor. Please pray that there would be a space in their schedule for us to get plugged into to meet with these two men. Without their stamp of approval, (literally) we can't move forward.
But, in the mean time, we are going to change the format a bit while we are still in my house. Up until this time, it has felt more like small group than church. Which has been great up to this point, but we are really feeling the need to step it up a bit. So this means I get to rearrange my furniture! We are also going to be buying some new chairs, so that people aren't sitting on the floor, and getting some better lighting.
We are also going to be splitting our small group meeting on Wed into two groups, families and young adults. This will start on Feb 14.
Please pray also, as I want to get a small group going for women in ministry in our area. To this time, there is no venue really, for women in ministry to band together for encouragement and fellowship. So I wanted to change that! I've been talking to a few people, and those I've talked to are really excited about this prospect. It's just a matter of figuring out when....
