I write this blog with happy news about Project Rehoboth. Rehoboth is the Hebrew word for “wide open spaces.” We launched Project Rehoboth a few years ago with the goal of raising money to purchase land and a building. God multiplied our efforts and provided a Rehoboth at 1373 Lobsinger Line, north of Waterloo last June.
We are moving forward on our journey towards our Rehoboth. We have submitted applications for building permits and zoning variances. Upon approval, demolition and renovations will begin (DV). We hope to start worshipping at 1373 Lobsinger Line in the first half of 2020. We are firming up the budget as I write this email. But our educated estimate is that it will cost just over $1 million for the whole project. We need to raise money. Here’s the good news: an anonymous donor has offered to match every gift, dollar for dollar, up to an accumulated maximum of $100,000 between now and December 15, 2019. If you give $1, it will be turned into $2. If you give $5,000, it will be turned into $10,000. If we raise $100,000, we actually raise $200,000. God continues to multiply our loaves and fish!
We believe God has called us to start King Alfred Academy, foster a genuinely Christian community within the vicinity of our new facility, and plant churches all the way up the Bruce Peninsula, all to rebuild a Christian Ontario. We’ll start the job, and we’ll pray that our children and grandchildren can finish it. Please consider how you and your family can give towards Project Rehoboth before December 15 so that your financial gift can be doubled. You can give online here or into the offering bag on Sunday. Just make sure you mark your gift “Rehoboth” so it can be doubled before December 15.
God is regularly answering our prayers. If He has answered our prayers in the past, why wouldn’t He continue to answer our prayers in the future? I believe the best days are yet to come. Let’s take this province for Christ Almighty!
