Greetings from Mexico,
We have some exciting news to share with you. As God has continued to bless our church, we have undertaken a new building project. In this update, we want to tell you all about it! Over the years, God has continually brought first time guests and local visitors to our church. Unfortunately, we have not done a great job of keeping them, which was a focus for us last year as we began our New Believers class to plug them in and disciple them.
This program has been affective in retaining our guests and at present, we find ourselves in need of a sanctuary expansion and new fellowship areas. To meet this need, we are adding a sanctuary expansion and two new patios to our church facility!
First off, in phase 1 we are redesigning and improving our patio fellowship area. This project has begun and we have already graded and enclosed our new Patio out in front of the church and it measures 50% larger than our previous one. This expanded space, will be used for fellowshipping, eating (of course) and also house our upcoming connections center which will be designed to help our congregation get connected to the right ministries and leaders at the church. Later on, in stage three of this project, we will be building a smaller 2nd patio that will be located on the roof of our sanctuary expansion. (In the space located above our present patio)
Stage 2 is our sanctuary expansion. If you have visited our church here in Mexico, the old patio inside of the gates and fence is going to be transformed into our sanctuary expansion. Eventually the back walls of our sanctuary will be blown out, and a 250+ seating area will be added.
This sanctuary addition, will not only provide more space for our main services in the sanctuary, but will also have the capability of being closed off and have a self-enclosed audio and video system. This extra room will provide for us a much needed medium size meeting room that is able to host large meetings and bible studies, and mid-sized banquets.
Finally, I want to once again thank you for supporting our family as your missionaries. We are honored and thankful that you have chosen to partner with us and we love and appreciate you very much!
Con mucho amor de Mexico, (with much love from Mexico)
Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel
