Hi all, I won't go into all the details because that would be wrong. But as of last week our pastor was told that we had to pay 1000 a month to hold service for just 4hrs a month use . Of course this was an outrageous request and we left the building. We are currently trying to pay off all of our late rent payments to our old landlord,and still have over 4000 left to pay. What we are praying for is that a church "may" allow us to use their building for 4 hours a month on Saturdays until we can get our existing debt paid off. This task has proven to be very difficult as not very many churches are open to helping. Even though we are a very very small congregation. We have about 20 to 30 people and the numbers are dropping fast . We do have a home that we meet in on Sunday morning s but its not large enough to have to many people there all at once. It seems that as soon as our church fell into financial hardship people just started leaving. As though some felt that the financial burden should be left to the Pastor which I think is so very wrong but we do love them and wish them well. I know that God will provide all of our needs . I n the past 8 months we have seen this looming debt go from 20000 to now just above 4000 in a few months time. But debt is debt no matter what the dollar amount is and we need this "monkey " off our backs and we need a small place to worship for just 2 hours a week. We've got some people that feel like our little church is dissolving away and they need to be comforted and know that this is not true . I know that the few people that stay are hard core Christians ,or on their way to being hard core. =) We need pray, pray for people to start walking in their gifting ,pray for resources to become available to us,pray for comfort to the broken hearted . We just need a little oasis in our desert . If we could hold serve in a tent we would but it's not safe for our sick and elderly to be out in 105 degree heat. We'll make it through this but we do need prayer . We need a direction. Thank you all for your prayers and kindness. ((((((Hugs))))))) D.
