This week we have 400 leaders from across the region here for our fall training and equipping conference, walking on new paths that were just finished!
We continue to pray for the permits that would allow us to expand this training facility with an event center to accommodate more leaders at these kinds of conferences.
The tent we purchased 4 years ago at least allows us to have 400 people, but we're packed in, and it's less than ideal conditions.
It's been almost three years since we started the permit process, with the vision to build that event center to the left of the soccer field down below the hotel.
Right now the paperwork is at the regional building office and we've been told we'll have news by November 8 on whether or not it will be issued.
Pray with us for it!! It has been blocked by many people over the past three years, but we have answered all of their complaints and now if they have any others, they would actually have to sue the government in order to block it again.
I'm reminded of the verse in Proverbs that says, "The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he guides it wherever he pleases."
Even though we have had opposition, we know that ultimately God has the final word, so we trust Him for it, and believe Him to guide this process to completion in his perfect timing.
