Project to purchase land/building

We have recently started a project to raise funds to purchase a building for our church. New Life Baptist Church was started in 2004 and has been in the same location since 2006. The membership has been faithful for many years. As the church moves into the last phase of becoming an autonomous church we desire to alleviate the burden of monthly rent by purchasing a building. leave the church with a building, free and clear. In order to see this vision become a reality, we are moving in a two-pronged approach. First, New Life Baptist Church of Chiang Mai is doing a fundraising campaign to encourage the membership to give towards the project. Our church’s goal is to raise 1,000,000 Baht (about US$35,000) of which we have raised 500,000 Baht as of Feb 2022. These funds will be used to renovate and make necessary repairs to the building. The second prong is asking churches in the US to contribute towards the purchase of the building. The current price of $165,000 is guaranteed until the end of 2022. As of Feb 2022 we have approximately $80,000. This is a great opportunity for our church and we are excited about how the Lord will work in this program.

The building we are trying to purchase was originally selling for over $200,000 but has been reduced to $165,000 because of COVID and a glut of properties on the market. While this still seems …
