Facilities Team Report

Financial status as at 23 October 2012

The facilities team is glad to present the following report regarding the ongoing project.

First and most important is to thank the living God for his grace that has enabled the works to commence. We will not tire to recognize the series of miracles that has made this possible. Notable among these are the miracles regarding city council approval and interest free loans from members. As you will see in the following report there is much to honour God for in the giving since July. Faithful givers you have been great and have indeed made HIS praise GLORIOUS!

  1. Monthly Pledges - In July 2012 the facilities team launched an initiative to raise funds through monthly pledges. These monthly pledges have increased month to month and now stand at stand at 65% of the target of Kshs 250,000/- per month. The intention of this specific initiative is to have enough funds that can cover the loan repayments that will run for 24 months starting this October 2012. The figure below represents the above in graphic form.

It is planned that the phase 1A project will be complete by end of November, 2012. The contractor is on site and WORKING. Pray for good quality work and good weather.

5.5 million Target

Our fundraising goal for phase 1A is Kshs 5.5 million. Many of you will recollect that we have been availed interest free loans by members totalling to Kshs 4.2 million.  Of the money raised since July 2012 Kshs 400,000/- is available for the works. The balance has been expended on professional fees, approvals, and preliminary works such as the relocation of the Sunday school classrooms. The Final graph shows that the balance needed to be raised to meet the 5.5 million target is Kshs 900,000/= only.

We are almost there!

Just as Caleb said "let us go up at once and take possession for, (with God’s help), we are well able to overcome it”. (Numbers 13:30) 

Brace yourself for the coming gift Sunday on 04 November 2012. Expect great things to be done by the Almighty God through your generous giving.

Finally it is our prayer that on the first Sunday of December 2012, (02 December, 2012), we will not only have finished phase 1A but will have commenced fund raising for the works ahead.

Hallelujah! See what God has done!
