Not that we did not have the complete assurance that God would make it happen, but finally, after four months of working to satisfy the city inspectors, NEW LIFE BAPTIST CHURCH has received permission to use their new building! Glory to God!!
The three stipulations that the City Authorities placed on the church were the following:
** Resolve issues related to the driveway documentation.
** Build a safety barricade to protect our people from the dilapidated adobe wall next door.
** Beautify the front, including planting grass.
As you can see, the issues have been solved. The men and women of the Church went work to complete these requirements, and on Tuesday, Sept. 4th, the City Hall issued our occupancy permit. That is a wonderful and major relief!
This is such good news, we just wanted to post it here, where more and more of our supporters and prayer partners are looking to see the news and requests. Praise God for the patient work done by Pastor Yentzen and our missionary colleague, Duane Cross, to make this all come about.
