Dear Mobile Baptist Builders Team Members,
As you know, our mission trip this summer will be the Chinese Bible Church of Greater Lowell. Applications are arriving; please continue to send them to me. Let me know if, by chance, you did not receive a letter and application, and we will send one out to you (or, you can go to our MBB website, www.mobilebaptistbuilders.com). The website has the application. Click the application button on the home page, print it out, fill it in, and put it in the mail to me. My address is at the bottom of the application.
One of the lead pastors of the Chinese Bible Church, Gideon, and his wife, Irene, are coming to Mobile, AL. If you are available, and I know this may be difficult for many of you, please join us, at 6:30pm, on Saturday, March 17, at our house for a southern potluck dinner. Pastor and his wife have never been to Alabama, so be prepared to give them a warm southern welcome. He will tell us more about his church and the construction process and give us an opportunity to ask questions. Please try to come if at all possible.
Also, on March 17, we will have a local work day. Justin Hase, a young pastor out of Dayspring Baptist Church, is branching out and starting a new church, and we want to help. We will build a stage, put up walls, pressure wash, and repair a metal roof. The project is located at Seven Hills Baptist Church, 8950 Airport Boulevard, Mobile, AL 36608 (directly across from Baker High School). Lunch will be provided. Let me know if you plan to join us.
We are a praying bunch and, besides praying for our upcoming mission trip, please continue to pray for team members Sam Elder and Mike Chance, both with serious health issues.
I can't wait to see you
MBB Team Members;
The Project" Chinese Bible Church of Greater Lowell" The address is 197 Littleton Rd. Clelmsford, MA 01824.
The church has requested that we work along side them to help build their new church building. The church consist of three congregations. A Mandarin congregation, a Cantonese congregation and a English speaking congregation . They total about
300 members. The size of the project is about 19,000 sq ft. Our team along with Maryland Builders for Christ will be framing. They plan on using a General Contractor to complete the project.\
Tony and I along with Rick Buck and Pastor Sam from New York went to Boston in November to look over the project. We all feel that this is a worthy project .
The church is very excited and very scared at the same time. They have never done anything like this before. We both will be doing thing different than we have before. I believe that this is definitely a GOD thing.
Our dates at this time is June 2nd through the 9th. Please add this project to your prayer list. We have lots of things to work out.
I will be sending out a formal invitation in a few weeks. I just wanted to give you this information so that you can be praying about what God wants you to do concerning this project.
I cant't wait
