It's done! Praise the Lord! God put on the heart of a Christian here in Mexico to help this ministry with a building. While he already invested in a small plot of land for us, he believed that the church needed more land, so he asked us to keep looking for the owners of the property on either side of us, or find two plots together somewhere. We did find a plot that the owner was willing to trade with us, and allow us to purchase the neighboring plot from him as well. Then his parents, who owned the plot on the other side, found out that we were looking for more land, and offered to sell us their plot too. When Bro. Jaimez called his friend who was helping us, and asked him if he wanted to go ahead with this opportunity, he said, "That's so exciting! This morning I was praying about your land, and God gave me this verse. Isa 54:2-3(2) 'Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;(3) For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.' Do it!" So the church owns three plots together, and is ready to plan a building that will be big enough for our growing church. This is wonderful to watch, and I feel privileged just to be a part. God is faithful!
