We came to work Tuesday morning and the guys were here starting on the new kids’ building! We have been waiting for this day for a long time. Mark sent out a fantastic email Tuesday. If you didn’t get a chance to read it here it is:
I’m so excited to give you the news that construction on our new KidSpace started about two hours ago! We are underway on the building that will allow us to effectively double the size of the environments where we engage kids with the most powerful message in the world. And it’s not just that we’re doubling the size, the innovative nature of each of the themed settings is going to be absolutely mind-blowing! Even as I write, I can hear the equipment working outside and the sound is totally musical.
The fact that we’ve been able to get started makes this weekend’s offering even more critical. Just to refresh, I’ve asked NewSpringers to bring a one-time offering to help us get started, (this offering at this stage could make a HUGE difference as to what’s possible) and to make a weekly commitment for these crucial next twelve months of construction.
I wouldn’t begin to suggest an amount to you, I’m just encouraging you to ask the Lord what He would want you to do. Call me naïve, but I believe if each one of us will respond to His impulse, everything we need will be there. Would you be willing to talk to God about this? Would you place your heart within his reach?
The best part is that God has promised that He will take our gifts and make His work happen, and then turn around and bless us with more than we gave. I love to remember that God’s not a charity case looking for donors, He’s an entrepreneur looking for partners!
Exciting days are ahead and I am just happy to be along for this outstanding ride! See you this weekend!
