We are so very happy to finally start the construction works of the place where believers will be gathering to study and hear the Word. I am also glad that I bought my house plot just next to the one for the church (the house is on the right in the picture below. We have often saved up finances for keeping foreign visitors in hotels). Even so, that has not gone without the blessing of the Lord. However, finally there is a place that will be called home with no cost. If the Lord tarries, it is my desire for this to be a house of prayer, love and fellowship for ministers and believers. All this reminds me of the time when our fellowship had just started as a very small gathering in the living room of my mother. She was Catholic then. But one day the Lord healed her of her disease and she got baptised in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and ever since she has been a faithful member of the fellowship.
Back in the years when I used to be in Pentecostal Holiness Church, the church owned their building and it was always wonderful for individual christians to go there at their convenience to pray, fast, and study.Thats the time when I spent so much time alone in prayer and seeking the Lord. Those years will forever be remembered as the time I developed a closer relationship with God. Over the years, after Believers Assembly started, gathering in a classroom has been quite an inconvenience. But to God be all the glory who has supplied all our needs according to His riches in glory. Now we have a place where we have started our construction works. The place is in a good, well-planned and serene area.The building will have a library, Bible study and fellowship hall. We are also glad that our recordings for the YouTube channel will be clearer in sound quality. But all this is only how far our eyes and desires can see. But we are comforted with words of Martin Luther – “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
All the works havent been an easy process, but it is so amazing to see local believers so zealous and determined to see the structure completed as soon as possible.
As we build this structure we are careful not to get obsessed with the physical block-work. There are spiritual ‘blocks’ we must look for and establish in the Faith.
It is “living stones” which will constitute the building of the Holy City, New Jerusalem. On 1st, 2nd and 3rd December we will be having a crusade around this area where the construction works are taking place. Join us in prayer for the Light of God to reach out to that ‘stone’ which is still lost in the dark.
