The biggest project we are working diligently on right now is the building of a multipurpose facility. The facility, called the Lighthouse Learning Center, will allow use to better reach the nations with the Gospel. Also, it will strengthen the integrity of the outreach platforms we have created and will continue to create in the future. We believe this is our way of saying to the darkness, “we are here to stay”. The building is strategically located between two major universities in Chiang Rai.
The project started with a simple vision and God has been faithful to bring that to life. We have sectioned the building process into 2 specific phases. The first phase of this project was about clarifying the vision and purchasing the land. We are overjoyed to share with you that we have purchased the land and have entered into the second phase of the project.
The second phase includes the actual construction of the building, as well as partnering with construction volunteer teams. We are at a place in the building process where we are putting the final touches on what is called the “footing” which will provide the stability of the foundation for the whole building. We should be pouring concrete very soon! Here are a few pictures taken today and a couple of days ago. Please continue to pray for us.
We are still raising the last part of funding for the building. If you have not given and would like to, we are still taking donations. We are requesting that all funding from the U.S.A. or other countries outside of Thailand for this specific project to be routed through NTIM. All of your donations to NTIM are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to NTIM, P.O. Box 26115, Birmingham, AL, 35260 or you may donate online here http://gontim.org/main/donate/.
We are abundantly thankful for all the generous donations that we have received this year. Thank you for joining God in His work among the nations in and around Northern Thailand.
