Hey Family,

First and foremost, I thank God in remembrance of you always in every prayer of mine for you all, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. Thank you also for the many who showed up to our members meeting. Each meeting is a special time, and if you were there, you know God was moving. One of our members put it simply and best. She said, “It’s a great season to be alive.” Yes and Amen! 

Here are a few updates I wanted to share with you regarding our building. Feel free to include all of these in your prayers.

  • Our interior lobby design has been finalized by our interior architect. 3D renderings are coming, so I’ll be showing them to you as soon as we receive them.
  • We are working on our initial demolition prep now, doing our best to preserve re-usable items such as ceiling tiles and doors. A lot of them are in great shape and will save us money.
  • True demo rolling in with heavy machinery is scheduled for 10/31, pending the finalization for our loan. 
  • Construction loan application is complete and we are now awaiting the lender’s processing. Our goal is to obtain approval and funding initiated by the end of the month. Please continue to pray for our loan to come to pass, for without it, we can’t start our demo, which impacts our move in date. 
  • Pray for the $2 million dollar delta to be met in the future, that was required by the bank to achieve the loan, which was temporarily satisfied through the 14 families that offered their collateral.

That’s all for now. Thank you for all of your investment. God chose each of us by name to make His name great in our cities, and I fervently believe the best is yet to come. What a ride! 

Christ is all,

Pastor Ryan Kwon
