We are so excited to announce that GAP has embarked upon the journey of building new facilities on Elk Ridge! Since acquiring the property several years ago through generous partners, God in His perfect timing has lead us to begin this project. As you know, years of prayer was answered last fall as God provided water on the property; and through a series of events this year, He has made it clear that the time is now.
Currently, we have an architect who has created drawings of all the buildings God has led us to place on the property. He is now drawing up the blueprints for Phase One, which will consist of a Distribution/Office Complex and one staff house. As you know, we have outgrown our current building and are in desperate need of a new one. God has given us a clear vision of what ministry here at GAP will one day look like and we know that our current building is not sufficient. This is a God-sized task and if it were not for the leading of God, I would be terrified. We will be sharing, with you, our faithful partners, the blueprints and 3-D drawings as they become available from the architect. I felt impressed to share these details with you and ask for your prayers during this exciting project. I am spending a great deal of energy working with the architect, engineer, and surveyor at this time. Please pray God will provide a project manager that will take some of this load off my shoulders, especially since I know little to nothing about construction.
We need partners to join us, in standing in the GAP; by partnering together to build this much needed facility. Please pray for God to provide in such a way that everyone will see His all sufficiency and join together in praise of the great I AM! Even before this announcement, God already laid it upon hearts to start giving to the building fund. If you would like to give a one-time gift or even a monthly gift, designated to the building fund, please contact me for more information.
As God continues to lead us into the future, we have become even more certain of His mission for us here is eastern Kentucky. There are hurting, hungry people scattered throughout these beautiful Appalachian Mountains that have not been engaged with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to meet people at their point of need for the purpose of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. This would not be possible without you, our partners. We have been standing in the GAP since 1999. Will you continue standing in the GAP with us by ensuring future generations will receive Hope by partnering with us in this building project?
