Requesting Prayer for Our Church

By the middle of February 2009 our deposit at our church's current rented space will be through and we will either have to move to another place or renegotiate for a new contract. Our church's present location is at the third floor of a building which has a wet market below and outside of the building.  This setting has become not coducive for our church ( as we also have plans of starting a pre-school so we are looking for a space on the ground floor, and tiles or wood flooring are not necessary.

Our current budget for rent is P20,000 a month and at that rate, the available spaces are too small for our church to congregate every Sunday and hold children's Sunday school.  The place preferrably has to be within the vicinity of Kalayaan Avenue near Barangays Guadalupe Nuevo, Pitogo, Pinagkaisahan and South Cembo area because of our existing feeding ministry to families in that area.  Our church, in partnership with Manna Worldwide, feeds about 60 children from Tuesday to Friday every week, lunch and supper.

We ask prayers as we continue to search for direction, whether we need to stay and renegotiate or find a place big enough for our church activities but fits our budget - something that is hard to find in the Makati area.  But we claim the promise that nothing is impossible with God, so we are hopeful and are anticipating how God will make a way for this to be settled.  We thank you in advance for your prayers.
