We are excited to be in the process of purchasing a expansion on our ministry for kids
God has brought us back to this property several times over this past summer. After touring the property the first time, we found out it was under contract. We thought that might be the end of it, but the idea of having this space for kids just wouldn't leave Melanie's heart and mind, so she called the real estate agent and said if this property ever came available again to please give her a call.
Several weeks went by and Melanie received a phone call that the property was back on the market. Melanie was very excited but still wasn't sure how this was going to happen. The church wanted $695,000 for the property. Melanie asked many to join her in prayer about the property, and decided to wait on God to show the way. The real estate agent called again and said she had an investor that wanted to purchase the property for City Lights, we would just need 20% down and it would be 9% interest. In seeking the opinion of the City Lights board and others they all came to the agreement that the interest rate was too high.
So, the discussion of the property became on hold, and Melanie and others prayed for direction.
The City Lights board and Melanie felt it time to turn in a contract on the property after talking with a real estate attorney and with the hopes of getting funding from those that wanted to help and a loan. With the contract to offer the church $625,000. Only to find out the property was back under contract with another buyer. All those involved were crushed, many said God will have a better property, but Melanie continued to pray for this property and it was long received an email that the church seller would like to offer the property to City Lights for $50,000 less if they were still interested in the property. The other contract wasn't going to go through due to some complications.
So on September 1, 2021 City Lights Ministry is under contract for the property on 910 Palmer Ln. We are praying to close at the end of September.
If you would like to help us in the purchase of this property please give on our donation link.
God can do the impossible, this journey is reminding us of that
