Cost: $100 per person; $50 for children 5-10 years old; free for younger ones.

* The church sponsors nearly half of the cost. It would be beautiful in His sight if saints who have the means would give more, fulfilling 2 Cor.8:15 (see also Rcv note 1)
As it is written, “He who gathered much had no excess, and he who gathered little had no lack.”
Phil.4:17b … I seek the fruit which increases to your account.
2 Cor.9:6-7 But take note of this: He who sows sparingly shall also sparingly reap; and he who sows with blessings shall also with blessings reap; Each one as he has purposed in his heart, not out of sorrow or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Property for Addis Ababa (June 2018)
|The second burden released was regarding the purchase of a property to be used for the church in Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia) and the training in Ethiopia. The church life in Ethiopia began with 50 college students in Addis Ababa in 2001, and has since grown to 350 saints in Addis Ababa, as well as over 20 other localities where saints are meeting throughout the country. In addition, a Full-time Pursuing training began in August 2016, and by the end of June, 58 saints will have passed through at least one year of training. There is a growing hunger for the truth in the country with many seeking ones on the campuses and in the communities, and there is even a need to care for returning African students who were gained while studying in China! However, the limited facilities of the church have been inadequate to provide for all of the needs. The brothers in have located an excellent property in capital city of Addis Ababa which is 5 miles from the city center and the airport. The property is 1.75 acres, and currently has a 2-floor residential building with 9,000 sq ft of space. This could be renovated to be used for offices for the work or residential space for serving ones. The brothers would also like to build a meeting hall which would fit 800-1000 saints, a training center with dormitories, and a hospitality facility for saints travelling for trainings and conferences. The property will serve as a center for furthering the Lord’s move across Africa. The current owners have been quite favorable toward the brothers, and have offered to sell the property for 2.5 million USD, although the assessed value is 3.5 million USD, and land prices have been nearly doubling on a yearly basis for the past several years. A down payment of 365,000 USD is due by June 15, and full payment is expected by August 15. The church in Addis Ababa plans to contribute 100,000 USD for the purchase. Details for giving are below.To give for the property in Addis Ababa, please follow the instructions at the end of the announcement that was handed out (link here).
Champaign Meeting Hall Support (Mar.2018)
|Brothers,We have been fellowshipping locally and with some other brothers both within the Midwest and outside the Midwest about raising funds for a potential meeting hall for the church in Champaign. The church here has been meeting for the last eighteen years in the student union building on campus. However, there is a building that is one block from campus that is a fraternity building which is up for sale. We feel it is probably the best building we will be able to find that is so close to campus. All the brothers both in and outside the Midwest that we have shown it to are impressed with the building and its usefulness.
Update on the current situation: If we can complete the purchase of the building by the end of March, the owner will give us the $10,000 a month rent check that he gets. To close this quickly, we have an immediate need for an additional $80,000. We plan to take possession in July, and by that time we will need $120,000 more to complete renovations and upgrades to make the building ADA compliant.

|May 2017 update: our target for 2017 is 350K.—————-(Excerpt of the letter to the churches) Dear brothers,As we fellowshipped last Saturday afternoon with the brothers, the Lord’s move in Northern California has been progressing. We have surveyed the situation of the churches in Northern California, and realized that many areas of opportunity for the Lord are in smaller or newer localities that do not have the financial ability to support full-time workers. We recognize that more workers are necessary to commence a work in nearby cities, communities, and campuses. For this reason, we have established the NorCal Work Fund aiming to release the supply in the Body to meet the need of the Body.At this time, we will focus on the one-time goal of reaching $250,000 by the end of 2016. Then, starting in 2017, we would like to establish a more consistent ongoing support by monthly (or regular) pledging by churches and individual saints.We trust that in opening this fund to the saints and the churches, the Lord will touch many saints “to support such ones that we may become fellow workers in the truth” (3 John 8). …
This is a brief summary of the NorCal Work Fund for saints to know its goal, function, and practical details for supporting it. Purpose To support the full-time serving ones in a new situation where local support is inadequate. Examples: workers at Sonoma State, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Chico, etc. This will not replace the current organic support by nearby localities. This is not intended to support an existing work in the localities, e.g., Berkeley full timers. This is not to support FTTA trainees. The fund is intended to support all kinds of full timers serving in Northern California, including young people’s workers, community workers, and language workers, and some who may serve in more than one kind of work simultaneously (e.g., young people and college). Oversight The Fund will be overseen by a group of mature serving brothers … All disbursements are to be considered under much prayer and fellowship, and agreed upon by unanimous decision. Accounting Name of the account: NorCal Work Fund, to be handled practically as a special account opened under the auspices of the church in Berkeley. All disbursements are to come from the church in Berkeley special account as directed by the overseeing brothers. Donations Donations are welcome from both individuals and local churches. Pledges of one-time giving or periodic giving are both acceptable. The initial target is $250,000. Contributions from individuals are to be understood as being in addition to the regular offering of 10% and 5% to the local churches. Electronic donations are now available, and up-to-date information concerning donations can be accessed from the NorCal Work Fund link at http://www.norcalchurches.

We do believe that the Lord has been with us these past two weeks of NorCal GTCA. We would like to form workplace Bible studies as a way to follow up on some of the contacts we have met, as well as obtain new contacts through social media. We have created a landing page for these Bible studies located at norcalbiblestudy.org.
This landing page can be forwarded to existing contacts for them to sign up for a workplace Bible study. We have also created a Facebook page (see item 2 below) which has a “sign up” button that links to the landing page for the Bible studies. We would like to ask you to help promote this page by:
- Forwarding this page (norcalbiblestudy.org) to the appropriate contacts you already have
- Promote this page in your Facebook account by following these instructions: Link to instructions
May the Lord continue to bless His move in Northern California
