Meeting Place for the Church in Tbilisi, Republic of GeorgiaAugust 7, 2017 | Posted by in Uncategorized
Please designate your contribution for “Tbilisi property” to LME, or to the Church in Cupertino.
The purpose of this letter is to fellowship about the need for a meeting place for the church in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia.
All the serving brothers involved with Tbilisi are in fellowship and all feel very good to proceed forward, if possible, on a piece of property that some brothers have found just recently. There is a real need for saints in the church there to have their own meeting place. They have been meeting in a very inadequate location for years.
Furthermore, in recent months trainings have been carried out in Tbilisi for the saints from Ir@n, or “country X.” In fellowship with some brothers involved in that work, we felt good to look for a facility that could meet the needs not only of the church in Tbilisi but also of the trainings for the saints from that country.
The above-mentioned property is within a 10-minute walk from the metro. It is detached and private. The building is 3 stories and 375 sq meters, or over 4000 sq feet. It has 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The lot size is 470 sq meters, or over 5000 sq. feet. It has a large yard and plenty of parking space and potential to build more. A minor remodel would provide a room for meetings of 150 people.
The church in Tbilisi needs the Body to be able to acquire a meeting place since the church there is quite poor and unable to meet this need on their own. The price for this property is very reasonable, $270,000 USD. In addition there is a need of $30,000 USD for the minor remodel. The brothers are hoping to put $90,000 USD down in August. The remaining amount would be due 30 days later. However, this may be negotiable. It is likely that the balance due date could be extended.
As you can see, the need is somewhat urgent. We hope that the Body could bear this smaller member of the Body which has a need.
Please pray for this.
