Land issue status

The Lord is so GOOD! Here is the follow up on the land issue. It is a beautiful picture of how the body of Christ is coming together to help Mulungwishi in our time of need.

The Swiss connection

First of all, Connexio (the Swiss Methodist Mission Board) responded to Bishop’s appeal by sending $40,000 immediately as a loan so that we could get the issues taken care of. We then wanted the property surveyed and staked out since there has been so much encroachment on the land. This was done and the survey included all of the mountain in our property. New markers were placed around the property. It was then on to the negotiating process with the government title company. Long story short, it was settled for $37,000. Other expenses brought the total to about $40,000. The money was paid and we hope that within a couple of weeks the new titles will be in our hands. We are so thankful for so many of you praying.

Huge loan to pay off

Now comes the time to bring our financial resources together to pay off the loan. The GBGM is looking into what they can do. A number of friends and churches have contacted us and want to help. One person has put together an article for the Eastern PA Annual Conference paper. Others are contacting friends. It will be exciting to see how the Lord is going to bring this all together.
