Colin & Natalie Burnett (Day 13), New Church Building
Pray for the Burnetts (Ireland, Day 13) as their assembly considers moving to a new, more central, location.
“We are writing to ask for your prayers regarding a building opportunity that has come up. A furniture shop in town has relocated and the building has come up for rent.
After meeting with the agent, Natalie and I along with Andrew and Gillian met to pray about the next step. We had asked the Lord to open the way for a long-term lease with a minimum of 5 years, at the same rent rate we are presently paying and no rent while we are doing work. The next day we met with the agent again and he called the landlord who agreed to everything plus the rent would be 50 euro a month less than we presently pay.
The building is across the road from the Catholic church in a central location. There is quite a bit of work to do to get it suitable for the fellowship, including getting a Fire Certificate. We have hired an architect to submit our floor plan as this is the application procedure. He will contact us soon with a price and then submit the plan. We are praying, and ask for your prayers, that if the Lord is with us that we will get the certificate. Once we have the Fire Certificate we can start work.
We value your prayers as we move in this direction.
—Colin and Natalie”
