Current Building Fund Thermometer At the time of this writing we have raised $415,312 toward the payoff of our new building in Olive Branch, MS. This is 85% of our total goal of $489,000. We thank God and many generous brethren for enabling us to make such rapid progress. We are not, however, done yet! We still have $73,688 left to pay. The “doubling offer” is still in effect for contributions of $500 of more. An anonymous donor will match your contribution, in effect making it worth twice as much. What better way to use your money in the Lord’s service than for it to be doubled? Once we completely pay off the building we will no longer have to pay rent thus resulting in a future savings of $7,050 per month. This is money that can go to broadcasting the gospel instead of facility charges.

I receive a lot of questions about the status of the new building and our impending move. We have closed on the building and have been working inside. One of the rooms used to be occupied by a cosmetics company and was hot pink! We decided to do some painting. We have also started moving in furniture and relocating staff. Adam Vaughn has already moved to Memphis and is working in the new offices in Olive Branch. It is our intention to be relocate the entire operation by the end of 2012. We are also working on satellite studios in several locations.

Our biggest remaining project at this time is the construction work on our studio. Though our new building is a fine structure, we are having to do an addition in order to adequately accommodate our filming needs. Anyone who has ever been involved in a building project knows the unforeseen delays that come with a project like this, but thus far things are going very smoothly and we optimistically anticipate that it will be also be done by our year end goal.

Please keep this in your prayers.

Thanks and God bless!
