By Faith We Will Own Our Church Building”. Friends of La Roca, We hope that this summer has been filled with great rest, fun, and lots of sun for you! Here at La Roca, we find ourselves in an exciting season and wanted to share with you something that God has put on our hearts.

As you may know, over the past 8 years, we experienced growth in many ways and our ministry facilities limited us in what we could do in part due to lack of space. In mid-2009 we experienced God’s favor as we were able to move from our original church facility in the Zona Norte of Tijuana to rent (with an option to purchase) a much larger facility about 5 blocks away. This new location has proven to be a great blessing, allowing us to expand our ministry in unprecedented ways and is needed for continued growth.

Recently, we sensed God calling us to take a step of faith and pursue the purchase of the church building that we are currently renting. As we’ve prayed we believe God is calling us to take steps of faith to raise a total of $225,000 over three years. Why three years? Let us tell you . . .

1. Our current lease will end in July 2013 and there is NO assurance that the lease will be renewed. If the lease is renewed for another four years, we will have no control what the lease amount will be. So, to spend the next three years raising the funds to purchase the property as the lease comes to an end is a wise move to make.

2. We have invested monies on this property to make it usable and those monies will be lost if we do not remain on the property.

3. It just makes good financial sense. Purchasing and seeing our funds put to use as an investment is good stewardship. Buying, without a doubt, is the best thing we can do!

For us, three years seems like a reasonable period of time to raise the funds. We also believe that the purchase of this building is to be done in faith. God is asking us to believe that He will provide the resources to buy this building without taking out any loans, etc. In order for us to do that, we have come up with a plan to raise the $225,000. We are praying for people, churches and organizations to make one of the following yearly commitments during a 3-year period:

10 commitments at $5,000 = $50,000/year

10 commitments at $1,000 = $10,000/year

10 commitments at $ 500 = $ 5,000/year

10 commitments at $ 250 = $ 2,500/year

25 commitments at $ 100 = $ 2,500/year

50 commitments at $ 50 = $ 2,500/year

100 commitments at $ 25 = $ 2,500/year

YEARLY TOTAL = $75,000/year

3 YEAR TOTAL = $225,000

We would like to invite you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in “faith-giving” toward the purchase of this property.

What does faith-giving mean?

It is making a commitment between you and the Lord to pass on additional funds that He will provide to you toward our efforts of purchasing this building. We are not seeking any funds from your normal income, but will you commit to support our fundraising efforts as the Lord provides above and beyond your normal income? Pray and ask God to see if He is inviting you to be a part of this endeavor.

On our end we have formed a campaign prayer group that will be praying for all of those who make a faith commitment. We will communicate with our faith partners and share with them stories of how God is providing through His people. To ensure the proper stewardship of the resources that we receive, we will form a Board Campaign Committee to oversee our efforts. These members will be chosen from La Roca Board Team (USA) in order to give you peace of mind that the funds will go toward the proper purpose.

We believe that by trusting in God, He will provide from His resources to our partners and use them to pass the gift on to La Roca. We invite you to trust God to use you as a vessel for funding the purchase of the La Roca church building. If you have never made a faith commitment then start today and see what God can do through you! And remember, you only give when He provides above and beyond your normal income. Be prepared for a great blessing that only He can provide.

For your convenience, we have provided a commitment card with a tear off portion; one portion for you to keep and pray with us for La Roca with specific topics for every day of the week and the other portion for you to return to us letting us know how you would like to be involved in this exciting season.

We are so grateful to you for being there for us in this journey. Would you continue to keep us in your prayers as we prepare for this opportunity to encourage others for this great task at hand? Lastly, thanks for standing with us in these uncertain times; we will continue to march forward knowing that God is before us!

With love, Carlos and Rossy Montoya and the La Roca Team
