Stepping Out in Faith:
LARTC Construction Update

Rod and Sherry Boyd

LARTC"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what
is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV

For those that have followed our missionary ministry, you know that there are times when it's been necessary to "step out in faith."  Once again, we find ourselves stepping out in faith, far beyond our comfort zone, convinced that we are following the Spirit's direction and with full confidence that our God will meet us there.  The great battles, the battles that matter for eternity, are fought in the "unseen" areas of our lives. 

As we contend for the construction and development of the Latin America Resource and Training Center, we know that battles fought and won in the "unseen" areas will impact the long-term effectiveness of the ministry to equip leadership, train teachers and develop resources that are destined to shape the next generation of harvest workers.  We also know that we are not alone.  God is already there.  But also, He has so many of you having joined us, together stepping out in faith.  Thank you!

To give you perspective on what's happened in the last year, please compare this two photos taken from approximately the same spot and perspective one year apart:

On this Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, we ask you to join us once again.  Fittingly, our latest "stepping out" was a purchase of floor tile made last Saturday during a Black Weekend sale.  We purchased 2,250 tiles at $6.00 for each 2x2 sq ft tile.  Would you step out in faith with us and purchase 10, 20 or 50 floor tiles?  Please visit the A/G secure giving page for our ministry and select Class 60 and indicate LARTC Project 14295 in the comment field.  Thank you!

New $25,000 Matching Challenge!  Because of the miraculous and timely response of the $50,000 Matching Challenge that began in July, we have been approved for an additional $25,000 Matching Offering for January through March of 2017.  Please join us in believing for this incredible opportunity!  We believe that these additional funds will allow us to finish Phase One of LARTC construction and move into the facility in January!


We're happy to report the following construction progress:

  • The final bathroom walls that contain plumbing are up! 

  • All stucco work will be completed before December 15th. 

  • Almost one half of the electrical wire as been pulled.

  • Materials for the septic tank and system have been purchased and work has begun.

  • All drop ceiling materials have been purchased and work will be completed by the end of December.
