A blessed Easter to you and your families! And a praise report to you on project Nehemiah!
With God’s provision, your support and prayers, on April 18, 2019, Pui Tak Christian School have closed on the property located on 3118-3140 S. Canal Street, Chicago, IL 60616 with the purchasing price of $3.53 million!
We were able to close on the deal with over $2.4 million in donations, $300,000 bank loan and $850,000 in personal and organizational loans. The plan is to pay back the loans as quickly as possible before entering into the final phase of Project Nehemiah. In witnessing how God worked among people and gathered the resources together in the last 14 months, we have reasons to believe He is still at work.
The school has budgeted 24 months from the closing of the property to prepare for the final phase of Project Nehemiah, that includes obtaining all the necessary permits, finishing architectural design and drawings, and fundraising for the construction of the school facility.
There is much to be thankful for during this Easter season, I thank you for your partnership in this endeavor, God has blessed the school through you.
Besides counting on your steadfast prayers, I also need your ideas and referrals. There are much to be done before the actual construction begins, please make referrals if you think there are certain people I should meet and please do not hold back your creative ideas.
Thank you and may Christ’s resurrected power reflects in you!
In His Grace,
靠著神的供應，以及您的支持與禱告，2019年4月18日，培德基督教學校以353萬美元成交了位於穚港區南運河街 3118-3140 號的房產！
交易得以完成是靠著超過 240 萬美元的捐款，30 萬美元的銀行貸款和 85 萬美元的個人及機構貸款。我們計劃在進入「尼希米計劃」最後階段以前，以最快的速度償還貸款。在過去的十四個月裡，我們見證了上帝如何叫人凡事互相效力，在人與人之間動工，把資源聚集在一起，我們有理由相信神依然在做工。
學校已預算出二十四個月的時間用來作「尼希米計劃」最後階段的預備工作; 其中包括獲取所有必需的許可證、完成建築設計和圖紙, 以及為學校的設施建築籌款等等。
