A home to call our own

Originally posted April 5, 2012

It’s official! We signed on the dotted line and finger-printed the public deed, meaning the building we have been renting downtown is now property of Breaking Chains. The official reading of the deed and signing of the documents took place on Tuesday, March 20th and all of the official paperwork and copies were turned over to Breaking Chains the following week.

It has been a long and crazy road to get to this point – one marked by serious fear and questioning, and then overwhelming confirmation from God. We know that the purchase of property means that the hard work has only just begun, and we have no illusions of a clean and perfect road ahead. But through faith in God, we are ready to do the work and feel so blessed to have the support of so many standing alongside us.

The next step for our building is replacing the roof. Most of the funds have been secured for this project, but we are still seeking donations to cover the unexpected costs which will undoubtedly arise. To make a donation, please follow the steps on the “donate” link of this page.

Thank you to everyone who has made this giant leap possible. We thank God for each and every one of you and look forward to sharing more with you in the future! Thank you to our board of supportive Hondurans, our incredible U.S. board of directors, and all of those who continually lift us up through friendship, encouragement and prayer. Come and see us sometime soon!
