I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.
Psalm 77:11-12 (ESV)
How thankful we are to God for His providence and for your generous support for TBL! In May 2017, we had to search for a new home, unsure whether our 30-year ministry could continue. We were fortunate that Springvale Church welcomed us in. We were unsure of where to find the additional funds needed to operate, and we reached out to you for help. And you responded with generosity.
Today, we want to share another update with you. This summer we will be moving to Light on the Hill Community Church in Richmond Hill. With more room and a longer lease, this space at Yonge Street and Stouffville Road allows us to focus on building our ministry in the long term to the visually impaired and print disabled.
Why is this such an important step? We remind ourselves that those in the Body of Christ who are “least” in the Kingdom of God are the greatest (Luke 9:48)! Around the world, our brothers and sisters who have difficulty reading God’s words of life must not be neglected. We need your encouragement to carry us on this important journey!
As Abram obeyed God and journeyed from Ur to Haran to Canaan, he held on to the promise of the Promised Land and learned to be faithful even though he did not know where he was going (Hebrews 11:8). With such a great calling before us, we must remember God’s faithfulness to us in the past, and learn to trust that He has sovereign plans for us.
How can you help?
First, we ask that you join us in prayers. Please pray with thanksgiving for what God and Springvale had done for us in the past, that the move will be smooth, that we can settle in quickly so as not to hinder our ministry.
Second, we have financial needs for this relocation. The cost for the move is estimated to be around $35,000 and it includes moving costs, renovations, two new booths, and IT setup.
As we had reached out to the community to partner with us on our move two years ago, we are asking again for your support. As we look upon God’s faithfulness, we are confident that he will act again as before for His glory.
