“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers.” 1 Thessalonians 1:2 NIV
81 days of prayer, waiting in hope and now Camp Tamborine is secured for the future use of MTCC and associated missions represented here on the mountain. As at settlement (30/11/20) a total of $584,869 had been received, leaving a shortfall of $165,131. The generous and prayer answering offer of an interest free loan from a good friend of the Convention was agreed to by the Mount Tamborine Convention Membership, and allowed the purchase to proceed.
Raising awareness and remaining funds to pay back the loan as soon as possible will continue, with attention now turning towards the recommissioning process.
Sitting idle since February, there is lots to be done in order to ready Camp Tamborine to welcome its first guests, especially the kitchen which has to be approved and licensed by Scenic Rim Council prior to use.
We are working on a plan for epoxy flooring (a generous gift has covered this need), stainless steel open shelving ($800), pantry shelving ($650) and new cabinetry/stainless steel bench (approx. $6,000). The cold room and dishwasher also need a service at $265 each.
Part of the recommissioning requires refurbishing the dining room, meeting room and hallways in the downstairs of each building, which means levelling floor tiles, creating entry/exit points for disabled access and installing commercial grade flooring with a 15 year warranty at $18,500. This will greatly enhance and improve the amenity of both buildings.
Please pray that support will come forward to help with these expenses.
