What would we use this facility for?
1. Bible College
Our vision for Puerto Rico is to start Bible-believing Independent Baptist Churches all throughout the island. Our plan to accomplish that goal involves training men for the ministry (2 Timothy 2:2). With this resource we would have a place with which to house the staff and students and their families.
2. Groups on Short Term Mission Trips
We get TONS of requests from Bible-believing churches in the U.S. asking if they can bring youth groups, mission groups, work groups, etc to our island and participate in our ministry for a brief period of time (usually from a week to 2 or 3 weeks, sometimes longer) and with other missionaries that we network with here on the island. With this hotel we can comfortably lodge such groups. Rather than pay an expensive secular hotel or vacation home these groups can invest their funds into a ministry of like faith, at a MUCH reduced price than what they would pay others, and in so doing be a big help in maintaining and developing this place into what we envision it for the ministry and the glory of God.
3. Bible and Gospel Literature storage
Victory Baptist Press of Milton, FL is currently preparing to print for us 25,000 whole Bibles for free distribution here in the Carribbean. We are being tasked with this project. Where can we store these Bibles? This facility contains a large storage area that we can use to store many boxes of Bibles, tracts, books, Gospel literature, and many other resources for the ministry.
4. Other Activities
Youth camps, Bible conferences, Revival meetings, Camp Meetings, Preachers passing through needing a place to stay and relax, etc, etc. The sky is the limit with this place. There is so much potential for what we can accomplish for the glory of God, the training of men, the establishment of churches, and the salvation of sinners with this facility.
