The Miracle has Happened!

For months we've been praying for miracles...
and it's happened! THANK YOU, JESUS!

I'm going to post what my husband put up on
his blog... he said it well...

"Friends, for several months I’ve been talking about,
praying about and hinting about our next church
plant in midtown Detroit. We have been believing
for God to miraculously provide a place for us.
Well… (drum roll please)…

, that’s right, God is providing us a church right on one
of the main intersections of Detroit’s midtown area. It’s right
across the street from Wayne State University
(over 30,000 students) and also part of the
Woodbridge area of the city.
(Netta's note: This web link says it's a "street car suburb...
it's's IN Detroit. )

Here’s the miracle: It’s being provided to us for FREE
not to use, rent or borrow but to OWN!
God has laid it on a man’s heart to purchase this property for us!
It includes a large auditorium, 12 apartments,
office building, 3-story school, gymnasium, parking lot and more!
We hope to sign papers this week and then close 30 days after that…
our projected opening will be October 10, 2009
yes, THIS FALL – which is the 5 year anniversary of Real Church.

I’ll share more stories and video with you in the near future.

I’ll also share opportunities for you to get involved in helping us

– we’ll need MORE miracles (lots of them)

– equipment, construction, finances

-cleaning/painting, prayer, outreach, etc. – plus, PEOPLE!

Maybe God will lay it upon your heart to join us right here in the city!

Post high school students should check out Xmin Academy

and adults, of any age, are welcome to serve in our

new church community – stay connnected at: Real Church online!



Please share this blog with ANYONE & EVERYONE

– it’s a MIRACLE!

Luv ya & I'm standing with ya!
