NEW CHURCH BUILDING
God has a big plan for our humble community in Roatan, and we at Alpha Community Church, are excited to be part of it. As the leader of our church, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for what we have been able to accomplish thus far, through the help of so many friends and family, and for the clarity that Jesus has given us. Five years ago, I received a message from our lord and savior, to build a church to accommodate people in the community. At that time, we had no land, no money, and no blueprint. Today we have land, received generous donations, and we started a building.
The purpose of my letter today, is to ask for your support as we approach the completion of the new Alpha Community Church in Roatan. ACC is not just a church; it is slowly developing into a spiritual haven for those who are seeking the lord. We began service at the new building three weeks ago. Our congregation has grown so much that the old building has become too small for Sunday service. There is no turning back now, we will continue to walk in faith.
The completion of this project is divided in the following phases:
Phase 1 – Stage, windows behind stage, chairs, electricity, and ceiling
Phase 2 – Floors, remaining windows, doors, bathroom, and septic tank
Phase 3 – Paint, furnish, offices, A/C, and parking lot
Since the rain season is approaching, the goal date for the completion of phase one is December 1, 2020. During torrential rains, the noise from the zinc roof is very loud. However, with a ceiling, the noise will be kept to a minimum. Also, since the windows will be closed during heavy rains, we will need electricity to turn on the A/C and fans.
I will be travelling to the United States during the first week of October. Part of my purpose for this trip is to purchase as many items as we can to complete phase one. Most of the material and furniture in Honduras are four times more expensive than in the U.S. Due to the extreme price difference and the opportunity to ship a container from the U.S. to Roatan, duty free, we will purchase as much material as we can from the United States. The container will cost $1,985 to ship from Miami to Roatan.
The budget is 102,811$ for phases 1-3, pictures of the progress of the new construction, and the design of the new Alpha Community Church building.

Please note that this building will not only be used a church but also as a hurricane shelter, community gathering, weddings, and so much more.
