Matching Donations Request for
New Retreat Center Building

February, 2008

Dear Brother or Sister in Christ:

We are in the midst of a huge building project at the Paul Jansen Discipleship Retreat Center that has been stalled since Fr. Al died in 2002. The project includes a chapel and 40 dorm rooms. We have been praying that this project will be completed by October 13, 2008, the sixth anniversary of Fr. Al's death.

Fr. Al desired the Paul Jansen Discipleship Center to be the primary campus of Guadalupe Bible College (GBC) which he also established. The retreats given at the Center are part of the GBC curriculum, along with the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Church and Papal documents.

Now is the time to move ahead with this project in order to prepare for the flood of souls the Lord will be sending to us to disciple and, in turn, be sent forth to the nations. The Holy Spirit has been telling us to get ready and be prepared. Now we must act. The project is well over half finished, but it will probably take almost a million dollars to complete it if we have to pay for all the labor and materials. Currently we have close to $100,000 in our building fund and we need approximately another $900,000.

Fr. Al always said "let your needs be known and trust in the Lord to meet those needs." Recently, the directors were pleased to accept a $20,000 donation from an individual (who wishes to remain anonymous) earmarked for the final construction of the Paul Jansen Discipleship Center. Specifically this money and matching funds collected will be used to complete the heating and ventilation systems of the building, a $160,000 expense. Is the Lord asking you to help us meet this expense with a matching donation?

This anonymous donor told the directors that even more money could be available if they could raise matching donations. We trust that God will provide! We need your prayers, your gifts, and your treasure as the Lord leads you!

Jesus we trust in you!
