Since RGM/AFI relocated to Oklahoma from Georgia, by direction of the Lord Jesus Christ in 2006, we have leased and rented offices and buildings. For about three years, I kept having a leading to build our own facilities. One of my board members talked with me about this over the years also. He is a good businessman, and it didn’t make sense to him, financially, for RGM/AFI to keep up someone else's property and not our own. Of course, he was kind about it, but just wanted what was best for God and the ministry. Can you imagine how much money we have paid in lease and rent for almost eleven years now? No, don’t imagine.
While seeking the Lord, in December 2016, the Spirit of God said to me, “Rise up and build!” Faith dropped into my spirit. Faith comes by hearing and I got it! I researched the cost, through a building consultant, and found out what it would take to build. The consultant did all the research and got quotes and bids from contractors and we haven’t paid him a dime yet, but we will tomorrow. The RGM board met, with all the financial figures, and discussed every thing it would take to complete the project. We voted and agreed to build and God showed up and is still showing up.
RGM/AFI received the largest offering, in one sum, that we have ever received, before we could get out of our meeting in Florida! My God! I have to stop, shout and praise God!!! This was a supernatural start on the building project, but it will take more to finish it.
We Are Constructing A 7,200 Square Foot Building For His Glory
It is a hangar/office/media production facility/multipurpose/storage building at the Claremore Regional Airport. It is twenty miles east of Tulsa International Airport. We considered going off airport, but it would cost about ten times more to build because of having to provide all the infrastructure to raw land. All those things are already available at Claremore. The property was also very, very inexpensive because the city wants to encourage economic development in the area. It helps them to help us by lowering the cost of the land and the infrastructure to build, which they provide! In fact, the airport manger told me that RGM was the talk of the town and CIEDA (Claremore Industrial & Economic Development Authority) and we are the first and only ministry to build like this. It is hard for them to believe that God has that much money. Let me shout again! NOW, I am bragging on God and you because I need your HELP to finish the miracle that God has started.
GIDEON'S ARMY GIVERS
I invite you to become one of “Gideon’s Army Givers” to get in on this miracle building project. I received this from the Lord, while in prayer and meditation about completing the multipurpose building. He spoke to me about Gideon’s Army and how the Lord accomplished great things through them.
And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. And the Lord said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place. (Judges 7:6-7)
**Notice, God chose the three hundred, not Gideon. God is choosing you, not me. I also want to point out that the Lord only chose those who lapped the water from their hand when they knelt down to drink. God didn’t choose those who put their face down to the water to drink, which obscured their sight. He chose those who were vigilant and observant to watch for the enemy. They knelt by the water, scooped it up with their hand, and watched while they lapped. What does it take to become one of Gideon’s Army Givers you may ask.
Our financial goal is to obtain, by faith, $165,000.00 more to help complete the project. $165,000.00 divided by 300 is only $550.00. So a simple $550.00 donation makes you a Gideon’s Army Giver. Each giver will receive an honorary certificate from RGM as a giver and each person will be placed on our “Wall of Remembrance” inside the multipurpose building, so we will never forget those who sowed to build the Kingdom of God through RGM/AFI. Of course, we encourage you to sow any amount over that $550.00. We have already had those who have sown as a Gideon’s Army Giver and those who have pledged to sow and become one. NOTE: The building will be completed in 3 - 4 months, weather permitting. Other things will be completed later, but we should occupy it by then. Construction started the week of January 30, 2017.
** This means we have to act now so every contractor is paid in full and on time as we build. We will also be needing some skilled workers to volunteer to help us finish some things inside. If you have no construction skills, but are willing to help, we need you too! Contact us if you would like to volunteer.
