I have made two trips to Santiago Chile to stay with Jason and Lori Holt at their home in the Maipú region of Santiago.  They are church planting missionaries that are utilizing a strong mission church and Bible college to train men for the ministry.   They use a combination of course work and hands on training to prepare the men for the ministry.  The second stage of the work involves discipleship and the formation of a church congregation in a strategic portion of the city.   MJVI is actively supporting the effort to purchase church land in growing areas knowing that men will be trained and congregations formed in the future.  Why is this good strategy?

It is proactive:  A ministry that plans ahead to this level is expecting growth and is planning for it

 It’s ahead of the market:  As a community or area of a city grows and improves its property values go up.  Raising funds ahead of the specific need and buying property before its price escalates is leverage

Its buying power:  If cash is king then we should run with kings and not with debt.  A cash buyer is powerful and usually gets a better deal.

It attracts supporters:  I support plans that make sense and most of the business and career people I work around do the same

 The land in Chile project is found under JV Opportunities.  Support the fund then go visit the work.
