Camarin Caloocan Area-July 2017

1From the time we started our ministry at Robes I, Camarin, finding a right venue/place to conduct our ministries has been our great dilemma. We experienced problems especially during rainy season, and when the previous venue is not available. We prayed hard until the Lord finally opened a door of opportunity for us to enter.
A residential unit owned by Mrs. Ladina Casuga is available for acquisition. The unit has approximately 45 to 50 square meters floor area with about 30 square meters backyard, comfort room, water and electricity connection. We believe that this is the best place to be used as our church building for it will meet the goals and objectives of our strategic plan. After we discussed this with our partner, the team decided to purchase this property. We closed our negotiation with the owner amounting to One Hundred Fifty Thousand pesos only (Php 150,000.00). Target to purchase the property within this July.
