Relocate and Renovate Update
October 1, 2012
Thank you so much for your patience in this whole process of relocating to downtown Kingsport. While it has been a journey, we still believe that God is working the details out for all involved. We firmly believe that this is a God thing and we are learning to be faithful in “the waiting.”
As of October 1, we found out that Celebrating Freedom (Branch House) has not been able to secure the finances to purchase our property at 441 Horton Hwy in Fall Branch. Their contract deadline was September 30.
I did talk with Roger Morrell, the visionary for Branch House, before he left on his mission trip to Belize. He told me that he felt God really wanted them to be at the location in Fall Branch, but they were struggling with securing the finances. He said he believed he really heard from God and was still trusting.
At this point, they have not asked for an extension on the contract. They have asked us to go ahead and put the property back on the market. As of today, our current theatre property at Fall Branch is for sale.
We have turned some other potential buyers away the last couple of months. We will be contacted them and letting them know that the property is available once again. If you would like to pass the word that the property is up for sale once again, we would appreciate it. The facilities include:
LampLight Theatre: a 10,000 sq.ft. building with additional outdoor concession stands
House/ Office: a 4,500 sq. ft. ranch house (2 full kitchens, 3 full baths, 2 half Baths, 2 dining rooms, 2 living rooms, 2 sunrooms, 6 bedrooms, Studio/den. 2 wash rooms.
A Wardrobe/ Shop: 2,400 sq. ft. Storage/garage/ shop out building (2 levels)
14 acres of land
**The last appraisal was $500,000
It was our hope that Branch House would become a reality in Fall Branch. We would love to see another ministry get the property and continue Kingdom work. If you are interested in knowing more about their vision, please call our office and we will get you in contact with them.
We are still in a purchase contract agreement with Restoration Fellowship Church. Our deadline is October 31. In order for us to purchase their property, we have to sell ours. Please be in prayer over the next couple of weeks as we pray for God’s timing in this situation.
We believe God wants us in downtown Kingsport. We are just waiting for His timing. We do believe that God is working all these circumstances for the good of those who are involved. We are all in agreement that God is up to something great. We are just waiting for his provision and timing.
We will keep you posted as we learn details. Thanks again for your prayers and support. Please pray for Branch House and Restoration Fellowship Church as well.
