Venezuelan Christian Curch in need of a building
Organized by: Roselyn Vasquez
April 03, 2016
Hello friends! my name is Rose. Me and my friend Ruth are from Venezuela, living in the USA right now while we take care of our studies. Ruth is part of a Christian Church in our home country, the church is located in Los Teques city, Miranda State.
This church has been renting in the same building for years but now the owner decided he wants to sell the building, he found somebody who is willing and has the money to buy it RIGHT NOW, this person wants to buy the building to start a liquor store (like we didn't have enough of those already)
Thing is the church has a month to find the funds to buy the building or they will lose it. The name of the church in Spanish is IGLESIA CRISTIANA APOSTÓLICA DE CIUDAD (ICAC) (or in English Christian Apostolic Church of the City (if you know Spanish you could look into their twitter @Iglesia_ICAC or find them on Facebook) They do a LOT of work for the community, specially with kids, they do special events all the time.
I really believe the church staying there is truly beneficial to the community while a lot of negative things could come from opening another liquor store in that area (Liquor stores in Venezuela are associated with destroyed families, violence, laziness, and machismo culture, they look bad and attract crime.) Please help us do something good for this community, for the church that's been there for so long and the people who call this church home!! THANK YOU!!
