So far this year, Visionland has seen some large steps forward in it’s development. The women’s ministry has finished its general construction on the MERCY Center and will open soon to expand their effectiveness and reach. This exciting building project was led and completed by one of our talented church members, Mario Martinez. Chad Justice has also been working closely with Mario as our architect with on our next big building project, our hosting villa. The plans will soon be finalized so construction can begin. This facility will be a blessing to many ministries in a practical way and its revenue will provide necessary funds to continue our development on Visionland.
On the other side of Visionland, we have been able to make some important initial steps this year. Marco Uribe, director of our baseball ministry has been working on laying out our first baseball field on the property. Although we have limited funds to invest in the field, we are committed to making progress. Our baseball league is already using the field for practice. A key element we have been missing in being able to develop the field is water. Through the help of a generous donation, we were able to install a well to pump water to supply water to the field. This well will also provide water for us to beautify and maintain the entrance to Visionland
