Seeking partners ASAP

If you have been a reader of our blog, www.aliveinafrica.com for any length of time, you have no doubt seen pictures and heard lots of stories about the pastors in the ACTION Pastors Program. I assume you have also seen the evolution of our teaching centre and all the work we have put into creating a warm place with Zambian pictures and local art work.  A year ago we moved into this great building, right in the middle of the city and convenient walk for all our pastors.  In a span of a month, not only have we lost a tenant who was subletting from us (thus making this place affordable),  we also were notified that the landlord was going to raise the rates immediately. In addition, the timing of this has been very critical because we have to sign a new lease by July. This is significant because if we cannot stay here we need to give them one months notice of vacating the office by June 1st which means we need to either find the additional money so we can commit  to stay in our office for the next year, or find a new place to move to.  We really believe that God has provided this place for us and we just can't fathom moving, at least in the next year.  So, it is with an earnest and urgent plea that I am writing to you today to ask for help.  And I believe that many  We need to raise $700 dollars a month in consistent financial support to be able to keep this location for the next year. We would like partners who could commit to supporting our office needs for one year while we seek God's will for us as a ministry related to this ministry space. It is possible that we could find another ministry that could sublet from us. But, it will take some time, possibly an entire year, to find the right partnership.   In addition, buying a year will help re-evaluate our office space and to see if there would be another spot maybe even better than this place.  Regardless, we need churches and/or individuals to commit to help us for a year so we can sign the lease with confidence knowing that we can stay for the year.  We have received a commitment for $250 a month for a year. So, as of now, we only need $450 a month. If you would like to give a one time gift, we will apply that to the total cost that we need of $8400 dollars.  Could you help? If you do decide to give, could you please let us know because we will need to know if the funds have been secured before we sign a new lease.
