Wow! All I can say is that God is so faithful. Why do I say that? I’m glad that you asked. It’s because we have people like yourselves who have committed to pray for the Bello family and Clarity Hollywood. We understand that a strong prayer base is what’s going to make the difference in this church plant.
We have great and exciting news that we want to share with you as our prayer partners. Clarity Hollywood had an outside supporter, who wishes to remain anonymous, pay three months on the lease for the building that we’re going to be launching our church out of. This outside supporter wanted to ensure that the owners of the building didn’t lease it out to another group before we were able to launch. This means that we have a building until the end of April.
We’re going to be launching the church out of the Oasis which is located on Ivar Street one block away from the busy intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. We couldn’t have asked for a better location to launch a church. The directors of the Oasis have agreed to lease us the building, in order hold the facility, at a reduced rate since we will not be launching until late 2013 or the beginning of 2014. They have also agreed to allow me to use the facility for work space, hold meetings, and when ready, have our missional community meet there. This is amazing news!
So how can you continue to pray for us? Again, I’m glad that you asked!
Pray that the Lord would surround us with a strong financial support base to be able to build and sustain the work in Hollywood.
Pray that we would be able to pay the monthly lease on the building to hold our prime location after April.
Pray that the Lord would bring the right people to be apart of our initial launch team. We’re asking that He would bring 25-30 people to be apart of Clarity Hollywood’s initial launch team.
Pray for the Bello family, our marriage, and our two beautiful daughters, Brooklyn and Talia.
The Bello’s family thanks you for believing in us and for joining us on this journey through your prayers. We consider you apart of our team.
Alberto and Ashley Bello
