in 2018 a court was built on the purchased land in Santa Cecilia, Colombia. Now the children have a place to play sports while attending the after-school program. Forming Lives Foundation will continue to support the work being done to build the entire recreation center
Mission Trip August 16-23, 2017
The mission team visited Santa Cecilia, Colombia to discover that a construction company donated over 20,000 bricks to help with building the Coliseum the team assisted in using some of the bricks to construct a road in front of the Alliance church. (See pictures in Gallery below).
After much prayer, God has directed the Foundacion FORMAVIDA to develop a new strategy that allows the youth and young adults from the community to have a place where they can use their free time to develop and foster the talents God has given them.
This project will consist of the construction of a multi-purpose space which includes multi-use athletic courts, a daycare center, AND a multi-use covered gym to play basketball, soccer, and volleyball with the idea of adding classrooms and Christian school in the future.
To do this we are proposing the following phases:
1. First Phase: AQUISITION OF THE LAND: a. Buy the land b. Study the topography c. Define plans d. Obtain a construction license
2. Second Phase: FIRST CONSTUCTION: a. Level the land b. Build the foundation c. Build the structure d. Level and build the parking lot e. Build walls to prevent landslides
3. Third Phase: SECOND CONSTRUCTION: a. Walls and columns of center b. Bleachers c. Roof d. Lighting We are looking for partnerships, churches, organizations, schools, families, and individuals who believe that this is possible.
We need people who want to support us in prayer, physically and financially! We appreciate and value your consideration
God bless you!
