JESUS… I’M IN.
Often Jesus calls Pleasant Valley Church to respond to needs here and around the world, and through His efforts and your generous obedience, amazing things happen. Throughout the month of July, Jesus challenged each of us to continue our conversation with Him and consider responding generously in 3 specific areas.: Our House, Their House and God’s House. 56 people responded!
Our House (funds towards the PV building additions that were completed in 2016): $11,000/mo for the next 12 months.
Their House (building a school house in Mozambique): $200,000.
Our House: One time pledges of $36,675 plus $2,350/mo. The remaining dollars for monthly payments have been put into next year's budget.
Their House: Total in so far (since the beginning): $74,061. Pledged to come in before Christmas: $33,350. We are over half way!
Although the response season has concluded, you may give to these funds at anytime, just be sure to designate Project: Mozambique, Irresistible or General giving on your check or when giving online. Pleasant Valley’s auto giving is also available.

“…Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My House. Test Me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” - Malachi 3:10
God’s House is the body of believers we call home. No matter where that may be, Scripture paints a clear picture of people joyfully giving regularly of their time and resources. He gave everything and asks us to make a regular, eternal investment into His House through our tithe. Please prayerfully consider this as your first priority whether it is PV or the church you call home.
Our House is this beautiful and sacred space at 1363 Homer Road in Winona, MN. Pleasant Valley Church is over 100 years old! The current location was built in 1970 and has seen many additions over the years. In 2016, our most recent updates and additions were completed. Many pledged sacrificially to the project. We are patiently trusting the Lord with the outstanding pledged dollars while we make monthly payments. A lot happens in this place every week as the Word and Person of Jesus Christ is lifted high. Please prayerfully consider giving above and beyond your tithe to help meet this need over the next 12 months.
Their House is our commitment to help Sybil Baloyi expand her Christian school in Mozambique. Currently serving through 7th grade, the additional building will provide six new classrooms, height to escape the seasonal flood waters, and the privilege of welcoming grades 8, 9, and 10. We believe that PV is a place of great faith as we take on the more difficult tasks of His Kingdom. Building this school is an eternal investment into the lives of the children of Chokwe, Mozambique. We believe Jesus has asked us if we can build this school for Him. Please prayerfully consider giving above and beyond your tithe to meet this need by Christmas!
A portion of the funds raised will also go to Pastor Lucky Minsi and his wife Sonnet to support their ministry of providing housing and discipleship for students from the rural villages by building a guest house. The ministry that they do allows students in rural areas to continue their education through high school and hear the good news of Jesus Christ through their discipleship.
