We are at the two year mark in our campaign and to date we have brought in over 60% of what was pledged. This is great! One item of business that I want to clarify is that we adjusted our pledge by $100,000. The reason for this is due to a large donor moving out of the area and withdrawing their pledge. To leave it in at the original number would have made it feel like the remaining donors we're failing and I didn't want that. The numbers above are truly representative of our current state.
That said, we are in the stretch run. Now more than ever we need you to remain faithful to your pledge. If you've fallen behind, this is a great time to catch up. If you can jump ahead and complete your pledge early, that would also be very much appreciated.
We have basically finalized our annexation into the city of Thornton. All that remains there are some signatures and we have been assured that this process is nearly complete. We are also working diligently with a lender to secure a $4 million dollar loan. As you know, the Meridian group backed out of the deal to purchase 3.1 acres of our land. While this was tough to swallow, we believe wholeheartedly that God knew this was going to happen and that he has a plan for us going forward.
Our hope and prayer now, is that we can secure this loan, break ground this fall and be in our building by next summer. Our preference has always been to keep all 15.21 acres on this property and to dedicate it to the work of the Lord. You continue to play an important role in doing just that. Thank you for your faithfulness and sacrifice.
