Financial Status and Partnership
This is a pivotal month for us. One month to go! You may remember that we are going as fully self-funded missionaries. The message of God’s unconditional love and grace is what we are taking to the people of Scotland. Like so many other places, it is desperately needed. The Bible school we will be opening will pay its own expenses, but not ours.
When missionaries are sent, money is a topic that always comes up. We think that God’s word bears out that those that fund also share in the eternal reward. Without getting to far “out there”, Jesus said, "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you." -- Luke 6:38
We now have a car waiting on us in the UK! Thanks to a gift of a student moving from the UK to Colorado our initial transportation there is now covered. It is an automatic (rare in the United Kingdom compared to stick shift vehicles), which is exactly what Lisa was praying for! God’s goodness is covering every aspect of our adventure.
Here’s the scoop: About half of the $25,000 to move (for the visas, flights, rent deposits, furniture, etc..) and a little less than half of the monthly support need of $5,000 is covered. We are believing God for more monthly partners. Someone just told us yesterday afternoon they are going to start a monthly partnership. That blessed Lisa so much. Here is why: the monthly partners stabilize the budget and give us a sense of security. Knowing that friends support us is a big deal.
Since our careers have been computers and conferences, we aren’t quite sure how to “ask”, so this is it. Would you prayerfully consider becoming a monthly partner with us? We truly believe that God will bless you even more!
