Partnering with Missionary Organizations:
I'm humbled and honored to write this when I know there are more articulate and experienced voices on the subject. I've already begun getting necessary permission to include voices from different missionary organizations to bring more power to the project. I'm grateful for the relationships I have with them to make this new volume possible, especially my relationship with Cru. Ten years ago when I was on staff with Cru, my earliest editions were not welcomed. Today, they're putting sizable trust in me and financing half the cost of my time even though I left staff more than seven years ago. But pray for me that God would inspire every step of the project until it's planned release this summer.
Be part of God's Provisions for our Work:
Thank you for partnering with Kingdom Rice and our work with Cru and other missionary organizations to write this new tool. Regardless if you've ever invested or not, please consider pledging, changing your pledge, or investing a special gift to be part of God's provision for Kingdom Rice. All gifts are tax-deductible and overseen by our treasurer and board. Everything can be done at this website: kingdomrice.wordpress.com/giving
From me, my family, and the Kingdom Rice board to yours (shown from L-R are Kirk Davis (guest), Nate Lee, Sarah Akutagawa, Sarah Papé, and me. Missing are Sid Mofya, Andy Chu), may God continue to meet you this season, and give you memories as with Mary, to treasure & ponder in your heart.
Happy New Year! - Steve
