Ministry Support: God guides and provides…
Ministry support has always been a challenging concept for us. Do we ask for financial support or do we keep quiet and let God speak our needs to the hearts of others? Are we not trusting in God if we let others know what our needs are? Are we robbing others of God’s blessings by not declaring our needs to them? Is there a middle ground?
After careful prayer:
We don’t want to offend our brothers and sisters, neither do we want to offend our Lord, who has promised to provide for all of our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Out of this dilemma, and after much prayer and consideration, we have decided to make our needs known in this way, again after careful pray.
First of all we ask that you pray:
We make our praises and prayers always available in our eNews. Sign up and stay in contact!
Please pray that God would guide and direct us as we serve Him here.
Pray that He would guide and direct you as you desire to partner with us.
Then, we have a new section on our website called “Praying For” (on the Support Information menu) that will inform you of the personal and financial needs we have and will let you know when the needs have been met.
Just as you are praying for us, we are praying for you our ministry team. If you have something you would like us to pray with you about, please use our contact form and we will add you to our prayer list. Be sure and let us know how our prayers are being answered!
We can keep in touch through our Newsletter, Emails and Skype. Let’s keep in touch!
