On Sunday, I gave our very first ministry update. At that point, we were at 2.53% funded after exactly one week of fundraising. We were happy with that! One thing that I am learning about being in ministry is that we need to trust in God’s provision and in His timing. Also, something His Spirit is ingraining in my soul is that everything that comes into my life is for His Glory and my good. If something doesn’t work out exactly like we think it should, we can still trust Him and He is still praiseworthy.
Romans 8:28 (ESV) says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
We have a good God that delights in giving His children good gifts. His gift to us is that today we stand at 5.7% funded. Our mini-goal was exceeded! We also received a generous one-time gift. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you for those that are following us and encouraging us in ANY way, and special thanks to those that have joined our team by giving financially! Your money cannot go toward a better cause than investing in people…in this case… the “least of these” in the Dominican Republic.
“And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40 ESV
