He’s so cute and squishy, it kills me 🙂 I just swoon all over my little guy!
We are missionaries supported by churches and people. In recent months, God’s been making it clear that we need to raise more support, and He’s been doing little things to guide me in how to do this.
First, I knew I needed a few good pray-ers. So, I have a small group of ladies praying for us for the next 2 years.
Next, I started thinking about those who already are supporting us, and I realized that I wanted to feel more connected to and dependent upon them. So I started sending out short weekly updates to them. The churches that support us get our newsletters (with photos) that I send out about every 3 months. (Monthly is my ideal, but it is too much for me right now!)
Next, God worked in my heart, clearing away cynical and resentful thoughts about the current deputation system that independent missionaries go through. I realized this was a barrier for me for receiving God’s love and blessings through His people. So, while the current deputation system is very expensive, sales-ish, and generally clunky, no system is perfect and God will meet me in the system I am in (whew!) 🙂
Raising support is a job that only God can do, and it has been encouraging watching Him lead the process.
The new funds we need to raise now is about half ministry and half living expenses. If you have specific questions, please ask me. We are most in need of regular, monthly support.
For those of you reading this blog, I have a request. Please pray at least once for us that God will supply our needs in increasing our monthly support.
I, and others, are praying that God will guide those He wants to support us. Please consider supporting us. If a lifetime is too unboundaried a commitment for you to make, maybe you would like to support us for a year or two. We have done that for other missionaries who asked us to support them for a year.
Monthly checks, automatic withdrawal from your bank, paypal; we are flexible and living in the e-century . . . please let us know what is easiest for you. When I have your email, you’ll be getting regular small updates from us about what the Lord is doing here. You can contact us on FaceBook or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission agency is TITUS Internataional: 1515 McBrien Rd, Chattanooga, TN 37412.
The ministry here with addicts reaches a lot of lives. Addictions like smoking, alcohol, and drugs touch almost every life in Ukraine in some way or another. In our rehab center men are coming to the Lord, being discipled, and becoming leaders. They are evangelizing others. It’s a ripe field here.
Servants of the church . . . fellowship in the gospel. . . . would you like to join our community of love and harvest with us?
