Let’s Do the Numbers- Trusting through the Silence

My husband loves listening to Alistar Begg, not just because of his Scottish accent but also because of his spiritual knowledge and insights.  An article I recently received quoted him saying, “If you cannot trust God with the physical, how dare you trust Him with the spiritual? Can you trust Him for your soul’s redemption, and yet not rely upon Him for a few lesser mercies? Is God not enough for your need, or is His all-sufficiency too narrow for your wants?”
australian moneyTo maintain this mindset is difficult while raising support, especially when we reach plateaus or don’t see our account growing as quickly as we would like.  The article, If God can Save the World then He can Pay your Wages, speaks directly to this point.  And for me, it is a reality that I wholeheartedly trust and praise God for my salvation but in the same hour question His ability to provide for us.  Please pray for our hearts, that we would trust that God would provide for us, even through the silence.

Last support update we reported that we were at 59.2% of our goal but now we are at 60.1%.  We didn’t meet our April goal of 60% until the first week of May.  But now we have surpassed that mark and are ready to trust God to help us get to 75% by the end of June.  But we do this one month at a time so our May goal is 68%.  $900 in monthly giving will help us reach this goal.  $25 a month makes a difference in our budget and 36 individuals or couples can make this goal a reality.  It’s easy to give by contacting MTW (Mission to the World) or using their online giving site: donations.mtw.org.

Thank you to everyone who has already been giving and advocating for us.  We know that we are part of a larger community who trust the God of the universe and I am encouraged by everyone who is praying for us and already a part of our ministry.  If you want to advocate for us but are unsure of what it is, advocating is as easy as talking about Australia and encouraging others to get involved and learn about our ministry (Why Australia?).

Please keep praying for our support and God’s timing.  We have a lot of things going on right now that need to be covered in prayer.  We trust that as we share more in the future that you will be excited and praise God for what He is doing.  Thank you for helping us get to Australia!
