We’re still climbing! Only 6 days left to reach the summit of our April 30th faith goal. See “climber man” pictorial updates below for a brief status report and prayer requests. Thank you and please keep pouring on your prayers daily!
Hoorah, we’re almost above the tree line at step 5 – meaning we still need $1100 in monthly commitments to be fully funded. By April 30th this seems crazy impossible. Yet…
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27
Well, you may wonder about this drawing of climber man. What is it? Rock slides. Recently we slid down several steps on the mountain (lost financial support) but praise the Lord – He replaced the decreased giving amounts and even bumped us up a notch to step 5 this week. We thank the Lord for working all things for His good.
When I thought, “My foot slips,”
your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. Psalm 94:18
Please pray specifically for us to be fully funded by Wed, April 30. Only God could scale the remaining 1100 “feet” of “vertical ascent” in such a short time. Our confidence is not in our legs but in Him. He is able to provide “exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or even imagine.”
Pray that we could find 11 people who will commit $100 per month. Or an equivalent number at a different monthly commitment. This could come through new people committing for the first time or through current partners increasing their gifts. Again, only possible through God.
Ask specifically that the Lord would arrange time in people’s schedule simply to talk with us by phone. This has been a challenge all along. Climbing each step of the mountain requires communication with people: People hear our vision for ministry, sense God’s call and then respond and share in our ministry. But without face-to-face conversations – or at least conversations by phone – the first step of communicating never takes place.
If we don’t reach the summit by April 30, then certainly we’ll keep on climbing. The Lord is faithful beyond all comprehension. It is His goal, His mountain, His summit, His climber and His children who help boost the climber to the peak.
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
Thanks for your prayers.
