163 Days to Go, and God is Good

The day is approaching quickly,  163 days to go seems like a long time, but time has a tendency to fly.  The Lord is so gracious and kind.  Why would we ever doubt Him?  I still remember at our first meeting as a team.  We talked about what it will take to get us to Paraguay, prayer, commitment, humility, and $23,000.00 dollars.  All these things are a challenge to accomplish, but the thing that stuck out in my mind was the financial how in the world would we ever come up with it.  That is a lot of car washes, grass cutting ... and yet here we are with 163 days to go and we are at the 91% mark. 

My problem comes because I look at people and their resources, instead of focusing on God and His resources.  Ever since I have trusted Christ for my salvation He has never let me down.  He has taught me how to give, and when I do it doubting, He continues to surprise me with His gracious provision.  So it is disturbing that I would doubt Him to be anything but generous as we entered into this adventure of following His will.  I am still waiting the day when I can be like Moses and tell the people to stop bring donations because we already have more than we can use (Exodus 36:6).  But go ahead, make my day.

Of course these funds did not just mysteriously appear.  God used His people to provide.  We want to thank all who have faithfully heard His voice and gave generously for this mission.  I know the twelve who actually get to do the front line ministry will be blessed.  But I am also confident that all who were able to contribute financially and helped at our fund raisers will also find Christ's blessings through it all.

It is not too late to be part of the team.  We still need another 9% to get there, and we also covet your prayers.  Don't forget that on Sunday, July 12th we have another fund raiser.  We are having a cook out and silent auction after our morning service.  All are welcome to attend.  Just call or email us for more info.

Thanks and God bless,
Ps. Bill
