Fundraising Update...34 days & 27% Away!

I've said it before and I'll say it again...we are in the middle of a miracle! First of all, the clarity of the call of God on our family has been so strong that it feels like our own miracle of grace in and of itself. We KNOW this is of God like we have never known anything before. He has called us into this season of ministry in Cape Town! But when we looked at the fundraising for this calling, it seemed so daunting and intimidating.

Just for fun, here is the timeline (all in 2010):

February 26th- God called us to leave our familiar land and move to Cape Town, South Africa.

March through August- Easter Mennonite Missions (Our sending organization) Acceptance and Preparation Process including budget development and approval.

May 2nd- We announced our calling to CCF, our home church. Click HERE to read the announcement.

July 15th- We announced the formation of our Missions Support Team. Click HERE to read about that.

August 15th- we officially started fundraising through a mailer to about 400 friends and family. We prayed and trusted God from there...

September- We visited Cape Town on our way back from a trip to China. You can read some reflections from that trip HERE and HERE.

October 17th- Our last day on Staff at CCF as Pastor. We felt so blessed by our sending.

October 24th- We were at 30% of our budget raised. CLICK HERE for that update.

November 15th- We were at 50%. CLICK HERE for that update.

November 30th- We were at 63%. CLICK HERE for that update.

It's unbelievable how much I miss the three of you, and you haven't even offically left town yet.

With just 34 days left-- I challenge 34 people reading this that have not yet pledged to take the plunge and pledge $100 per month.

Even though we are in a recession we are people who have SOOOOOO MUCH! Cut back somewhere for the betterment of those less fortunate.

If you know Noah and Trish, then you KNOW what a difference they will make. If you don't know them, then talk to God about it, cause HE KNOWS what they are about--He is the one sending them.
If you are unable to pledge $100, then find two people who will pledge $50 a month, or 4 people who will pledge $25 a month It's not that difficult, just step a little bit out of your box. Talk to God about it, He will assist you.
Trust me the goodness of your heart will come back to you.
