Work and Play
We worked hard last week calling, emailing, writing, and talking with a lot of people and churches about our new ministry. We scheduled appointments, went to meetings, and asked for referrals. By the week's end, we logged nearly fifty hours of "work" and we definitely need a nap! I never imagined this could be such hard work! It takes a lot out of you keeping good records and meeting with people. We got away yesterday though and drove out to the beach and went for a l o n g stroll through the sand. It was nice not to think about raising money and keeping track of everything!
Just an update on "How Goes It" We're currently just under 10% of our monthly goal and have received several pledges to help cover our outgoing expenses. We've been encouraged by God's faithfulness and provision so far and know that our God will supply everything we need to accomplish this work. To stay on target, we need to be at 18% by September 15--that's 19 individuals at $25/month, or 10 individuals at $50/month. Or we could have a church support us for $480/month! That would work too! We are looking forward to seeing how God is going to meet our needs.
We have a lot of phone calls to make this week, not so many meetings yet.
