It's the time of the school year where teachers have to commit to returning for the next school year, signing a "Letter of Intent." This year, I could not sign that letter in good conscience. In my heart, I believe that if I sign the letter, I am giving my word that I would teach again here next year. It also states that I do not trust the Lord to provide for full funding for me to move to Peru in July. Both of those things kept me from signing the Letter of Intent. When I indicated that I could not sign it, that I would be resigning at the end of the school year, the office manager handed me the Resignation Form to complete.
This just got VERY REAL!!
Yes, it's a step of faith. Yes, it's a bit scary. But, the Lord has said, "GO!"
Taking a leap of faith!
Several additional one-time gifts have come in. Every one-time gift is appreciated! Once I am in Peru, I will need to purchase items for my apartment (including a refrigerator, stove, bed, etc.). These one-time gifts will allow me to purchase some of these items.
Another friend has stated that she wants to be a monthly supporter! I'm praising the Lord that, with her $20/month promise, I'm now at 19.2% of the needed monthly support! Yes, that's still 80.8% away from what is needed, but the Lord is in control of it all.
And, at least one more friend is praying about becoming a monthly supporter! The Lord WILL provide.
Would you pray about being a monthly supporter?
If every person that reads this newsletter would commit to $10/month, I would have my full support in no time!
Do you know someone else who may want to be a monthly supporter?
"And He said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.'"
The Lord has opened the door for me to share about hrt4Peru with 3 different groups in the coming 3 weeks! I am so excited to share the ministry with others!
Would you pray with me that the Lord would raise up supporters from these speaking opportunities?
Would your Small Group, Church, or group of friends be interested in having me speak (live or via Skype)?
Another way that I am raising funds is by selling these t-shirts. The money from these shirts will pay for my trip to Ayacucho (another city in Peru), the mission trip that the San Ramón church is taking at the end of July, just after I get there. Crew shirts size S-XL are $20 (plus shipping), 2XL-3XL are $22 (plus shipping). V-neck shirts are $2 more. Long sleeve shirts are also available for $30 and $32.
If you're interested, please let me know!
