Shortly after posting my monthly support at 57% due to the 2012 monthly support budget, I found two additional pledges totally $75/month in new monthly giving, and another $950 in one-time gifts! So, as things now stand, I’ve received:
- 59% of my monthly pledged support
- 87% of my one-time support
In other words, I’ll be fully supported with $1,600 in new monthly pledges and $3,300 in one-time giving. God is working through your prayers and giving, and my overall support is right at two-thirds: thanks!
More importantly though, God is building his kingdom in Ukraine, and his providence in my own life keeps pointing that direction. Financial giving is only one of the tools God is using to build my trust in him and send me to Kiev. At the truthXchange conference last week, and at the L’Abri conference, I met a number of people who offered contacts they have in Kiev, or sources for Ukrainian language and Russian language evangelistic and discipleship tools. One friend recommended I connect with his friend, who I didn’t find a the conference, but ran into two days later in Terminal G of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
