It’s still hard to believe. Every time I think about the way you responded to the call to help the new Christians in Africa, I am overjoyed. It reminds me of Paul’s words to the church at Macedonia; who in an hour of need, gave to the cause of the church in Jerusalem to such a degree, that it is obvious Paul was not expecting such a response of heart from them. I know we serve a great God, and I know we have wonderful hearts in this family, so it stands to reason, the incredible is very possible, and now I can say highly probable.
July has been designated “A Zeal for New Zealand.” Again, I am asking you to allow God to speak to your heart, and let’s band together one more time to bless this ministry. Although the challenges in New Zealand differ greatly from those in Africa, there is still a great need in New Zealand, and I am asking all of us to thrust our love and support for Elijah and Kristen and to help fuel the work in New Zealand. As I have mentioned in the past, God doesn’t ask us to give what we don’t have or can’t afford. He only asks us to give that which he has placed in our hands and prepared our hearts to give. So, as God guides your heart, I ask that you listen, trust him, and together let’s pour out a great blessing on our family in New Zealand. I’m eager to watch the Lord work, not only to the benefit of the work in New Zealand, but especially in blessing those who answered the call to glorify God in this special way. To all of you, I proudly say thank you in advance for your abundant generosity.
