A few weeks ago, we asked you to consider joining our team of financial supporters. Remember that?
Well, it just dawned on me that I have been so busy with the end of the school year that I haven’t told you what happened.
We didn’t reach the goal of $500 in monthly support, but some of you did respond, and we received pledges for $100 more per month. We appreciate those of you who joined our team of financial supporters.
We also received an anonymous donation of $1200. Whoever that was, we thank you for your gift to the ministry.
Raising support for ministry is always a step of faith. We thank God that we have such a good team. If you forgot about it, you can still get on board and be part of what God is doing in Latin America.
Our family is supported by the generous donations of a team of individuals and churches. We are blessed to have a good team of faithful financial supporters. The reality is that our monthly support has been the same for the last 6 years (even dropping a little), before the arrival of our two children and the rise of ministry expenses and cost of living.
God has always provided for our family. We have no doubt that he will continue providing for us.
For the next few weeks we will be asking you to consider supporting our family and ministry, with the goal of raising another $500 in monthly donations by June 10, 2009.
Each day we will be posting new information about our family and ministry, hoping to help you get a better understand of what we do.

We recently received a donation from a friend of ours who had never donated to the ministry before but we know has a heart for missions and has wanted to support us.
I wrote an email thanking the person for the donation, and they told me that it had come from selling M&Ms to everyone at work.
I was surprised to hear that. What a great idea! I love it when people are creative and look for ways to be involved in what God is doing regardless of personal circumstances!
We greatly appreciate every donation that is sent in to help support and extend the ministry in Latin America. We know that the markets are down and the economy is bad. But there are many people who have stood beside us from the beginning and have continued to stand with us and contribute to this ministry. Thanks!
