The Other Shoe Drops
If you read
our last news letter you know that we went to Nicaragua intent on
filling our 2012 calendar, buying a reliable car and securing a rented
house to facilitate our increasing work in Nicaragua. I am happy
and excited to report that the Lord went before us and we were able to
accomplish all of those objectives.
Now we can
get around, have a place for our supplies and materials and a place to
put our heads on our own pillows at night. Of course, all of this
comes with a price tag. This is where the "other shoe
drops". But don't stop reading.
If you have
followed our ministry, you also know that very rarely do we make a
direct plea for donations on our own behalf. Sure, we've raised
lots of cash for medicine, food and supplies for children, cars for
Nicaraguan pastors, computers and sound systems for Nicaraguan
churches, and puppets and a sound system for our children's
program. So here is the "other shoe", which is actually
been offered a significant amount ($5,000) in matching funds to help us
pay a portion of the car and the housing expenses. That means
when you donate $100 (or any amount), that will be matched, effectively
doubling your donation to $200.
catch - we will not receive the full amount unless that much is
Some of you
have already made a donation towards these items. Those funds
will be matched. For everyone else, won't you consider this as
your opportunity to extend your personal ministry by joining with
us in meeting the need we have.
