hold my rope! part 1

This has been updated a few times since I posted to keep up with the most recent developments.

I’ve heard missionary life described as having a rope tied around your waist and jumping off a cliff. You need a good team of people behind you to hold your rope or you are going to fall and it will be painful. Many of you have stepped up to take a piece of that rope in hand already as I have been preparing to leave. You have prayed for me, encouraged me, called me, sent notes, given of your time and money and, in general, been more generous with me than I could ever repay.

As my proverbial jump gets closer, I am trying to get as big a team of rope-holders behind me as possible. In my last few posts, I’ve explained a lot of details about what I will be doing in Kenya (if you haven’t had the chance to watch the video about why I am moving, go to this post and watch it). I wanted to share the opportunity for you to be involved there as well by sending me through a financial partnership. As a financial partner, you are an active part of what God will accomplish through this ministry. The ministry and role of a sender is just a vital as that of go-er. Would you consider joining in this journey with me?

The primary goal that I am working toward now is building a team of partners to help meet my monthly goal of $2,810. I currently have partners who are committed to provide 21% 26% 30% 41% 47% 50%  59%  86% of this amount. Again, it has been an incredible blessing for friends to come alongside me in this way. I have to have 100% of my monthly support committed before I can get on that plane to Kenya.  This is a wonderful start, but there is still much to be done. That’s where you come in!

I am still looking for about 5-10 more financial donors who want to partner with me on a regular basis (monthly, quarterly or yearly) to help meet that monthly financial goal. Would you prayerfully consider being one of those partners? Here is an example of what it would take if 7 people decided to jump in an pick up a piece of the rope.

2 partners at $100/mo.

4 partners at $50/mo.

1 partners at $25/mo.
Would you pray through this list? What would it look like for you to pick up the rope in this way? If you are interested in being a part of my team or if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you feel that this is the way you want to be involved, you can GIVE ONLINE. To find out other ways to give, click here. If you do decide that this is how you want to partner, please contact me. I would love to talk with you more about that.
