Give us this day our daily bread

Those that know me know that I work with Cru and that a part of that assignment includes that I have to raise the funds necessary to participate with this mission. That includes my salary, benefits and ministry expenses. Our president does the same as well as looks for funds for our global expenses and operations and a friend shared this video with me of him talking about some of this experience. I was encouraged by it and many of you ask me what raising support is like, so I thought this video would give you a peak at what it can be like. Is is just 3:08 minutes long. Enjoy.

I want to share how it feels when you extend your ministry through, at least, me. Most everyone reading this post knows that, for us to work full-time with Cru, we need friends and funds to support our lives and mission. Our friends--we also call them partners because they are extending their ministry through ours--encourage us emotionally through their friendship. Spiritually, their prayers embrace us, moving God in concert with His plans to expand His kingdom in our lives and through our lives. They financially give to provide our salary, benefits, and ministry expenses. When that all comes together, what I feel is focus and energy. I want to give my best and feel free to focus on helping to fulfill the Great Commission. I was reminded of that as new friends joined us this week, and all week I have felt focused and energized.
