2016 was an amazing year! All together we raised $1,086,600 for the mission of Perception Funding and our Ministry Partners. It has been a blessing to see the Lord work in so many ministries and to see their impact on the kingdom of God increase.
We are excited for what's ahead in the New Year, as there's already a lot on our plate. Including our new Intern, Jarrod Schwartz. Jarrod was a ministry partner that we had sent to Nepal in 2015 and he came to us last month wanting to join our staff. He officially began January 2 but spent some time in the office with us in December; getting year-end letters mailed for ministries, completed our fundraising training, sat in on ministry partner meetings and helped design his internship with us.

Prodeo Youth Center
Every Teen Loved, Valued, and
Equipped for Change Pro Deo Youth Center is a relational organization geared toward teenagers in grades 7th-12th. At its core, Pro Deo is a people group, a family, a home away from home. We provide after-school and week-end programming to help teens grow into productive adults, all the while, enjoying their teen years in a safe and fun environment. We give teens opportunities to set goals while providing the support and accountability they need to be successful. We are building a legacy of excellence in loving teens and empowering them to dream & achieve.
Changing Lives One Bowl At A Time Project Porridge was established after we identified a real need - malnurtrition in children from 0-5 years. With our founders, leaders and health professionals living in Uganda, financial support from people like you, and by the grace of God, we are empowered to pursue our mission of helping mothers and children.
En Gedi: a lush oasis that is blooming near the Dead Sea in the barren Judean desert (Ezekiel 47:10).
Our world is filled with places that are spiritually and physically barren like Judean deserts; places where sin and darkness have choked out the light. Our purpose is to bring the Living Water, Jesus, to spiritually parched people in these deserts of despair; one life, one home, one neighborhood, one city, one state, one country at a time; until the whole world blooms.
Praises & Needs
New beginnings are happening with most of our Ministry Partners. Pray as we're finalizing budgets and putting together fundraising plans for the year. This is an important time to get a few critical tasks accomplished to have a good launch into the New Year.
Pray for Jarrod, our intern. Pray his start with us can be a good experience for all and helpful to our ministry partners.
