As is the case for all non-profits, January is a busy month for us as we get contribution receipts to supporters and W2's to employees. Doing this gives us the opportunity to really take a close look at our impact on our Ministry Partners, and then to set goals for the new year. Here are some exciting numbers we've gathered during this time:
12 ministries are fully funded through our Sending Initiative
2 have more than doubled their support in the past two years, from the $60,000 range to over $135,000
6 are sustainable and growing
2 are new Ministry Partners that are just getting started
2 have a lot of work to do and are beginning to learn what it takes to succeed
$283,844 was raised on our online giving platform, give transform, in 2014
It's such a blessing to be a part of ministries that are able to do what God has called them to do in a way that transforms lives day after day. Nothing is more fulfilling then seeing a ministry able to meet the tangible and spiritual needs of those they serve. Checkout our Ministry Partners on our website!
Needs & Praises
Growing pains with technology. We are at a point in our growth that this is becoming costly, both in time spent and finances. Pray for resources and problem solving skills.
Our non-cash store (stuff people have donated) is moving to a bigger and more easily accessible location. Pray for volunteers to help get the new space set up, and for items to be donated to the space. If you would like to help us in this area, please contact us!
We are working to plan one or two mission trips in 2015. One to Costa Rica and another to Peru. Pray for the Lord guidance as there are a lot of details that need to come together in order for these trips to take place.
