April provided some needed time of catching up from our exciting first quarter of the year. We had over $200,000 come in just for our Ministry Partners that are a part of our Sending Initiative. We began our Sending Initiative in 2011 due to the fact that so many of our overseas Ministry Partners were losing 10-40% of their money because of foreign taxes, bank charges, and administrative fees. As of now we are currently funding 10 ministries from around the world and we’re able to save them thousands of dollars every month.
We met Nathan through our Ministry Partners serving at the Roca Blanca mission base in Oaxaca, Mexico. Nathan has been at Roca Blanca as a missionary and a Spanish language student. For the summer we will be partnering with Nathan as he serves with a church in Mexico called Convencia Cristiana de Oaxaca. He'll be working alongside the youth pastor and congregation to help launch a needed orphanage in the region. Learn more about Nathan...
For the past three years our office has been above an antique store on Main Street in Belton, MO. In order to adapt to our growing ministry we are planning some remodeling - adding a much needed window, along with some space to display and sell non-cash donations. Please pray for the Lord to give us wisdom, safety, and materials for the remodel work. Needs include: windows, framing materials, paint, ventilation materials.
