Raising Missions Support…8 Years Ago

Our family has a birthday tradition where each child, when they turn ten, receives a hope chest handmade by our dad. This hope chest stores memoirs, keepsakes, and items we want to save for when we have homes of our own one day. A couple times a year, I will go through my hope chest, looking through the memories from years ago and also adding new items to the collection. This past week I found a three ringed binder from years ago that I had turned into a biography of our family. It was quite funny to see what my thoughts were about my family at ten years old!  Flipping through it, I found a reference of my first try at support raising for becoming a missionary…which couldn’t have had better timing since that is what I have been working on lately. Reading through the bio on my sisters and I, I was reminded of the childlike faith and trust that we had, and should continue to have, in our “Big Savior”.

Please excuse the bad spelling and grammar. Thankfully, these are not an issue anymore. 🙂

    So precious! We were just talking about childlike faith in class tonight. Kids are so persistent in asking for what they want and need and are so quick to believe that anything is possible. No wonder God loves children! I’ll be praying for God’s blessings on your support raising efforts, and I look forward to sharing with you the things that I have learned about it this past weekend! Don’t forget that the God we are asking for funds to do ministry is the same God who fed thousands of hungry people with just five loaves of bread and two fish. He will provide for His servants!

      Thank you for your prayers and for sharing with us today all that you have learned! Although I have many challenges to overcome, I am excited to begin raising support now that I have an idea/strategy for how to proceed. Thank you also for the reminder of God’s provision. He is an awesome Father and I’m confident that He who began a good work in us will complete it!
