Watch what God will do… (part 1)

by bzephyr

2014-10-09 09.58.44cropHDR800The numbers are in, and our financial support for the 12 months of 2014 was only 66% of our approved ministry budget. It has never been that low. We have to admit, that’s a bit scary for us.

We have had drops in financial support before, but usually nothing that doesn’t come back up to 100% within a 12 month period. What happened? Some of our partners have gone on to be with the Lord, and some are facing financial hardship. The cost of living in PNG increased by an estimated 25% during our last term. We also had additional expenses that were not part of our budget (like several urgent medical trips to Australia over the last few years that ate up the funds we were saving to return home on furlough this year). Now we are only 5 months out from returning to PNG and with additional one-time financial needs for that return to the field.

So we post this blog entry in order to remember where we are starting. We trust that even as the Lord has called us to serve him in Papua New Guinea, he will also provide the resources in order to do so. We’ll post here again to celebrate the ways that God provides. Please join us in praying to our great God and Savior Jesus. He will receive all the praise.
