“I really like these dollars… this one even says ‘In God we Trust'”.-Lydia
Well, it’s Missions Monday time. This week, we are bringing our family to the forefront. Some people are not aware that even though we live in the States, we are still full-time missionaries. The bulk of our income has been from support from others and the occasional miracle from above. As for the rest, Tad usually does adjunct work for ERAU, but there are no classes available until April. We feel that this is a good thing, as when he teaches an outside class it takes time away from the ministry. It is also a hard thing, because we depend on that income. We are believing God will provide another way. I feel some of why God wants us to conduct our finances in a traditional missionary way is to be an example to our students. They will have to raise their support for their overseas work, and if we have had success raising our own we will be able to teach, guide, and pray them through the process. This is where the trusting part comes in. We don’t trust in the dollars, or in people to provide them. “In God We Trust.” It’s that simple, but that is so hard!
Here is where you can help–
First and foremost we are in need of a team of prayer partners willing to pray for our family on a regular basis. If the Lord is laying us on your heart to lift up in prayer on a regular basis, fill in the form on the sidebar, mark “I want to be a prayer partner”, and we will be sure to keep you up-to-date on our current prayer needs.
We are also in need of financial partners. We do not receive a salary for the work we do at http://trinityaviation.org/, but instead rely on the financial gifts of others to help meet our family’s financial needs. (housing, education, travel expenses, food-that one is really important- utilities, etc…) There are several ways to do this. We are currently looking for 100 people to commit to supporting us for $10 per month, 20 people to commit to $25 per month, and 10 people to commit to $50 per month. (our budget is available upon request)
