Several of you have graciously asked how you can give to our new ministry. We are blown away by your generosity! Thank you! Already, God has shown off by supplying us with the $1,300 needed for training and the $500 needed for our deposit on the apartment!!! We never asked the couple that donated for the money, and we don't even know them very well! But God decided to use them as a direct answer to our prayers. And now they get to be a part of what God is doing in Rwanda! It was such a great (and needed) reminder that though we have what feels like a million needs right now, God will sustain us. Never once have we ever walked alone.
By June, will be set up with a highly reputable mission organization through whom all special and recurring gifts can be given on our behalf. This will, in turn, make all donations tax-deductible. If you are interested in this, we would love to sit down with you (or at least chat over the phone) to personally tell you all about all that God's doing, and to formally invite you to partner with us. At that point, you could pledge to begin giving in June.
In the meantime, there are still several needs (such as medical bills, moving expenses, etc...) that we won't be able to pay for through the mission organization but obviously have to be taken care of somehow before moving. If you would like to help us meet these needs, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set that up. Just know we won't be able to make it tax deductible.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our humble ramblings!
