It’s Been 50 Days!

Psalm 121

“I lift my eyes up to the mountains – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watched over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”

We have officially passed our halfway point as of April 4th and it absolutely blows us away to be able to tell you that we are at 53% of our monthly support budget! Our journey to 100% in 100 Days began on February 15th and ends May 24th. More than one missionary friend had told us before we started this process, “Just wait and see how God provides…” and we have found that to be completely true. When we first began meeting with potential donors we were nervous, of course. It’s hard to ask people for money! But as we continue to share our story and our vision, and as our support family continues to grow, we are encouraged and amazed. Our passion grows and enables us to share even more. We are doing the leg work. We have prepared and researched and made the appointments and created the spreadsheets, but God has done incredible work in the hearts of everyone who’s met with us.

One aspect of our support raising that we are not as focused on right now is our moving costs. From what we’ve read and people we’ve talked to, it’s more challenging to attain monthly givers so that has been our primary task. But lo and behold, the money is being provided for that as well. $8,000 of the approximately $30,000 has been raised. Without really trying. Amazing.

We also sold our camping trailer without putting it up for sale. Word of mouth and it was gone. The money from the sale of the trailer will provide our $10,000 emergency fund. Our rental house is in escrow as we speak so that we will be able to leave completely debt free.

So that pretty much sums up our most recent updates. There are lots of exciting things going on right now at El Ayudante, and we can’t wait to join them. I encourage you to visit their website and blog at www.eahonduras.org and follow them on Facebook as well.
