12 May Update on Funding
We need your help financially. Most of our visiting mission teams have cancelled or are contemplating cancelling for the year. In addition, many of our regular supporters and donors in the U.S. are struggling to meet payroll for their employees or just keeping their families’ expenses paid. We have seen an impact already in our monthly donations, and we can easily see that the trend for the coming months is likely to be down, not up. In spite of these hurdles though, we have seen others who are able step up to help fill the “holes” in our monthly support. The inspired words in Psalm 127 are ever in our hearts and minds right now. Solomon, the author of Psalm 127 said, “Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for he grants sleep to those he loves.” These words bring great comfort because we know our only real security in this life is our hope in God. This is not the first time that we have faced adversity. It is just another reminder that God, who feeds and clothes the sparrows, is our gracious and loving Heavenly Father. Please join us in praying for the poor and the suffering wherever they may be. Pray too for our leaders—those who are leading Honduras as well as those who are leading the United States. God is in control and His good and perfect will….will be done. Amen.
