A few weeks ago we shared about our 30% in 30 Days campaign (Click here for the original post.). An update is overdue!
We started the month of June feeling rather uncertain and discouraged. Still needing 30% of our financial partnership goal with only one month to go until the anticipated start date (July 1) of our new assignment, I suppose that was to be expected.
Today, June 25, though we still have a ways to go before we meet our goal, we nonetheless feel hopeful. We have gained a few new partners and some current partners have increased the level of their partnership. (A big thank you to those of you who fall in these categories, as well as to all of our partners! We are so grateful to each of you!) We also had the opportunity to spend last weekend with a wonderful congregation in Sarasota that has a vision for worldwide Bible translation and understands how our new assignment can be used to transform lives — and several verbal commitments for financial partnership were made.
Not counting those verbal commitments since we don’t know details yet, we are at 72% of our financial partnership goal with just one week to go until July 1. We are getting a little nervous that we won’t be able to start as planned, but we know that God has performed far bigger miracles than this and that He has big things in store. (If you missed it before, we cannot start our new assignment until we have monthly/quarterly/annual commitments reaching 100% of our goal.)
If you would like to join our team please let us know as soon as possible (even if you do not set up your gift immediately), as this will help us to plan our start date and know where we are with commitments.
You can easily set up a gift online using the NEW Wycliffe.org site; click here to check that out. We appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing how God grows our team!
