Over the last several years we have been committed on several levels; in ministry and personal. Personally, because of inconsistency in location due to travel and our own huger to teach our children, we have committed to homeschooling at this point, which has been a full-time gig for Grace with her partial blindness. Ministry-based, Richee has continued to feel led to volunteer as much time as he can to be the administrator, tech guy, conference coordinator, etc of Daniel Training Network and making way for the gospel to go forth in the nations. As well as serving as an elder at Bethany Church and doing worship and teaching with the children’s ministry there. Work-wise, Richee was given the opportunity by a good friend of his to work with a consultant company, as a contractor, when it comes to web design. As much as Richee would love to be full-time given to ministry purposes, we yet to have our full monthly expenses covered through partners. And thus, Richee does supplement income via his tech services. Because of this, it has pained him to not be able to give anywhere close the amount of time he desires when it comes to DTN and the other ministry purposes. However, we continue to pray and follow the leadership of the Spirit as He leads us in the area of our finances.
We are so thankful and dependent on the generosity of prayer and financial partners who share a similar vision and burden. We do consider ourselves bi-vocational missionaries at this point, even though we are in the United States at the moment. Mainly because what we do is not supported by a salary of any kind and it connects us and the gospel to the nations of the world every week via the online resource center. As part-time missionaries, our family relies on the faithful prayers and generosity of ones like yourself to be able to continue doing the work of ministry day-to-day. If God puts it on your heart to partner with us in the gospel on some level, there are several ways to do this.
Prayer is the most effective way you can partner with us in what we do. We continually look for regular prayer partners – churches, couples, and individuals who would bring us as a family before the throne of grace daily and/or weekly.
If you are praying regularly for our family, please contact us and let us know. It brings an unbelievable amount of encouragement to us all!
There are several ways by which to give financially.
RECURRING MONTHLY GIFTS
Gifts given by monthly partners are huge blessing in terms of helping us cover bills and other regular expenses.
Gifts given not necessarily on a monthly basis but still at regular intervals of time, are a blessing particularly during times of transition or when we have unique extra needs.
One time gifts are a huge blessing in terms of covering ministry projects that the Lord has us putting our hands to (e.g. Biblical children’s curriculum). They are also helpful in times where we have special needs (such as covering the annual costs of domain name).
We are so thankful for all of you whom God has used and continues to use to enable us to carry out the ministry to which He has called us. May the God of all grace and mercy bless and reward you greatly in His coming kingdom. Amen.
