As we gear up for our flight out of the country, Jacki and I have been overwhelmed with the team that Jesus is gathering around us. We’ve been praying for faithful partners who have the same passion and commitment that we have and have been blown away by the caliber of people that have decided to join us. We want to give you an update as to where we are at financially, so that you can continue to pray for us and help to connect us with those you know who would like to be a part of this journey.
We mentioned before that our budget for this transitional year into Thailand is $30,000. If we were to break that down into “fillable buckets”, we would need 5 people to pledge to $200 a month, 10 people to pledge to $50 a month, 20 to pledge to $25 a month, and 50 people to commit to $10 a month.
We want to thank all of our partners so far for your sacrifice, generosity, and commitment. You are all so dear to our hearts. We cannot wait to send pictures, video, and stories over the waters to you so that you can see the lives that you are investing in.
Okay, here’s the good news. At this moment we have received $7,780 per year in pledges for our first two years. In hand, we now have $3,165 from our partners. Here’s a chart to visually explain how this stacks up:
Once again, we want to thank all our partners for making this commitment with us. We know our God is big and good to his word. David said,
“I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” Psalm 37:25
We are grateful and proud to be making this journey of faith with you, and excited about the trials and joys that we will find ahead of us. Thank you for being our family.
