>I have 6 days until my fundraising deadline, and need another 7% to reach the minimum 90%. Please pray with me! Its been amazing seeing the 83% I have come in piece by piece, and I am completely confident the rest will come, and its just a matter of timing!
I was recently reading through Acts and came to the portion of Paul’s travels where he is testifying before the Sanhedrin and violence breaks out about his teachings, and the Roman soldiers guarding him feared for his life. Scripture says the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.” Paul is then taken before Governor Felix on trial after escaping an ambush by the Sanhedrin, survives a shipwreck on Malta (where he gets to share the gospel), and through it all he has the confidence of knowing that he’s been called to testify in Rome, so obviously he will make it to Rome. I’ve been encouraged by that knowlege in my time raising support as well, with a conviction that I am specially fitted for this term at RVA and I will go!!! Obviously for me to be there, the money will come in! That confidence is a blessing I am thankful for, as I am sure Paul was comforted by the assurance that he would live to testify in Rome.
There is so much to do before I leave! And it can be very overwhelming, to the point that I ignore it and just perform the perfunctory daily duties. I’ve gotta get busy! =) Thank you so much for your prayer and support this far, and please continue to pray for me during this next month of preparations.
Love to all!
