God continues to astound us with his generous grace toward our Nicaragua Trip. Two weeks ago, I posted that we faced a $675 need to reach 50% of our needed funds for the trip. That Sunday, our church gave a tremendously sacrificial offering of nearly $1800 to shoot us up to 56% raised. With additional gifts that have come in since then, we now have another participant fully funded and our trip has reached 60% of our need. We are so thankful to our friends and family members who have generously lived the truths expressed by Paul in 2 Cor 8:13-15
For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened, but that as a matter of fairness your abundance at the present time should supply their need, so that their abundance may supply your need, that there may be fairness. As it is written, “Whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack.” (ESV)
We hope that through this trip we can supply the needs of those who have given through a renewed passion and vigor for the work of God in our lives. That is the payback, changed lives, of us and prayerfully the missionaries and people of Nicaragua. May Jesus Christ be praised!
