Phase 1, God Story
We can praise God for the answered prayer of meeting the Phase I support goal! Before I left for my time in the Smoky Mountains I was at 85% of monthly support goal. When I returned from my trip there was an email in my inbox from a family who decided to join the monthly ministry support team. The amount God led them to invest was the exact amount to hit 100% of my monthly support goal for Phase I! What a cool God story.
Phase 2, Gearing Up
What does support raising look like? Prayer, phone calls, introduction emails, follow-up emails, check-in emails, texts, more prayer, humility, windshield time, face-to-face meetings, coffee, brainstorming, even more prayer, rejoicing, first contacts, cancellations, discouragement, rescheduling, inviting others to partner with and invest in God's ministry and work downtown, logging everything to keep track of it all, and definitely more prayers.
As fall arrives, the Royals make another run at the playoffs, the Chiefs hit the field, the St. Louis Blues take to the ice and God has me on the continued journey of raising support for his ministry in downtown KC! The goal for Phase II is $2,000 of support per month. The support will come from churches, organizations, businesses, families and individuals. Thank you for asking God to encourage me and to bring the Gospel to Kansas City.
