Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May you all keep us in mind during this Christmas season.
Family, I usually don’t do this, but we are really low on donations concerning the mission that is ahead of us to finally go to Ghana and begin putting things in place to build this community. I know for those who have been following us for two years, you have heard that before just to found out, a few messages later, the LORD delayed us from going, which was a real sacrifice. Not only on my part but on your part as well. For you guys have been with us along this journey, and I know that many of you carry this community in your hearts. So, I understand if you have felt some hesitation in giving, but we actually have our tickets purchased for the first time and we are leaving very soon I may add.
I also understand it’s the holidays and many of you have much to do and much to give to other charitable causes. But if you can please think of us. The Lord has had me give much of the donations we received away to those who are in need, and he always reminds me to not get lax in charity even when I think, Lord are you sure? That is a lot of funds, and our donations are dwindling. Nope, He causes me to give even more. We have raised $4,600 for Joey and his kids which is amazing. We have given over $1000 to Children’s Hope which is a small ministry starting up in Zambia.. They have poor kids on the street and are even needing more funds for the children this Christmas. They are in need of $1000 for the children, and we want to help them. We also used $4,500 for Heartdwellers Gifts which we will be launching this month to provide FREE gifts and merchandise for each of you. We are in need of many donations for that ministry alone because it is costly to ship internationally, and we want to provide these gifts from Jesus to you with no shipping costs. So, we are giving, giving, and helping, in hopes that your hearts will be touched to give to us so that we can continue giving and helping others. But, more importantly, to finally build the City of God community.
In Ghana, Sister Therese and I are going to survey the land and contract laborers to begin building. We need building materials, to pay the laborers, and also to help the children once we are there. We want to provide food, help for the parents and some cool gift for the children. Many of the street children can’t properly read so I feel the Lord gave me creative ideas to reach them with His love. We want to make some bead bracelets that say, God’s princess, God’s prince, or with different words of love and give it out to all the children and adolescents we meet. So, they are touched with God’s love. So please family you all have been so faithful and so generous for so long and we appreciate all your prayers, words of encouragement, and support. But if you could think of us this month especially, we would greatly appreciate it. I have started a fundraiser on my Facebook page per the Lord’s instructions as we are trying to raise funds for $10,000 for the City of God mission before we leave. The link is provided below. So, whatever you are able to give us would be greatly appreciated! I have started a Fundraiser on my Facebook page, per the Lord’s instructions, as we are trying to raise funds for $10,000.00 for the City of God mission before we leave. The link is provided below. Share this with someone whom you know has a heart to give to the poor and to missions. If you don’t have Facebook, then you can always give to our PayPal account, and the donation link is below. Will you help us with these missionary endeavors and finally build the City of God?
Funny after finishing this message I got up to grab something to eat and felt led to pull a Rhema card out of my box and it says, “Sometimes a delay in your plans is God’s protection.”
[Laugh] I think Jesus was not only answering me but defending Himself here. Thank you, LORD, you are right. We thank you LORD for your protection and for not allowing us to move forward in this mission prematurely.
Thank you so much family. May the LORD bless you as generously as you have blessed us. God bless you until the next message.
