Let’s Do the Numbers – End of the Year Giving

Ryan and I leave for Australia in one week, and year end giving ends just a few days later.  We are so abundantly thankful for all the individuals, churches and families who are already partnering with us.  If you aren’t already giving, please pray about becoming a part of what God is going in Australia.Screen Shot 2016-12-17 at 6.32.46 PM.pngWe praise God for how he has provided in many ways!  We are thankful for the provision of an apartment for our first 6 months in Perth.  This will get us through my first semester before we try to find a bigger more semi-permanent flat to rent.  Ryan and I are amazed at how God provides and are so thankful for a place to call our own in Perth.  Let me know if you want our address, it will be fun to get mail in Australia.

We are currently at 91%!  And we also have received some very generous end of the year gifts.  Each gift is a blessing to us.  In order to be at 100% we still need another $1000 in monthly giving.  Any amount pledged monthly gets us closer and as seen below, gifts of all amounts make a difference.

5 faithful givers @ $100 a month = $500
4 faithful givers @ $50 a month = $200
8 faithful givers @ $30 a month = $240
6 faithful givers @ $10 a month = $60

Thank you to everyone who has already been giving and for those of you praying for us!  We look forward to sharing the journey with you as we ring in the new year in Perth Western Australia.  2017 should be a very interesting year.

15 Days Until Christmas Eve

Do you have your Christmas shopping done?  Ryan and I were done early because we were originally planning on being in Australia for Christmas.  But we’re thankful for the time we get to share with family and friends over the next couple of weeks.

Even though I’m typically an early shopper, there is often one or two people who make it a challenge to find just the right gift.  I know everyone has at least one hard to shop for person on their list.  And most everyone can do with a little nourishment.  I blogged about this when it first came out Nüresh- A New Way to Feed Your Mind, Soul and Spirit but I figured a little holiday reminder would be good because this would be a great gift for someone who is hard to shop for.screen-shot-2016-12-09-at-8-41-10-amFrom the description on the website: NÜRESH gives you thousands of hours of the most inspirational and informative premium spoken word content in one innovative and easy-to-use Web interface. Listen, learn and still have time to live your life.

And since it’s price had dropped recently, if you buy a subscription now, it’s only $9.99 per month for life.  So if you have a $30 shopping budget for that hard to shop for person in your life, you can give the gift of three months of listening and then if they choose to keep the subscription, it’s still affordable for them.screen-shot-2016-12-09-at-8-26-25-amRyan and I recently signed up and are excited to check out some of the speakers.  And the database of resources will just keep growing so we are looking forward to having access to the content as it increases too.  Give the gift of Nüresh this holiday season because it can nourish your mind, soul and spirit all year long!
