Well, Ingrid and I just got back from a few days in San Juan Capistrano, CA. We were there for Crusade Training and it was very good. We had time to get some rest, refocus and refine some of our methods for raising support.
We drove out on Saturday and checked in to the conference on Sunday afternoon. Sunday morning we visited Saddleback Church. It was really a great time. We enjoyed the worship and the message. It was all about how believers need to share the good news with the people around them. And that is the bottom line. We are all surrounded by people who have a great need, and we can tell them the solution to that need.
We continue to move forward in raising our support. We are now at 26%. We have fallen about a month behind our goal, but we are firm in our belief that God will provide. We are doing our best to be faithful to our part in the process.
We are now at 21%. This is just a touch off of our earlier pace, but that is not unusual. Things seem to move in jumps and starts- rather than a consistent flow. We are confident in God’s provision and His faithfulness to our endeavour.
The guest speaker at Church yesterday delivered an extremely dynamic sermon on faith. It really spoke to my heart and was a great reminder of what an awesome God we serve. He is more than capable of meeting our every need, even small ones like financial stuff. (They seem big sometimes but really in the big picture, there are so many things of much greater importance.)
We continue to move forward. We are now at 17% of our total goal for monthly support. It has been incredible to see how God brings new partners along side of us in this ministry. We look forward to turning that investment into work that will impact people all over the globe.
God has been good, taking care of us and helping us to make good use of our time. We are so glad that He is in charge of this whole process, because we certainly wouldn’t be smart enough to work out all the details. We are seeing how He provides for each new situation and makes provision for events before we even know they will take place. It’s very exciting and humbling.
Well, it was a good week on the team building front. God has blessed us greatly and we are very excited about what has been happening. We had a good number join our ministry team this week and we were very encouraged. We are now a touch above 10% on reaching our total support.
This last week we had the opportunity to share our ministry with a small group, in the home of one of our supporters. It was a great time with fellowship, some information about our ministry and ice cream. Ingrid and I tell everyone a bit about Crusade and what our role will be in Florida. Later, we contact those who were there to see if they would like to be a part of our support team. It was just an awesome time and we all had fun. If you think you might like to do something like this in your home, give us a call. We’d love to set it up!
Keep praying for us- that we would have the energy to keep up the pace, and that we would use our time wisely. Let us know how we can pray for you. Prayer is the one thing none of us can do without.
Well, we are at 7% on raising support! We thank God for His faithfulness in getting us this far and look to Him to provide the rest. This months prayer letter is going out today. Keep an eye out for it in your mailbox. This month’s issue has cute kid goodness in it!
Can we pray for you? Would you like other members of our ministry team to pray for you as well? Shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how we can pray and to what extent we can share your request with others. Those requests for the whole team will be put up on the site. You can also call us or write if you don’t want to e-mail.
This is the web site of J.R. and Ingrid Peck. It is where we have information about our family, our ministry and our interests. The site is brand new and we are working on getting things up and running. Please stop by once in a while to see what is going on.
