The Blessing of Raising Your Own Support

Post Media

A few days ago, missionary Manie Van den Heever posted about the difficulties and blessings of having to raise your own support.

Here's a bit of what he had to say:

"Serving in a ministry like ours, one can feel quite lonely at times, especially when faced with a crisis or need that you don’t even know where to begin trying to meet it. It is amazing to experience the love and help that the Lord raises up in times like those, often from a quarter where we would have not at all expected it. Then I realize all over again what a blessing it is to have people serving the Lord with us. So, I praise the Lord for putting us in a situation where we are forced, as it were, to share our lives with others, so we can know the blessing of many people being involved, not only in our lives, but in God’s work as a result."

    I really like the concept, difficulties and blessings of having to raise your own support. This is the Biblical Principle which was practiced by the Disciples of Jesus, Apostle Paul himself admonishes the Church he pioneered to raise the support and do the work of Christ. The same he practiced... PRAISE THE LORD
