Right now, and as long as I'm in a ministry role, I will be completely relying on the body of Christ to support me in the ministry that God has called me to. And no ministry is better than the other. We are all serving God and He may call us to stay right where we are or He may call us to Des Moines or to Texas..or to Romania. And no matter where we are, we are all in need of a partnership with people in order to function well. Some people may give us a ride to the car shop so we can get our oil changed. Some people may watch our kids for us while we go to the grocery store. Some people may scoop our driveways for us because it's getting harder for us to do that on our own.
And in my life right now, in order for me to go to Romania, I am in need of various partnerships. I am relying heavily on God and His children to partner with me in the call that God has for me in Romania. I am in need of prayer partners. I want to pray for you as you pray for me. I am in need of financial partners. In order for me to go overseas, I am needing people to give financial gifts on a monthly basis, or maybe quarterly or annually is best for you and your family. And I can serve families and churches as they partner with me financially. I am also in need of encouraging partners..aren't we all? How can we encourage one another in our day to day lives?
This past week, God gifted me with a beautiful time of learning more about myself and this next part of the journey with ReachGlobal. I learned more about what it means to partner with someone and how exciting that is! Whatever works are done in Romania will be credited to the people that partner with me in whatever way here in the states. Did you hear that? Whatever I do for the least of these in Romania, you are also partaking in through your partnership with me. How amazing is that?! I am pretty emotional right now :) After this week of training, I am charged and excited to see who God has been preparing to partner with me.
Is it you? Has God been pulling at your heart to partner with me in Romania? I am not the only worthy cause out in the world! :) Many organizations and people are doing wonderful things for the Kingdom. But if God is calling you to partner with me, please contact me! I will be calling and meeting with people in these next days, weeks, and months. I have also updated the "ways to partner with me" page on this blog. Please check that out and let me know what questions and comments you have!
