Well here it goes the fund raising has began! I'm finding that the hardest thing about being a missionary is defiantly finding a balance of when to work and make money to survive in the moment, and going to try to find the people and resources that are going to allow me to move into a full time position. I went before the board of directors for the mission and was approved as a full time missionary. Ignite Missions is an independent mission, this has its advantages and disadvantages. The plus side is that we can serve freely where we choose unlike if you go through a funded organization such as the IMB they tell you where and when you will serve, but they give you a set salary to live in your designated area, the down side to that is typically they are underfunded and live in questionable conditions. Since the mission does not receive support from those large organizations, it is not able to employ a North American, because they could employ a Honduran for a 1/10 of the annual need I have. The advantage to me raising my own support is that I get to be more like a partner than an hired employee, which will give me the freedom to carryout the ministry and call that the Lord is calling me to. I am gaining support I do not want to sound as I am not getting any support, but it is one time donations which I am very great full for it. That being said it is very hard to plan out anything longterm without getting monthly support. Honestly that is my plea for people to pray about what they might be called to give on a monthly basis. I have been mediating on Romans 12:3-8 it talks about the body of Christ and I truly feel called to be a servant, and once again I am asking people that have been blessed to see what part they can play as a supporter of the needs. I truly feel that the only way that the gospel will move forward and that we become a people becoming disciples that makes disciples is that we start to function as a healthy body ''The Body Of Christ''. I have been on the road and going from place to place sleeping from couch to couch hotel to hotel, an God is really surrounding me with some awesome partners in ministry and honestly that's what I more of, I don't wanna do this alone I want people to come on this journey with me and allow God to use and bless their willing hearts. Will it be you?
