God is good! We have seen some amazingly generous gifts towards our upcoming mission trip over the past week, with total donations and pledges now reaching around $17,000! Every year as I plan these mission trips, I am freshly convinced of God's faithfulness to his own name and purposes. As Hudson Taylor once said, "God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply." With the gifts we've received designated for books, we should be able to supply every student at the Back to the Bible Training College in South Africa with a Reformation Study Bible, a New Bible Dictionary, a New Bible Commentary, and a book on preaching.
There are still needs and opportunity/time to give. This is what we still need: (1) $10,000 to cover all the other travel costs for this trip. (2) Six people to adopt a pastor with a pledge of $250.00. This allows us to take a dozen books to student/pastor and cover the administrative costs associated with Strategy 112. Please continue praying, spreading the word about what the Lord is doing through this missions strategy, and giving as the Lord leads.
