Wow! It is really crunch time. We have a challenge from the Kresge foundation. If we raise $1.1 million by March 2007, they will contribute $400,000 and we will have what we need for our building renovation project. Simple, right? So how do we raise a million dollars?!
Step one: PRAY!! Isaiah 58 says that if we share our food with the hungry and provide the poor wanderer with shelter, we will call and the Lord will answer. And if spend ourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, the Lord will guide us and satisfy our needs. Will you join me in calling on the Lord for God's guidance?
We need this building bad. The men in our shelter will be forced out of their present facility in August. Meanwhile, Jesus is sleeping in the boat!
