Raising Support

So I must admit that I have been a little concerned about having to raise support again. That concern, I suppose, just comes from experience. I have always been able to raise the support that I needed for a short-term mission trip. God has blessed us greatly and I have always used that as a confirmation that I was suppose to go on the trip. But for some reason it seems that where we have been abundantly blessed in raising short-term funds, we have never been able to raise much support for our daily mission work here in Atlanta in the refugee and immigrant community. I believe that there are several factors. One being that short-term support is just that a one time gift and people are not prepared to make a long term commitment for monthly support. Secondly, I have found that there are people who believe that refugees and immigrants should not be in the US so therefore they will not support our work with them. Whatever your stance is on this issue, I do submit that these people still need Jesus and to know His love and forgiveness! They are part of our Jerusalem! "You shall witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in all Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Acts 1:8
We can change our world and our nation for Christ but we have tp be willing to share the gospel with all people!!
