We are in this together!
Will you stand with us?
Yesterday I was challenge and convicted. I was talking with a friend who was being diligent in his work as a financial planner. He was asking some tough questions. He knew some of my situation, but he didn't let that stop him from doing his job. This conversation left me feeling challenged. I realized that I have not been diligent in some of my responsibilities at Kingdom Outdoors.
I realized that part of my job as Executive Director of Kingdom Outdoors is to ask directly for financial support for this ministry. Sometimes I have done this, but most times I haven't. Before this pandemic hit we had already established that we would do a fundraiser in March. I chose not to when COVID19 came around. I chose not to, because I didn't want to pressure people, I didn't want to ask people to give because I don't know what they may be dealing with.... This is where my friends diligence challenged me. He did not let his perspective of my situation determine if he approached me or not. I realized that by me not being willing to ask people to stand with us in ministry I am taking control instead of giving God control. I don't know everyones situation. I can't! Even if I think I do it is still usually an assumption. I need to stop worrying about if I think someone can or can't give to Kingdom Outdoors. That decision is not for me to make. That is between them and God.
This has taken a huge load off my back! I may get "no" from everyone I send this to. That is totally fine! My being diligent in this are of my work is not measured by the result it is measured by willingness to ask. What happens after the ask is up to you!
Maybe you have already given to Kingdom Outdoors in the past. Thank you for your gift! Would you pray about giving again to help get us through this challenging season? Maybe you are one of our monthly donors. We thank you for your continued support! Will you pray about making an additional one time gift to help us get through this time. Whatever situation you find your self in will you consider committing to pray for us as we continue to answer God's calling on our lives.
Grace and Peace,
