How you can you Support our ministry?
join us in our ministry in colombia
We believe this to be the most crucial aspect of how you can partner with our family as we continue on this journey God has called us. It is such a gift and comfort having a strong prayer support team made up of people who are on the other side of the world!
Pray for the missionaries we are working with as they have had a tough few years working in Colombia. Covid coupled with financial challenges are a lot of stress for the team here in Colombia.
Keep Fundacion Rubato in your prayers as they are still in the infancy of all that needs to be accomplished before they can take the next steps toward success. Specifically pray for Alfredo, Steffany, Steffin, and Natalia as they are all dealing with the pressures of starting this undertaking.
Pray for my heart. Being pulled in so many directions these days takes away my focus. God is the ultimate reason I'm here and I want to make sure I am drawing closer to Him despite the busyness of the job.
Lift up Cristian and Evelyn, pastors at the 1st Presbyterian Church. They just welcomed their 2nd child inot the world and are working through being new parents, again.
We are processing/praying/working through potentially bringing in another church plant to our home in the coming months. The pastor already has one active church in the south of Barranquilla but his northern congregation is struggling for space. Pray for wisdom and prudence as we move forward.
Prayers for our team with the Creciendo Con Jesus Project as we prepare for this new year with the kids.
Prayers for me as I go through the next step in my Trauma Competent Care Affiliate Certification process.
Prayers for the weekly meetings of English club in my home. There are lots of people who don't know Jesus showing up weekly and I pray that God will use that time to build relationships and open up conversations that point to Him.
Be praying for my new school group that I am a part of, Paideia Fellowship. It is a lot of work and I love the relationships but it is hard stuff and I want to do really well.
Please lift up my volleyball friends that don't know the Lord. I want them to go to Heaven and know what God is like.
Please pray for my Grandma & Grandpa in Tocoa. They are having health problems and we want them to feel bettter as soon as possible.
For our school group in Barranquilla that those that don't know Jesus would come to know Him. We love them a lot and want them to know God like we do.
If you feel led to partner with us financially, there are a few ways you can help. A welcome part of our journey is support raising within our community of friends and family. Primarily, we are hoping to ally with those who are willing to give on a consistent, monthly basis. This supports us while here in Barranquilla. This group of people will not be distant and disconnected from us. Our goal is to continue to develop strong bonds with those who choose to support us in this way.
Fundraising is a necessary but hard part of what we have to do. Supporters do often change but we need to maintain a certain monthly budget to remain in Colombia with our church plant. Shown below is a simple breakdown of our monthly support costs, we want to be transparent. If you have more specific questions, please don't hesitate to ask! SAM has provided us with amazing resources to further explain our finances in detail.
