Let’s face it, I say “I’m moving to DC” and one of the first things to pop into people’s minds is:
“Won’t that be expensive?”
Why yes, yes it will be :). Although it is a reality that moving to DC will not be cheap, I am encouraged to know that there are so many people in my life that have a heart to support the cause I am moving for and also just to support me in this new journey. Even more encouraging is the fact that there are so many other people who would like to support the journey of those associated with our new church plant, people I have never met and may never meet, and therefore they may hear about this need and consider sharing or donating.
Whatever happens I know the Lord will provide for Emilie, myself and every other person and needs associated with our team. As I’ve said before, one of the ways the Lord provides is by using people. I like that He does this and allows us to play a role in His plan in our own way.
So with that being said, here is a link to my new fundraising page. It is initially set at a goal to cover the costs Emilie and I will have in moving our stuff and driving our cars across the country in July. In reality this might seem like an odd thing to find raise for, as it isn’t life threatening and seems a bit presumptuous and self-serving, but I hope I’ve communicated in my YouCaring post that asking for support for myself is actually a way that the Lord is teaching me to trust him.
With that in mind I’ll leave you with this:
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
– Phil. 4:4-7
