33% of my support goal is quite an achievement--especially considered that this time last year I was pretty much at 0%! The Lord has blessed me with many old and new friends who have partnered with my financially and in prayer. Hopefully with this momentum continuing in my favor I will have launched out to Japan before this time next year! Please keep me in your prayers!
I also did some fancy math earlier today and found out that in order to reach 100% (an additional 4,400$/month) of my support I will need an additional:
12 individual supporters at 30$/month
9 individual supporters at 60$/month
6 individual supporters or churches at 100$/month
3 individual supporters or churches at 300$/month
2 individual supporters or churches at 500$/month
1 church at 1000$/month (the cost of a single part-time youth pastor)!
You can visit the Converge Worldwide website to give directly (monthly or annually). All donations are tax deductible. Surprisingly, I did all that math without having taken a single math class since High School (I have the minor in the History of Science and Technology from the UW to prove it). Look at the beautiful symmetry!
Please continue to pray for me as I seek to partner together with others hoping to expand God's Kingdom among the Japanese.
