Encouraging Words

Around the end of August we received an email from former missionaries to Ecuador, relatives of members of our church.  They spoke of their fond memories of Ecuador and Quito, and also of the cooperative relationship HCJB Global had with their and other mission societies:

HCJB has been a great help to develop God’s work throughout Ecuador.  They would offer Bibles over radio broadcasts and contact missions working in those areas where contacts were made and we saw churches founded through this cooperation.

Also encouraging were their comments about raising support:

We want to encourage you to raise up a very good support team.  Don’t allow the present economic situation to discourage you because God’s people are out there and the Holy Spirit is faithful and He will place you on their hearts and they will give and pray as the Lord directs.  Just ask the Lord for what you need and He will do it.

Since we began fundraising, we have always prayed that 1) God will prepare people to contribute on our behalf to HCJB Global and 2) He will help us discover who those people are.  How encouraging to have this affirmed–“He will place you on their hearts”— by people who have experienced the marathon of establishing a team of faithful supporters.

Since receiving their email, financial commitments toward our monthly budget have increased from 10.5% to 19%.  And twice we had new supporters say, “As soon as I heard you talk about going, I was sure that I wanted to help.”  God is faithful.
