In the midst of all the major issues taking place in the world in defeating Satan’s strongholds and advancing the Kingdom of God I feel am honestly feeling guilty asking for prayers for ourselves.
I am committed to not letting the fire at the Community of the Cross divert us from either ministry or the strategic level prayer work that we are called to. However, we are dealing with a major crisis on the home front and urgently need both prayer and financial support.
As the fire raged damaging the log house we experienced a profound protection and peace from the Holy Spirit. But now that time has passed and the Spirit has lifted from us we face the crisis of the fire at the Community of the Cross and we are dealing with the grief of loss.
There is the huge amount of work that is required to connect with the insurance company, replace essential equipment and await decisions about the future of the log house. The loss of our teaching and hospitality space means there are extra challenges for hosting our fall ministry events. In addition, we have run out of money in general funds to cover program expenses as well as our support.
Cindy and I made a video sharing our hearts with you of the massive challenge that we face.
Two ways you can support us right now
Ask the Father to unleash the financial provision we need right now in order to meet the extra expenses and to meet the operational needs of the ministry.
If you can do donate now, or join our Sustaining the Flame program, that would be immensely helpful.
If the Lord is speaking to you about making a donation you can do that right now through our website.
The Prayer House
Please join us in praying for those major donations needed for building the Prayer House which is more urgent than before.
If the Lord is leading you to make a major gift to this ministry support and for building the Prayer House, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on my mobile phone at 828 230 8136. I am very eager to talk with you about this and to share the vision and the need.
The Emotional Impact
The loss of the log house is more than just the loss of a building here is Jeanne Kraak who shares with us some precious memories of how it was her husband, Bill, and son, Nate, who built the back porch as the starting point of the ministry at the COC.
Frankly, we are all dealing with this loss in our own ways and are struggling to move forward with advancing the ministry under the obstacles of the grief, but also the lack of funds. So please pray for us.
Thanks for your love, friendship and prayers.
