I know I’ve posted several times asking my readers to help out those in need, but this is serious. Our dear friend Cindy Jacobs needs $115,000 immediately or she’ll be forced to close down one of her many Godly projects. So won’t you please give?
Also, if I may be totally transparent, it has been a time of intense prayer, with Mike and me awakening in the middle of the night and, both individually and together, seeking God for a solution to relieve the immense financial pressure Generals faces. Some of the critical projects Generals has taken on, such as our Reformation Prayer Network and our prophetic television broadcast, God Knows, have previously been funded to a large extent by some major foundations. For a variety of reasons, these groups are no longer able to invest in these major projects at the same level as in the past.
So, quite frankly, we’ve been limping – using the limited resources we have to faithfully continue what we believe are mission-critical assignments for Generals. But now, we face a dilemma. How can we continue our Reformation Prayer Network and our Freedom21 project, fighting human trafficking, without adequate funding? And how can we continue producing and broadcasting our God Knows program, which ministers to millions each week – many of whom live in the most unreached parts of the world, in languages such as Russian, Arabic and Spanish – without adequate funding?
As Mike and I have knelt beside our bed during this 40th Wedding Anniversary week, we have taken these questions, and others, to the Lord: “Should we just pull back from all these important projects? Do you want us to abandon them?”
Last week, I sent you an email inviting you to become ministry partners with us, but did so without mentioning the great financial challenge we are facing. At the moment, we are looking at a financial need of $115,000. In addition to cutting expenses, we have personally forgone our salaries to do these projects. We believe God is our provider.
That is why I am writing to you now. Would you consider sending a generous donation to Generals International to keep critical initiatives, such as Freedom21, alive? I can think of no better anniversary or birthday gift right now than to know that the work of Generals will continue to free, bless, equip and empower people. We know that God will supply and bless those who financially support all of the life-changing projects we are doing.
Okay, a couple things. First, it isn’t true that you believe God is your provider. You think your credulous followers are your provider. And if you really believed that giving money away led to God blessing you, you’d be sending money to them. But look on the bright side, at least you won’t go hungry — you’ve always got that bottomless bowl of spaghetti to eat.
