We are all aware that the part of an iceberg above water is only a small part of the whole. Most of it is underwater and unseen. Yet the tip wouldn’t be there without the rest of it. We (Pastor Moses, Nancy and myself) are the tip of this ministry that is seen, but we wouldn’t be afloat if it weren’t for the rest of you supporting us and holding us up! I can’t express with words how grateful we are to each of you who pray and/or give to this ministry.
The unseen part of an iceberg is large and provides stability for the top because it spreads over a large distance. In the USA those who pray and give come from many different places and backgrounds. Some live in various other parts of the world, like Australia and China, Africa and various countries in Europe. Many in India pray for us as well. Pastor Moses’ church prays long and often. So do the pastors in India who know us and have heard us. They lead their churches in prayer for us as well.
It is very humbling, yet also encouraging, to know we have the love, prayers and financial support from so many. More than 60 different individuals or groups contributed to CTO last year. The vast majority give small gifts regularly through the year, but they add up to provide for our needs.
Thanks so much for reading these blogs, praying for us and giving. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt we wouldn’t be able to do this without you. And the reward and blessing God has for us to travel He also has for those who support us in prayer in finances. These is no tip of an iceberg without the rest holding it up!
