Business As Missions

Business as a Mission… Jesus said even at age 12, “I must be about my Father’s business.” We are praying for more and more income generating ideas to flourish to help support the ongoing work of the ministry.

“While the earth remains, seed-time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease.” Genesis 9:22

“You make the places where morning and evening have birth to shout for joy. You visit the earth and saturate it with water; You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide them with grain when You have so prepared the earth. You water the field’s furrows abundantly, You settle the ridges of it; You make the soil soft with showers, blessing the sprouting of its vegetation. You crown the year with your bounty and goodness, and the tracks of your chariot’s wheels drip with fatness. The luxuriant pastures in the uncultivated country drip with moisture, and the hills gird themselves with joy. The meadows are clothed with flocks, the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy and sing together.” Psalm 65:8b-13 (Amplified)

What a promise!!

The Lord has made desolate places to bloom again! And so He does with your heart, too. Just as the fields and meadows have blossomed again with the touch of His blessing and favor, so your life and mine are bearing fruit with His richness and bounty.

This year God blessed us with the addition of chickens and banana trees!  As we look at the growing chickens and those ready to lay, the cows being milked, the vegetables producing and the bananas, cassava, maize, and potatoes all about to bring forth fruit in “due season”…

…my heart is reminded again of the harvest of souls for which we have sown rich and precious seed. From the children to the pastors, the teachers to the worship leaders, to the missionaries in the villages all bringing healing of the heart as they carry Bibles in their hands and a song on their lips… all of them are the fruit of the harvest, and we are eternally grateful.

Churches are growing, and souls are discipled daily through the school, the House of Prayer, and the work of faithful leaders who continue to reap the harvest grown from seeds that were sown yesterday by you and me.

As our gardens grow and the animals bring forth their young, our children are also growing and being sustained with daily provision and prayer. And our spiritual children are growing just as quickly and even multiplying!

The fruit is being harvested and more seeds are being sown daily!!

Thank you for sowing, watering, and harvesting right along with us, for eternal rewards, that only increase in value, while our earthly treasures lose their value.

Together we, “lay not up for ourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust do corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; But we lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth or rust do corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal; For where our treasure is, there our heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
