I recently finished reading the book "Friend Raising" by Betty Barnett and am now in the middle of reading "Funding Your Ministry" by Scott Morton. I have already learned much and the task of fundraising seems more daunting than ever. I love sharing my heart for South Africa and the work God is doing there through Jabulani Africa Ministries but I am not looking forward to fundraising. In "Funding Your Ministry", Morton said that God has already chosen my supporters. This is very comforting to me. It doesn't mean that I do nothing in the area of fundraising but that all the hard work has already been done!
These last couple days I've found myself feeling down. It may be attacks from Satan due to my extra time in the Word lately or it may be because I feel completely overwhelmed by...well, everything. (School coming up in a couple weeks, fundraising, ministry decisions, practical errands...the list just continues.) I am in need of extra prayer. Prayer that I would use my time wisely and prayer that I would learn to relax and take life one task at a time.
