Donations Matched!

All the glory goes to God.

We have seen amazing things happen in the past four months. People have invested in us, and our vision has become their vision. We have heard from people that our project and ministry will take time.

But, who’s time were they calculating?

We are on God’s time. When God says move, we move. When God gives us the tools and resources, we utilize them.

For those of you that have jumped on this crazy bandwagon, we can't thank you enough.

Thank you for posting and sharing our website, blog posts, and our vision with others.

We are so grateful.

I have always struggled with the burden of fundraising. I've never been excited about asking for donations. Yet over and over I'm told that I better get use to it because that’s a major component of non-profit work. And over and over I'm told that people want to give. They just need to be made aware of the needs.

Last night, on our blog post we posted that we need to raise $10,000 for land. We wrote that we are hoping to raise in two weeks time. While writing this, Amy and I debated whether that was an okay way of "putting out our needs.” We took a chance and just went with it!

An hour later we got a message from a donor saying that they would match all donations up to $5,000. We were ecstatic! For two weeks all of our supporter’s donations will be matched up to $5,000! Which if you do the math that means we could have $10,000 in two weeks!

Your $50 becomes $100. Your $500 becomes $1000. This is a great opportunity for us as an organization to move forward. You can help!

There are two ways you can donate:
