October has been a good month for us. We have met with individuals, groups, reconnected with old friends and made some new ones. So many people are excited to hear more about how God is moving in us, and in Costa Rica. We now have 56 individual members of our support team and 4 churches. Last month we prayed for an additional $500/month in pledges in the month of October, and God provided! We have received just over 50% of our monthly amount pledged, and 95% of our one-time support pledged.
God has been faithful to grow our ministry partners in prayer as well as financial support. Experienced missionaries tell us that many times when you get to the mid-point, that is where discouragement sets in because you may feel like you are hitting a plateau. We have a big November planned, with a goal of an additional $1100/month and have set an aggressive target of raising the remaining 48% in the next 3 months.
