I know this is crazy (I prefer the word audacious), but for the next 30 days, I’m going to ask a lot of people to give me a dollar. Why on earth would you give me your dollar? After all, you can buy a lot of quality e-books for a dollar. You can buy an ice cream sandwich for a dollar. You can buy a pizza slice for a dollar. You can buy lunch for a dollar?
Why would you give me your e-book, ice cream sandwich, pizza slice and/or lunch?
Let me tell you why…
This year, I am going to Egypt. I’ve known since last year that this was the year I needed to go, but it wasn’t a complete GO! until earlier this year. I didn’t think it would happen this quickly. I was sure I was going to stay in China, where I’d been serving for the past two years, for at least three more years. God had other plans.
I received my call to missions when I was 21 (I’m 30 now). And Africa was narrowed down to Egypt not long after. This country has been in my heart and prayers for years. This year, I get to go. I get to step into the land and see the giants there. I should be terrified, and I was, but now, I’m not, because I know He has a plan for me there. I’ve been raising funds for the past few months, and He has been faithful to provide, but I still need $1,000.
I was praying and meditating on it this morning, and this is what I felt I needed to do: If I can get 1,000 people (strangers and friends alike) to give me $1, then I’ll have what I need.
This is why I’m asking you to give me a dollar, and why I think you should. It’s giving to the unreached (those who have never yet heard the Gospel). It’s giving towards the destiny God has ordained for my life. I hope and pray that you consider giving me your dollar.
