So What's The Plan
"Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails" Proverbs 19:21 NIV.
Our immediate plans look like this…
- Pray, Pray, Pray
- Cut operations budget
- Approval for stimulus funds to assist covering payroll
- Fundraise enough to end the year in the black
In the months ahead our plans to keep the mission going are…
Resume trips later this year: Our most optimistic plan is to have mission trips resume by the end of the year. We’re monitoring the situation daily.
Raise $270,000 to end the year in the black: We have always had to raise funds to operate, but now it is more critical than ever. If all of our trips are cancelled this year, we can still end in the black by raising approximately $270,000.
Way Maker Match: Some of our Amazon Outreach family have combined to provide $135,000 in matching funds. This represents half of what we’ll need to end the year in the black. God is making a way!
Our Back Up Plan: In God’s providence, we had just approved a ten year improvement and expansion plan, but now those funds are on hold to serve as a reserve. We hope not to have to use these funds, but we are so thankful to have them if needed.
Thankfully our Hope is not confined by our circumstances. And we know that God’s hand is on the mission because of His heart for The Forgotten People of the Amazon.
