Ye Have Not Because Ye Ask Not…James 4:2
By Rev. Robert S. Liichow
Anyone who has supported Discernment Ministries International for any length of time knows that we strive not to continually ask our partners for financial support. When DMI does ask it is because we have a serious need for support.
That time has come and we must ask for your help. During the last two months we’ve seen a very significant drop in financial support. It could be due to “tax-time” or other economic pressures, or possibly people simply forgetting to send in a donation.
As most of you know DMI is a small ministry but one with a rather large outreach through the internet, our newsletter, books, cd’s and other publications. In April DMI received several appeals for materials from overseas but we have not been able to send anything due to a lack of funds.
We are very thankful for those partners who faithfully give every month, without their faithfulness DMI would not be able to operate at all. Yet many people give sporadically which makes it very difficult to plan ahead, to set a budget and determine who we can help.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I wish I could wave my hands over your donation envelop and decree a “100-fold blessing” on your gift, but I cannot (nor can anyone else for that matter). All I can promise you is that DMI works hard to be good stewards of what is entrusted to us, knowing that one day we will have to give an account to God.
DMI understands financial times are difficult, but we also know that our gracious God does bless giving (how He chooses to bless you is His business). Please help DMI out by making use of the enclosed envelop and helping us meet some very pressing needs. Thanks!
His servant and yours,
Rev. Bob Liichow
