Over time, we have noticed one thing that we believe is the key to success- that is to have big, strong, (even a little crazy) faith in our God. So many times we say that we have faith and that we trust God to provide but the reality is that we're only trusting in ourselves to get the work done. That is not going to get us to the mission field. Instead, each day we make the decision to fully trust in God to provide our funding. We do our best and we work hard to share with as many people as possible but we don't put our faith in that. Our faith is only in God and in His ability to work in people's hearts to draw them to give.
When we begin to doubt or have thoughts that we're not going to be able to do it we immediately take those thoughts captive. "No, I am not going to doubt because my faith is not in myself, not in my own efforts, but in the God of the universe who can do all things". As Christians, we would all agree that God can provide ANY amount of money in a split second if He so chooses, but do we live like we believe that? We're choosing to, and we believe that is the key to success in fundraising as a missionary.
