What an amazing week! I (Shelly) am in Calgary helping with this great workshop that Wycliffe Canada is offering to their staff. PD is an acronym for Partnership Development. Often this term is mistaken for just our financial support raising, but it is SO much more than that! Not only does it include the development of financial and prayer partners, but also the awesome opportunity to build relationships with and minister to these partners!
We have a wonderful group of partners on our ministry team and we are very thankful for each one of you! As many of you know, we have been on a journey of Partnership Development over the last couple of years and God has blessed us in amazing ways! We are still short about $700, but we are confident that the Lord will supply this last bit to bring us up to 100% of our ministry budget.
But, back to this amazing workshop! The PD team have done a great job of building a two day workshop to help equip our members. They have even supplied each participant/couple with a coach to walk with them along this journey. This morning, our president, Roy Eyre talked about his heart to see all of our members at 100% of their ministry budget by the end of 2013. Please pray with us that this will be accomplished! I believe that this workshop (and the others that are to come) are a huge step in seeing this goal come to fruition!
Thank you again to all of our partners that support our ministry! You are an essential part of our ministry and we appreciate each of you!
