$82 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 52 months
The objective of this drive is to raise funds for the purpose of launching a Christian fellowship, to be tentatively called the Beacon Post Christian Fellowship.

Funds will be used to rent of a suite in San Pedro, California, as well as for liability insurance, and a quantity of banquet type chairs.

The suite that has been chosen is a modest one that will accommodate approximately 30 people. It is situated in a large office building near the Port of Los Angeles.

The chairs will be purchased used. 

The goal is to raise funds to cover the above costs for the first year.

31 years ago, this gentleman gave me my first professional career job. I worked for him for nearly seven years. Over the years since, I've often wondered what prompted him to hire me - you see, the only question that I got right on the aptitude test for hire was my name. I asked him about this many years later. Without missing a beat, he told me that I DID spell my name wrong!

I have come to believe that there was divine intervention involved here that went far and above the business that we were in, and that God had commissioned this man to be a mentor to this 18 year old kid.

By the way, several years into my tenure there, he brought me that aptitude test. I looked at it and started laughing. I sat down, and within literally 2 minutes, I corrected all of my answers without so much as breaking a sweat - right off the top of my head. When I handed it back to him and asked for a raise, HE started laughing!

A man of God with a sense of humor - I hope that's what I've grown up to be.

We've got chairs! It took a bit of doing to get them packed into (and onto) my ride, but we've got chairs!!

Yesterday afternoon, I was installing a multi tiered shelving unit in my storage unit, making room to store the chairs until I am able to secure the suite. Anyway, I took off my glasses and set them on the shelf at the 3rd (of 5) level down. Within about 2 minutes, the shelf collapsed and leveled my glasses. It's a mystery to me why the shelf collapsed. It had been standing for the better part of a half hour. Except for my glasses, nothing had been put on it. It hadn't been so much as breathed on. Naturally, picking up the chairs will need to be postponed for a few hours today while I re- construct the "Tower of Babel." I was annoyed, and even a bit angry, but then I remembered something. Ephesians 6:12 says that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places," and it re-affirmed my resolve to see through this "mission from God."

So this morning, I'm up earlier than I wanted to be, I'll go fix the shelf, pick up the chairs, head over to the optometrist, and take care of some other business that needs to be resolved before Monday. Then tonight, I will give thanks to God for a productive and successful day! In Jesus' name!! (That's what you call a faith confession - remember that!)
