Peterson's 5-day Practical Challenge

$5000 in 5 days : Rent, Utilities, Tires - 

We want to ask for your help! - Salinas is an amazing community with very real needs and problems, and we are here to partner to see the root causes of those needs and problems addressed and healed.  We are partnering with amazing organizations and people of this city to see the community healed and restored where that is needed!

Will you help us raise $5000 to pay needed living expenses in order to be able to continue our work in Salinas as charitable workers serving the local community?   We need to pay $2000 in back rent as well as $1000 for this month and cover back bills (we are 1 month behind on most of our bills) plus monies to buy back tires for our car!  

Donations can be given online through GoFundMe, through Pay Pal (this link will take you to our blog where there is a PayPal donate button) or by check written to:Kingdom Hearts Cry Ministries & sent to: Kingdom Hearts Cry Ministries, PO Box 951, Salinas, CA 93902.  All donations are tax-deductible.


We have been living very simply as non-profit workers with our own charitable organization, Kingdom Hearts Cry Ministries, and miraculously seen the loaves & fishes multiply.  We need a hand up to get caught up as we move ahead with funding major projects & this ongoing charitable work in the amazing community of Salinas.

As many of you know we laid down "normal life" about a year and a half ago to once again pursue working for and with charitable organizations with a passion to see people get healthy & whole spiritually and emotionally.  In that journey we were called back to in Salinas in March of 2012 (our home town we left 10 years ago), starting a non-profit organization that focuses on those areas, partnering with both faith-based & other organizations.  We have a long-term goal of partnering with organizations that work with at risk youth & children, as well as with churches and families.

In this journey of being "missionaries" to America, we have lived on a shoe-string.  We have spent a very full & busy year facilitating parenting courses, groups, working one-on-one with individuals, serving churches, helping with a ministry training school, etc. and have had amazingly committed financial support for Kingdom Hearts Cry Ministries from a core group of people, but that has not provided sufficient funds to live on as a family of 5!

We are about to launch two major projects, one being a project to develop adequate funding sources for our family to live on and to expand Kingdom Hearts Cry Ministries, and the other is to fund raise the needed finances for the purchase of a building in Salinas which will be the location for a house of prayer, as well as a place of community ( a place of hospitality, equipping, healing, training, modeling, community, worship, etc.).

Before we do that, we want to catch up!  Would you partner with us in raising this initial $5000?!  Every donation will be tax deductible!  Thank you so, so much!  Feel free to contact us if you want more information about what we are doing.
