Ugandan Messianic Ministry Support
There is a Messianic Synagogue, one of three, situated in a remote part of Uganda. They have contacted me through my ministry, messianicmoment.com, and last year I sent them copies of the three books I have written, as well as a few Messianic Bibles. The shipping cost alone was over $100 USD.
They are now requesting 9 prayer shawls, 4 more Bibles and 6 more copies of each of my three books, as they find them very useful in their Torah studies.
I am asking for help to do this, as the cost will about $650 USD. This includes the approximated cost of shipping.
Any funds that are left over I will supplement from my own pocket to make sure every penny is spent sending these Messianic Believers study aids.
If I can get only 30 or 40 people to send $15 or $20 dollars, then we will be successful. I looked up the average Ugandan rural monthly income, and it is 303,000 Ugandan shillings, which is only about $80.00 USD.
Truthfully, how much do we spend each month on our cell phone each month? On cable TV? Or just buying popcorn and a large soda at the movies? Isn't it more worthwhile than a phone bill or popcorn to be able to help these people, who don't even have regular Internet service, let alone a computer, to know the Lord better?
On behalf of my Ugandan friends, I thank you for taking the time to read this. PLEASE! Ask the Lord what he would do, what he wants YOU to do, and listen to your heart. I am sure it is saying, "Ah, what's the problem? If I send Steve a "Jackson" to help these people, that won't drain my 401K."
Remember: God blesses us so that we can bless others.
I have collected a little under $200 (after fees) and this will be enough, maybe, to pay just for the cost of mailing items to the people in Uganda.
I have already decided to use my own funds to purchase the books I have written, which they requested and use for Bible study, but we still need another $200 or more to buy prayer shawls and Messianic Bibles for them.
PLEASE! This is my last update and last request before this campaign is over, which will be in just a week or two, so if you haven't donated and have been thinking about it, stop thinking and do. Send the link to my Gofundme site to your family and friends and give them a chance to bless these people, which will result in their being blessed, as well.
Our God is a God of action, not sitting around and thinking about doing, so (as they say)... just do it.
What will $10 mean to you, really? But to these poor, rural Ugandans, it means about 3.6 Million Ugandan Shillings, so please send something.
Thank you for all your help, already.
