Proclamation! and the cattle on a thousand hills
About three months ago one of the elders at our church deeply moved us by asking if he and his wife could come to our home and pray for us and for Life Assurance Ministries.
They asked how they could pray for us, and we told them we have an ongoing struggle with funding the production of Proclamation!. God has been faithful to provide what we have needed for the past eleven years, and we thank Him. At the same time, the economy has affected Life Assurance Ministries.
Our elder prayed that God would provide the funds we need for the continued production of Proclamation!, and in his prayer he said, “We know that You own the cattle on a thousand hills [Ps. 50:10]; could You please sell a couple of them for us?”
Money is not a problem for God, and He provides it by means of human generosity. We thank Him for those who already support this ministry, both long-time supporters and new ones. We also pray that He will impress those whom He knows need to give.
Should we keep printing quarterly issues?
We are at a point of decision regarding the future means of publishing the magazine. We will continue to publish it online, of course, but we may have to limit the printed version to one or two issues per year if funds do not come in to maintain our quarterly printing.
Ironically, this crisis in funding coincides with increasing requests for new subscriptions. More people are asking to receive the magazine than ever before, and we know the printed version is useful in many ways the online version cannot be.
We are appealing to you, our readers, to become partners with us in this ministry if you are not already. Ask God to show you His will regarding your support of Proclamation! And please pray that He will protect and provide for all of us and all of those whom He is calling out of deception.
We are trusting God with this ministry. Those cattle are His—and so are we, and the harvest is plentiful. This is His word to us:
“Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God” (2 Cor. 9:10-11). †
