Guess What!

Guess what! Go ahead and guess! Wrong! (I’m assuming. Maybe you’re a very good guesser. I dunno.) Oh, I’ll just tell you. Do you remember the funding requests for twelve motorcycles that were denied, for quota reasons, for a dozen hard working indigenous pastors in Western Honduras? And do you remember how Sowers4Pastors said, “Hey, these men have already done their part in raising a deposit. We’re going to step out on faith and trust that God will provide a way”? God is providing a way! Nine of the twelve applications have now been approved for funding! (Yes, that’s a lot of exclamation points in one paragraph. But it’s sooooo EXCITING!)

In case you need a refresher course, here’s the original blogpost concerning the need for funding for these motorcycles. Go back and read the bios of some of the applicants to understand why this news is worthy of some serious over-punctuation and enthusiasm!

Please note that three of the pastors are still in need of funding for their motorcycles. If you haven’t already, please consider donating to this worthy cause. If you have already donated, thank you very much!

Allen would like to thank EVERYBODY involved in this funding approval. That includes the Christian Motorcyclists Association, Missionary Ventures, and The Foundation for Missions, and everyone who prayed about our funding dilemma. Did we forget anyone? Because Allen really doesn’t want to forget anyone. So, if someone has been left out, it was completely unintentional. Know that you are thanked and your efforts are truly appreciated.

In case a mere “thank you” is inadequate, let’s try saying it in different languages! Gracias. Merci. Grazie, Domo Arigato. Do jeh. Danke. Khop Khun Mak Kha. Spasiba. Takk. Mahalo. Toda. Efharisto. There. Do you sense to depth and sincerity behind the expressions of gratitude? Just in case you’re not feeling the love, I’ll throw in a little pig latin. Ankthay ouyay!

Because of your gift, thousands of people in remote villages will be able to hear the Gospel. Thank you, Lord! (It wouldn’t do to forget to thank Him!)
