In Paul's letters we see over and over again his thankfulness to people. They come from all walks of life too - men, women, married, single, families, pastors, business people, politicians, lawyers, doctors, slaves, slave owners, rich, poor, young, old, Jews and Gentiles. Without this team the church would not have grown the way it did in Paul's day. That is why he can confidently say in Philippians 4:17, "Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to YOUR credit." Paul is recognizing that apart from this eclectic group of people his ministry of planting churches would not be possible.
We realize this too, as we are seeing this type of team being built up around us. We recognize, as Paul did, that there is no way that we can do this work apart from this happening. A team that will give to us financially, pray for us, and work alongside us in the trenches of ministry. We are thankful for those God has already given and want to invite you to be a part of this team with them.
Soli Deo Gloria,
