Hello, 35!

35%One blessing so far this year is that we’ve reached 35% and the momentum is building! The Lord has also been opening up some interesting doors for us to continue sharing our story and building our team.

This coming weekend we will give the message at the Saturday night and Sunday morning services at my (P’s) home church, NorthRock Foursquare Church in Thornton! Pastor Jeremy has been doing a series on what it means to be “All In” in your faith and has asked us to share our testimony of this past year to close out the series. We are honored and excited! We know God has something wonderful planned for this weekend and we can’t wait to be a part of it! If you’d like to come and hear us, the service times are Saturday, 6pm, and Sunday, 9am and 11:oo am. Click here for more information.

Treading Softly

As we’ve been having these meetings, I’ve been consistently reminded of a passage in the devotional, Jesus Calling. It says, “Learn to listen to Me even while you are listening to other people. As they open their souls to your scrutiny, you are on holy ground.” This has spoken to me over the past few months. The idea that people’s souls are holy ground is so stirringly beautiful and is a poignant reminder to always tread softly when welcomed in. It is an absolute privilege to not only get to share our hearts and calling with others but to be privy to theirs. In these times we’ve experienced the sweetness of the Holy Spirit as He unites us and calls us each to something beyond ourselves.

The Moores’ Monthly Support Needs

Here’s a description of what our monthly support needs include and how they breakdown percentage-wise…

SALARY  Covers living expenses. This includes education costs for the girls, food, clothing (as needed), household items, utilities, cell phone, deductibles, gifts, vacation, and most importantly-giving.

INSURANCE  This covers our family’s medical insurance. It also includes emergency evacuation insurance for natural disasters, political unrest and getting somewhere with better medical care.

TRAVEL  Each month we save some money so that it will accumulate and be used for travel between the US and Africa for home assignment.

TAXES   Selling everything we own and moving to another country, check. Spending our lives following the Lord and investing in His kingdom, check. Still having the wonderful “opportunity” to pay taxes, priceless.

HOUSING  This will cover the rent for our apartment whether overseas or on home assignment in the US.

SUPPORT SERVICES  We pay a portion of our support to the SIM mission offices in the US and on the field to support their operation which serves to support our ministries in Kenya.

MINISTRY  These are funds used for ministry related expenses, such as printed materials for Cell Trainings, prayer letter expenses, equipment supply and maintenance, etc.

RETIREMENT  SIM is helping us to plan for the future by putting a portion of our support into a retirement account.

We are currently at 16% of this goal. If you would like to contribute to this, please click here.
