When we got back from Guatemala, from the missions field, we came only with our computers and our clothes. We didn´t have a job or any money. In the first months back in after July 2010, we gladly accepted invitations to eat from members of our church. We were eating!

Slowly, we were establishing ourselves here in the United States. God opened the door for my wife to re-start her engineering career, while I was teaching at our church´s school. Finances were short at the school, so eventually, they stopped paying me. We were scraping by month by month on Dianna´s part time salary.

We were giving — far more than the tithe. We just got back our church´s report of giving for tax purposes. And the amount we had given happened to be the “tithe” of Dianna´s salary upgrade as she was taken on as a full-time employee. God provided us blessing of salary and health insurance, and it seemed to correlate to our giving! Now I wish we had given more. God blessed us in return for what we gave.

  7. Thanks so much for liking my post! I really appreciate the boost, being new to the blogging world:) Congrats on the founding of your organization. Like the use of the mustard seed. Reviews also a good touch. I often think too many Christian organizations do the world a disservice by holing up in their own little corners and ignoring the bigger picture. In the world, just not of it, right?;) All the best.

  15. The mustard seed amidst many

    Once there was an insignificant seed, amidst thorns and verdant
    trees. I wonder, Lord will I ever be known, by at least one; even as a cut-down Christmas tree is uplifted during the holiday?

    Yes, you will be known by me, I AM the one.

  16. Thank you for joining Freedomborn, it is appreciated and yes God’s work done in God’s way never lacks His supply.

  17. I first want to thank you for choosing to follow my blog. May it always speak truth to your heart. I do know how faithful our God is to provide when we are about the ministry He has called us to. He has provided for us for over 40 years in a camp ministry to teens and children without us having to go in debt or charge a child for attending. God will provide for His work for His glory. Thank you for posting and encouraging blog.
