Our first 100 days of 2016 were filled to the brim! As many of you know, we’ve been on an intense journey of trying to reach the goal of 100% of our financial ministry budget during the first 100 days of 2016. April 9th marked the 100th day. Unfortunately, we didn’t reach our goal of 100%. Below outlines the numbers.
January 1, 2016 ministry budget level 59%
Letters Sent (requesting an appointment or asking for others to join our team) 45 in addition to the 281 sent with our newsletter
Appointments (met with families and individuals) 34
Speaking Engagements (had the privilege to share to a large group) 7
New Partners (Hooray! New financial partners to join our team) 9
Partners to rejoin our team 1
Partners who have increased their partnership support 5
One-time financial gifts 9
Partners who have left our team 4
April 9, 2016 ministry budget level 76%
What now? Although we are not at 100% doesn’t mean we give up. We feel we have exhausted our circle of friends, family and acquaintances. We are seeking friends and family who would like to be advocates on our behalf, presenting us and our ministry with Wycliffe to their friends and family.
