My friend Katherine Gould has spent the last few years spreading God’s love in Asia. Her primary focus has been in China. It takes a great deal of commitment to leave the comfort and familiarity of home (for Katherine, that’s Texas) to minister and teach in a foreign culture. Her travels have also taken her to the Philippines and to Cambodia. Below is a letter I received this week. I don’t know who might be reading this who could possibly send her some help, but I pray that someone can.
We love you Katherine, keep up the great work!
I want to thank you once again for all you have done to support my desire and calling to do ministry in China and all across Asia. It has truly been a blessing to witness and participate in all God is doing in China and in many different places. I am extremely thankful for every single opportunity and that you have been the ones who have made it possible. I am also thankful for the teaching opportunities I was presented with which made it possible to participate in several ministries in the Philippines and now with our amazing street kids in Cambodia. I am constantly humbled and amazed as I look at what God has allowed me to do.
I am in serious need of more financial support to fulfill my commitment. I was very blessed and thankful to be able to pay my rent last month, but am still in need of more support to pay my bills this month and fulfill commitments over the next few months. I honestly do not know how all of my bills are going to get paid this month. I am about to have to renew my insurance next week, but do not have what I need for that. I am still in need of about $5,000 total, with a current need of $500 in the next week or so.
If you can once again or for the first time contribute any amount, or know of someone who would be interested in supporting our work, I would appreciate it more than I can tell! Fund raising is definitely a humbling experience, but I know that is what God has and continues to call me to, and I want to be faithful.
If you or someone you know is able to contribute, please let me know asap so I can know what to expect. Thanks again!!
Seriously, you have blessed me more than I can express by your generosity and willingness to support the work in China and throughout Asia. I thank our Father for each one of you and your partnership, and pray He is blessing you richly as you serve in His Kingdom~
