Help Us Help Others
As many of you know, YWAM and its workers are supported by the generous gifts of our friends & family. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in helping the poor and needy and training up the next generation missionaries without leaving your home.
Over the years we have been so amazed by peoples generosity and the provision that we have experienced. We are only able to do what we do, because of your generosity.
Over the next couple of months we have some Major financial outgoings that we ask that you consider being part of.
Micah. Our adopted son is in need of a surgery. He desparatly needs his Adaenoids & Tonsils removed and tubes in his ears. We do have some health insurance, but with the deductables, medicine and other costs, we are needing to pay over $1000 to make this happen. We definately see the adoption as not only adding to our family, but as an integral part of our family mission.
Also this month we are needing to renew our Mexican FM3 visa. This is the paperwork that allows us to live and work in Mexico. The cost for this is $110 per person, so we are needing to raise $660 to keep us legal in Mexico.
Please consider helping us with our current financial needs. Your gift is appreciated however large or small.
You can find out details of how to give HERE: http://thekemps.weebly.com/join.html
We lead a very interesting life here in Mexico. Constantly relying on God and other peoples generosity to provide for our families needs. I have a principle though. If i am expecting other people to help with my families needs, then i need to be over generous and be constantly looking to help other peoples needs.
This is a great principle, until you are challenged to give away something like YOUR CAR... Our trusty black van has been an awesome machine since we first moved here in 2006. Unfortunatly it only has 7 seats, so we have outgrown it. When we adopted the new kids, we were really blessed with some money that enabled us to buy an even bigger van to fit the whole tribe. The only problem with the big van is the fuel costs. We were paying over $15 per day in Gas, just to get the kids to school. Our plan was to sell the black van, and with the money buy a small runaround that would be cheap on gas.
So when we are presented with someone elses need for a car, we realised we could have the answer. This would be inconvienient for us, and would mean sacrificing the money from the sale of the van, but in the end we decided it was the right thing to do. We handed over the keys and thanked God for his provision.
Just a few days after we had given the keys away, one of my collegues came up to me, not knowing we had given our van away, asking me if we wanted a minivan. His family were leaving the country and wanted to bless someone else with the car. We were BLOWN AWAY. Its perfect for what we want. Its cheap to run, Jacob can learn to drive in it (SCARRY) and it was Free.
Just See what can happen when you are trusting god for your Provision...
