Send the Hares to Cameroon, Give by Dec. 1st!

“And how are they to preach unless they are sent?” – Romans 10:15

Our hearts abound with thankfulness to the Lord for those of you who have invested in sending us off to Cameroon and yet…we are still in Louisville. While we have lists of answered prayers, we still have yet to hit 100% of our budget. Our prayer is to reach 100% of our budget needs by Dec 1st so that we can begin linguistics study in January.

Specifically, we need to raise about $583 (updated 11/22) more a month and about $19,675 (updated 11/22) in one-time gifts in order to be released by our agency to start linguistics training. We would need to have this money by Dec 1st. So, with the hopes that the following realities may be God’s means to compel you to invest in our ministry, we want to remind you that your giving could…

1. Create Another “Kimyal” Celebration

How beautiful are the feet of those who went to the Kimyal peoples and preached the Gospel to them. And equally how beautiful are the hands that gave so that missionaries could be sent. The supporters that sent the translators overseas are, in part, the reason that the Kimyal people are worshipping Jesus. It is not “less spiritual” to give to the cause of missions than it is to go into missions. We are all the same body working towards the same goal. Will you send us so that in 30 years we can be singing and dancing with another tribe as they receive the Bible?
Your giving could also…

2. Create Worshippers
And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9-10

People from every language will be worshipping Jesus, but how are they to worship unless they believe? And how are they to believe without hearing the Gospel? And how are they to hear it without someone preaching? And how can there be preachers unless we are sent? Missions is the means by which Revelation 5 will be made possible. Will you send us to Cameroon so that when you get to Heaven, you can look to your left and see someone from Cameroon praising Jesus?

And your giving could…

3. Save Souls from Hell

Hell is real. Today, in Cameroon, people are dying. And, to those who do not know Christ, they will be judged and then destroyed in Hell forever. Many will be thrown into the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. Many will go away into eternal punishment, under the wrath and vengeance of God. And this suffering will never end (Heb 9:27, Matt 10:28, Rev 21:8, Matt 25:41-46, Rom 12:19).

And what can save people from this misery? The Gospel. Missions. So, again we ask you –will you send us out so that we can share this Gospel and give people the chance to escape this fate?

Your giving could also…

4. Loosen your Grip on this World
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:19-21
What you invest in, you treasure. What you buy, you maintain. Giving to the cause of missions automatically directs your heart to care about where your money is going…Bible translation, Gospel preaching, and the lost. Do you want to be freed up from striving to maintain your possessions that keep breaking? “The word of the Lord remains forever” (1 Peter 1:25). Will you invest in our ministry so that your heart will be more inclined to treasure the eternal Word of God and missions?

Further, your giving could…

5. Inspire Many More to go into Missions

We have been praying that the Lord would provide for us quickly so that many others would see how the Lord provided for us and would know that the Lord could also provide for them. Many are intimidated to go into missions because the idea of support raising makes them sick and nervous. Contrarily, we want people to look at our example and say, “Well, the Lord provided for the Hare’s so he can provide for us.” Will you give to our ministry so that many will remember the Lord’s provision for us and then go into missions themselves?

So, this is the end of our plea. If you feel led to give, we ask that you do so by December 1st. Our greatest need is monthly supporters. We have people supporting us anywhere from $5-$200 a month so don’t be shy! CLICK HERE for the giving link please let us know if you have any questions.

“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for. 
– C.H. Spurgeon.
