“We want to partner with you”, said our friend as we sat around his dining room table. “We don’t have much to give, but we want to help send you.” If jaw-dropping were an emotion, it would barely adequately describe our emotional response to these types of conversations the last few months. So many friends and acquaintances have asked to learn more about Mission Aviation Fellowship so they can partner with us to relieve spiritual poverty and physical suffering in largely neglected communities around the world. It is this dedication of the global body of Christ that causes these jaw-dropping moments for us. It is the selfless sacrifice of those sending and those being sent that causes us to stand back in awe and realize, “God alone has done this thing of creating a globally aware and concerned network that wants to DO SOMETHING about being the hands and feet of Christ.”
Someday, friends, we will stand together with you at the feet of the Risen Lamb Jesus Christ. With wide eyes and silent lips we will look around and hear every creature sing, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever!" Revelation 5:13. And in that moment, perhaps you will be standing by someone who is singing His radiance only because God gave you the grace, the means, and the determination to proclaim His glory until the last one has heard!
We are going to MAF headquarters in Idaho January-February where we will get our country assignment and formally switch from Proclaim to MAF. We are currently at 75% of our MAF monthly financial. If you have considered partnering financially, we encourage you to do so this month so that we can be as close to fully funded by January as possible. You can do this by giving to Proclaim at Proclaim Danforth Donor Form and we will let you know how to switch to MAF in the coming months.
