Money we receive goes to paying our basic bills (e.g. electricity, phone, internet, etc), emergency things we need (e.g. car or computer repairs), and we also save back money to print tracts and make DVDs to hand out to the lost in our area. Most church buildings and websites never talk about where the money goes, and I want to make sure everyone understands that we're not trying to buy a 65 million dollar jet, we're just trying to pay our bills so we can keep working. If our materials have helped you and your family, and the Lord God has convicted you to help us share the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ with others, consider charitably sending us something by mail:
Concerning Paypal, we request that Christians
And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
in all our work to provide our materials free as a gift.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing... And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
-1 Corinthians 13:2-13

Lorraine has also started up her market garden this year, as she is working to make that her full time business so she can get out of her full time job. Currently, she's working a full time job, a part time job on the side for extra investment money, and starting up a business selling fruits and vegetables, so she has almost no free time whatsoever. We really want to get her to a point where she can work on the market garden full time because the hours standing in a department store has really irritated the foot/leg injuries she's already sustained. If I brought in enough to fully support us, she could have already left her job to work the business full time, but that's just not possible right now. Our goal is to have her out of her job by the end of December, and we keep praying that her sales will be lucrative enough this fall to allow us to do that.
I'm still struggling with my swollen spine; the pain has subsided as I've done at-home therapy, but the healing process may take years. Normally, people have surgery for such a thing, but it is possible to heal it naturally, and so that's what we're going to continue to try and do if the Lord Jesus Christ would allow it. I'm very grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ that he has brought to us the few of you out there who have been charitable to us; otherwise, I would have to be out working a job on top of this ministry, which would have ended up making me bedridden with pain and injury in my back and neck.
I've got a to-do list of projects, some of which I'm actively working on right now. I even just released my first Bible commentary article on the Book of Acts, so I hope that's helpful to some of you. We also finally published my first full-length book last month entitled Feminism: Castrating America which is available through the Amazon store on paperback or Kindle if you want to purchase a copy, but the rough draft of the book is availabe for free via our article called "Feminism: Satan's Plan to Destroy Your Family," and you can listen to our free 20-hour audio teaching on the subject. There are some of you out there that have been writing me and making suggestions for things I should write about, but please understand that I've already got a long list of things to do, and those suggestions would come at an extremely low priority compared to what I'm work on now; you'll see what I mean when I get more articles released over the next few months.
If the Lord Jesus Christ wills that we keep working, we'll keep working, and again, to those few of you who have donated to help us out (you know who you are), thank you for your charity and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
|Donating to our ministry consists of more than just money, because we cannot share the Gospel alone. It takes huge amounts of time for me to research and write articles, work on our website, create podcasts, print out materials, pass-out materials, and numerous other projects we would like to complete, on top of teaching every Sunday at our church, my own personal studies, and having to work jobs to upkeep our home. Like I said, I run almost all this ministry by myself, and I am only one man; I can only do so much. (I would also encourage people to read our FAQ on "I want to volunteer to help this ministry, what can I do?")|
(Example: Pick your favorite topic [dinosaurs, holidays, atheism, etc], find an article on our website relating to that topic, and copy the URL link. Then go to a social media site [Google+, Twitter, Facebook, etc], and search for posts with similar topics. Comment and paste the article link into a response to share the information with others.)
You don't really need to contact us to inquire about a project; we have to borrow images from other people all the time that I use for editing, so if there is any image on our website you think you can improve so we don't run into any copyright problems in the future, send it to us; we'd love to see it. Over the years since I had this support page up, we've had many people write and talk to us about it, telling us they are going to work on things or send us their artwork, but not one person has ever actually sent us anything they've produced, so we're waiting for people to start doing things instead of just talking about doing things.
