Before we even began asking, I was given courage as I saw the Lord moving. It started with a small group of men who said, we want to give over and above our normal giving – in response to this shift in pricing. It reminds me of Joshua, when the people said
be strong and courageous – we are with you.
I was given heart and a bit more courage to surrender and believe that God was revealing himself through these families who committed to walk with us in this way.
Just as we were ready to announce our initiative to the broader Wellspring family, in a way that only God could ordain,Larry had a visit planned with a Battle alumnus passing through Atlanta. This brother shared with Larry that he had felt led to partner with us in a $75,000 gift. He didn’t know that we had been praying for God to raise a $75,000 lead gift in this initiative.
