Today to recognize our partners, we want to share a glimpse of just one of our Partner newsletter sent last month.
Do we have something amazing to share with you this month! Rather than explain, I prefer just sharing the email conversation we had with our Spanish Ministers:
Hello Beautiful ladies,
I have so much to share but I am writing as our HH leads. Yes Tara, I was able to share how RBG was able to give a donation to Vicmary, who has formed a group called Pearls of Grace in Venezuela, so she can purchase and distribute food and medicine to women and children in her group. But, what I wanted to share with You and Erin, is about Venezuela and tithing.
When Vero from RBG asked if Vicmary can start her own FB page using RMI and RBG, I told her that us branching out to form our own ministries is a desire of Erin's heart, so I gave her my blessing. I also told her that Pearls of Grace was branched from RBG so she, Veronica, would be diligent by following their publications and activities closely so they continue to follow the principles from RMI.
Vero then shared with me her desire to start donating and helping the group in Venezuela because of the need. I have shared a bit about this with all of you. When I SG, the first thing He shared with me was the importance of these women tithing. The problem was that there was NO way of these women to send any kind of money out of the country, the government forbids it. So I gave it to HIM and ask Him to make a way. Many weeks went by and Vero said the there would be a way to send money to Venezuela through Colombia and that Vicmary would take a 7-hour trip to cross the border, receive the money, purchase food and medicine in Colombia and then travel back to her home. It was an extremely long journey, but He provided. Not only did he provide for food and medicine, but He also made a way for women to tithe.
So the women can send money to banks within the country, so Vicmary is able to receive the tithe. Then Vero is able to remove the tithe from the money she is sending to them and then Vero can send the tithe for them. I was really excited because I knew this would be a breakthrough for the women in Venezuela. Now bear in mind Vero and I SG for His guidance. He confirmed their tithes must go to RMI and all donations for Venezuela, Vero is also tithing to RMI. She is very clear with the group in Venezuela the importance of this, especially in their need. They have contemplated tithing and asked Vero how they would survive, but she said very firmly HE WILL PROVIDE. There is so much that Vero is guiding them in this area of finances and we are working together to make sure they have a clear understanding of obedience.
I don't know how long we will be able to do this because the borders are closing and it is getting a bit dangerous, but we both are letting HIM lead.
So, below Tara, you will see that RBG will be sending the Venezuelan tithe in one donation but in the notes will be the name, email and amount of the ones that tithed. Ladies, the amount is not much, but like I told Vero, it doesn't matter if it is a quarter, the importance is to be obedient to our HH. Would it be possible to send them an email confirmation of their tithe so they know it was received?
Thank you again for all your support and love.
Wow! Ana, Vero, this is amazing!!!!!! I'm so excited and as you know, how much is given is not important, a tithe is a tithe!! Whoo Hoo!!
With just happened is the widow's mite (Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4) and such a testimony to all of us.
I read this just before I left yesterday, talked it over with Tara excitedly, and we agreed that first, we need to use this for the partner newsletter in March and that Venezuela, Vicmary's Pearls of Grace, is where we want to invest our funds for February!
Thanks to your ongoing support to RMI, we've been able to water and plant many RMI Ministries (listed at the bottom of this page), but only after we help support an outside ministry or mission with our tithe. We'd like to keep you updated on these each month!
Lota, can you believe how God has used all those years of sowing but seeing nothing happening—and now the Spanish ministry is in the forefront and leading the way in branching out with new ministries I've envisioned and longed for—for years?!?!?
THANK YOU, LORD!
Next Thursday we will share Venezuela's Pearls of Grace Part 2 that you will not want to miss!!
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Matthew 6:19–21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
