How do I go about trying to raise funds?
A good place to start is to tell people about your plans. If you don’t talk about it, then others may miss out on the opportunity to bless you.
- Pray - amazingly, this is often the last thing people do! Many people over the years have been amazed to see how the funds have come in, and largely, it’s because they’ve prayed and had others praying with them. We have a great provider and should never underestimate his generosity.
- Personal sacrifice - this will, and should, cost you personally. Do you have any savings? Can you make some sacrifices to help raise the money you will need?
- Partnership - involve your church, invite friends and family to partner with you, contact trusts or local businesses, think creatively abour sponsored events... Whatever route you choose, you will need a support team of pray-ers and givers behind you.
