Now, are you rich according to the bible and the figures above? Are you more wealthy than 80% of the world and make more than $10 per day? Let’s look at specific income examples. Do you make $35,000 per year? If so, you are in the wealthiest 4.6% of people in the world and there are 6,296,041,822 (more than 6.2 billion) people less wealthy than you. You are 45 times wealthier than a billion people. (A billion people earn less than $762 a year). Maybe you make $20,000 per year? If so, you are in the wealthiest 10.9% of people in the world and there are 5,879,728,301 (more than 5.8 billion) people less wealthy than you. You are 26 times wealthier than a billion people. Maybe you make about $10,000 per year? If so, you are in the wealthiest 19.9% of people in the world and there are 5,284,593,406 (more than 5.2 billion) people less wealthy than you. You are 13 times wealthier than a billion people.
Now, read James 5:1-6 and see the judgement on the “rich” when they don’t help the poor. Then read Matthew 25 and see that we get judged on how we help the hungry, the thirsty, the homeless, etc. EVERY word in that chapter was spoken by Jesus. OK, now on to our program and how you can help. The note below is from brother Wilson, our leader in India.
Donate a Goat below and help to sustain a village church planter’s family.
“Yesterday I went for village ministry. The church planters shared with me that they have no income to support their kids education, household expenses, medical and other expenses because they are reaching unreached in remote villages.( In India a church planter is considered to be holy person who must be dedicated only to church and church work, the community will not accept the church planter to be involved with common jobs/works so the church planters are suffering a lot because they are not accepted if they get a job and they can not run their family with the little amount that they get from church) When I was moving from one village to another village I saw a herd of goats coming from another direction. When I saw them i remembered my childhood where I was a Shepard taking care of goats to meet my needs if only the church planters have goats like I did when I was a kid they could take care of their own expenses.
So I spoke to the Shepard who was taking care of those goats he told me that he started out with 4 goats four years ago and now he has 50 goats and earns $3000 per annum now. If we can buy a goat we can support a church planters family life long and help them to take care of their medical expenses and kids education. As it is a one time investment the income only increases. Initially one goat will help only one church planter as the number of goats increases we can help many church planters. I even spoke to a church member regarding this matter and he is willing to help us take care of the goats if we buy.
How it works —
Like this they grow but we can sell additional goats with that money we can support church planters.
One goat cost $100 usd, we want to start with 5 goats so we need $500 usd.
In advance thank you for supporting this great kingdom work.
Church planters support starts in 9 months after buying a goat”
