A Letter To Special Friends
An appeal to carry the vision of transforming families forward
Since I received advice from some of my mentors to pursue this effort of receiving assistance from existing home educating families, it took me many days in earnest prayer before I got clarity. Hence you are receiving this appeal. I came to realise that the work of Dynamis has affected, and will continue to affect many worried families and innocent children. As with all ventures I understand that one path leads to personal gain and another purely to serving the needs of people. I chose the latter, albeit the more difficult one, but since I'm single it makes it a little easier to dedicate myself to the needs of others.
I further came to realize that I cannot meet the needs of others if my needs are not fully met. By receiving financial and prayer support from others who share the requirements I am further able to represent many others with the same desire to promote a more value-based educational system in our country. It will be through our combined, dedicated effort in pursuing a quality education for our children that we can also reach out to Government in the belief that they will change their attitude towards the importance of families in our nation.
My purpose with this appeal is to put all that God and people invested in me to good use for others. We all know and agree that to make a real difference in the lives of people is not a one-woman job, but requires focused teamwork. It is for this reason that I find the need to surround myself with like-minded people who can help in different ways. My humble request is that you would consider teaming up with me and giving yourself to a cause that adds value to the lives of others.
I am facing the reality that to keep up with my travels to different communities scattered throughout the country, and to sustain the ministry I believe God has called me to, has become too much to bear alone. I have a critical need to operate from a secure base. Clarens is positioned centrally, is a fairly affordable place to stay and travel from, and also offers much needed tranquillity that is conducive to writing more material.
Direct expenses to the sustainability of Dynamis continue to be travelling, communication and printing. Furthermore, the need for a qualified assistant has become evident. In ensuring that the day-to-day running costs of this ministry are covered, it will also afford me the opportunity to conduct seminars and consultations in lower socio-economic areas where affordability is always a concern.
I am appealing to you to consider becoming not only a prayer partner in this ministry, but also to offer financial support on either a once-off or monthly basis. In asking for your support I am hesitant to place a specific amount on paper, but I am convinced that your obedience to the Spirit of God will be more than sufficient.
Thank you in advance for your support and prayers to the work of Dynamis, and in choosing to partner yourself with this ministry.
