Asking for Help

posted Apr 20, 2014, 10:27 PM by Julie Lawson
Asking for help is a difficult thing for most of us. We live in a culture where self-sufficiency is valued and needing others is seen as a sign of weakness. But we all know that we have a drive to connect with others, most of us feel great when we are able to help others, and community is praised in the Bible. 

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
                            - Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. 
                                                                                          - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)

So now I humble my pride and I ask for your help. I can not venture off this continent into the unknown without the support of your prayers. I am also asking for financial support for this mission trip - find out how to give on the Donate page. I will be thrilled with any amount you can give, and will most of all treasure the prayers that you offer. Thank you for the blessing of being there to spur me on, and picking me up when I fall.
