We, the leaders and members of Destiny Family Center sincerely appreciate your recent contributions! 20 years from today, when this ministry is far more visibly impacting the entire world just as our dream predicts… you guys will be remembered as the pioneer ONLINE contributers.
As with anything in its foundational stages… we should honor our initial contributers for their unusual degree of foresight!
This is a biblical thing to do.
The great Apostle Paul did this very thing in the book of Philippians when he honored his pioneering contributers in front of the entire world! God allowed Paul to spend up several paragraphs of precious biblical real estate for honoring his pioneering contributers… because honoring our pioneers is a very good thing to do!
Philippians 4:15-19 As you know, you Philippians were the only ones who gave me financial help when I first brought you the Good News and then traveled on from Macedonia. No other church did this. 16Even when I was in Thessalonica you sent help more than once. 17 I don’t say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness. 18 At the moment I have all I need-and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God.19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
Can you imagine what it must have felt like for those pioneering contributers from Philippi… to hear the legendary Apostle Paul recognizing YOUR courageous sacrifices… in a letter that would be so widely distributed… and eventually included in the canon of the New Testament, of the HOLY BIBLE?
Notice the BLESSING Paul pronounced over his pioneering contributers: “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
This was a SPECIAL BLESSING to all his pioneering contributers!
So today, I just want to honor all of MY pioneering tribe members! Not only the financial pioneers, but also every volunteer and leader, and every enthusiast of what we are doing… to all the good people who do all those little things to propel this dream forward! Based upon the magnitude of our pioneering group… who can predict how large an impact we will have in the years ahead!
I am pioneering with you and you are pioneering with me… and we are pioneering for tomorrows better world!
Zechariah 4:8-10 After that, the Word of God came to me: “Zerubbabel started rebuilding this Temple and he will complete it. That will be your confirmation that God-of-the-Angel-Armies sent me to you. Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings? They’ll change their tune when they see Zerubbabel setting the last stone in place!”
