TO MY LEADERS AND MY EXTENDED DOWNLINE
One of my downline has told me that I should share why I am working so hard to make Pro 10.
In other words, you need to know my “WHY”.
I don’t want any of you to believe that I just want to be more important or to have more money to spend on some materialistic thing like a summer home or a boat or any number of other such things. My WHY is much more than materialism.
First of all, you need to know that I was adopted as a baby and because of that I have always had a soft spot in my heart for orphans, especially small children. Many years ago, Audine & I began a ministry called The Healing Word Ministry, Inc. It was originally started with money that I received from many opportunities to speak for the Lord Jesus Christ. It was only about 8 years ago that we finally began using the money, which had been building over the years, for support of missionaries. We started with one couple in Romania and now have 3 others we support who work with children, one in Costa Rico and one couple in Tanzania and one couple working in Florida with an organization that teaches missionaries the art of storytelling of the gospel. It is the couple in Tanzania that really touched my heart. We have known them for about 5 years but it was only a year or two ago that I found out about their ministry. They run two small orphanages in Tanzania. There are 2.7 million orphan children in that country and many are daily being kidnapped and sold as sex slaves in Europe. To put this in perspective, there are 2.3 million people in Houston, TX. This couple is trying to raise enough money for a facility that will have the capacity to house all the orphans in Tanzania. That amount is $1.2 million. It is a well planned undertaking but not easily established because of the cost. The Healing Word Ministry is working to send as much as possible to them for this great cause. My goal is to use what I make in Lifevantage and my Health & Wellness Consulting business to help the work in Tanzania. The more I derive from my work here, the more I can send to the work in Tanzania. This is the reason I have such a drive to reach Pro 7. It will allow me to send more to Tanzania and to help with the work of protecting the orphans there. I believe that the Lord is going to help Audine & I reach our WHY. It may not be all of the money the couple in Tanzania needs, but it will be the right amount for The Healing Word Ministry to assist in the work there, and even have some left over for our other missionaries.
And speaking of WHY’s, it is very important for you to know your own WHY. I want to encourage you that during the month of December, to give this a lot of thought and decide what your WHY is. It needs to be important enough to you that it will keep you working to bring it about. Know this, the Lord sees your heart and He will help you in reaching your WHY. Please pray for insight for yourself so you can determine your WHY. You can then begin the New Year with your goal as your guide, and success will be within your reach.
Please share this with your downline and know that we are praying for each of you to be successful in your endeavors.
