||How Does It Happen?
Check back in the March news, published mid-March, and you will find that Geoffrey mentioned in his letter that a current need was to pay overdue water bills of just under 4 million Ugandan shillings. We didn't promote this to you as a cause. It was just something that Geoffrey mentioned.
Within days one supporter had donated $500. That person has since been thanked directly by Geoffrey. Then, as the end of the month - and Easter - approached, Ron sent a further $600 from his can and bottle collecting hobby. His work has also been recognised in a personal letter from Geoffrey. So, the Treasurer looked in the account and found other amounts had appeared through donations of various sizes from a range of faithful supporters. They totalled just over $400.
On March 31st, two days before Good Friday, a total of AUD1544.75 was transferred to the RYDA account. After Easter Geoffrey found that there was enough to pay the overdue 4 million shillings and have a little change!
How does it happen?
... The water bills were only mentioned in passing. There was no focussed fund raising. You weren't set a target. But what was needed and a bit more appeared within two weeks of being mentioned.
How does it happen?
...Check Geoffrey's letter again. In the sentence immediately before the mention of the water bills Geoffrey wrote:
Blessed are those who trust in HIM.
Could that be how it happens?
