When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low and the debts are high;
And you want to smile but you have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit--
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are;
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.
So many of you have kept up with Gil's Hills over the years, seeing God perform one miracle after another. Miracles ranging from things pertaining to the building and grounds, vehicles, food and other supplies, spiritual and physical healings, and of course, finances. God, through His grace, has brought us to the point where we are convinced that depending on Him is the only way to go. That is why we are no longer receiving any state, federal or local grants. In that dependence and commitment to Him, He has raised up faithful supporters like you. He has given you the vision and commitment to help keep things going according to His plan.
Since the first of June we have been waiting to see what God was going to do in the financial area of His ministry. In May, just when things seemed extremely bleak, God used a faithful friend who sent a large gift, getting us through the month. As in the past, several of our prayer partners have suggested that we need to tell the people and the churches how Gil's Hills is doing financially because they are the ones He is using to keep the ministry going. One again, I am convinced that now is the time to share the financial picture, year to date:
LET THE RECORD SPEAK:
Income to date: $71,341.00
Needless to say, there is nothing left. When I was diagnosed with ALS, I refused to quit. Financial security is nice I guess, but being wrapped in my Father's arms is much better.
"It's when things go wrong that you must not quit."
"My God shall supply all of you needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
Thanks so much for the love and support you have shown to the King's Kids.
