The following is a review of the year 2021 with Love For His People ministry, located in the Charlotte, NC area. Through the direction, provision, and grace of our Lord Jesus, I share this report with you and contributors of the ministry.
Established in April 2010, we will now have completed 12 years as of April 2022.
Overall, the ministry sustained it’s support for outreach, impact, and social media for Israel and the USA, with a total income of $25,118.03. Expenses matched the income, with no debt or payables. We do not have a staff with payroll expenses. (See financial report below).
Our support for families and organizations in Israel was maintained, with a slight drop in financial support from the previous year.
One major change in our work was the end of contribution processing for India and Pakistan pastors. We felt the Lord wanted us to more fully concentrate on Israel.
Four trips to Israel which had been planned for the year were again canceled due to the shutdowns. Flights were either refunded or given certificates for 2022 flights. We also have a $2000 hostel credit for stay in Jerusalem, to be used by the end of the year.
Steve’s contract services work at previous ministries had been reduced in 2021, now working only one day a week at CMM (Jorge and Anna Parrot). Thus the income in that income stream had dropped over $12,000 from the previous year.
In 2021 two books were published. His Plan. His Way and Trust Me Still?
Our regular Constant Contact email recipients number 352, with an average of 197 receiving my monthly messages. About 41% (122) read the emails, which in standard numbers is very good.
Our involvement with aliyah (immigration to Israel) is growing, as we continue to connect further with our Messianic Jewish contacts in Israel and local churches and ministries who are also supporting Israel.
We give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has called, established, and continues to bring increase for the work He has placed in our hearts and our hands.
Thank you for being with us, with your friendship, encouragement, and ongoing support.
