Here's OUR reality:
We have to shell out over £1000 a month on licenses, software, web space etc just to keep the whole thing running. This is not even met by current monthly giving and it is a struggle. But we live by faith and the LORD provides. Yet money doesn't just rain down from heaven, there's every chance that YOU may be part of HIS solution. This is why we are hoping that we attract sufficient funds through monthly subscriptions to at least pay for the ongoing costs, with perhaps some left over to provide some sort of income.
Here's YOUR reality.
If you are from the 'developing' world, or are in ministry relying on the kindness of others, or are seriously short of funds, then by all means we are delighted to give you a FREE BASIC SUBSCRIPTION
You may already be one of those folk supporting us (not just financially). If this is you then we are happy to give you a free subscription, unless the LORD is telling you to sow into our ministry. Either way is fine, no guilt or shame.
You may be someone who is fed up of ministries moaning for funds, or you may just be dipping your toe in 'Hebraic waters'. Either way, again it is up to your conscience, no guilt and shame if you choose the FREE option.
Here's GOD's reality.
The very first church ...
All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.(ACTS 4:32-35)
