Good day all,
I “pirated” the State of the Union here! I hope it is not too cheesy. Anyway, I wanted to take a moment to give a financial update of the DuBoses in Peru. We made a heavy push for year end giving and wanted to talk about the results.
As kind of a catch up on a year plus living abroad, we moved to Peru in October 2016 and arrived to Cusco the last day of January 2017. During that brief time in Peru, we lost several supporters who had committed to giving and had begun giving even before we left for Peru. Also, several families who committed to giving never began giving or could not fulfill their commitment. Although we understood everyone’s unique circumstances, it was tough on us emotionally as we were trying to settle in to our new home and life. We were prepared financially to have partners come and go and were fortunate to support raise over 100% of our yearly budget and have a healthy support account for times like this.
On a brighter side, we raised 14% of our yearly budget in December. This included year end giving, one time gifts, increased monthly gifts, and new financial partners. God is good all the time! Amen! After many speaking engagements in the USA, we were able to obtain several financial partners that will sustain us going forward. Again, God is good!
With that said, 2018 is set to be a great year for the DuBoses in Peru. Both from a Spiritual and a financial perspective. Again, we can not do this without each and every one of you. Our prayer partners. Our finacial partners. Our church partners. Every single person is a key component in God’s mission for our family in Cusco. We are honored to serve here.
Please know that it is never too late to partner with our family in prayer, in petition or from a financial aspect. If you would like to financially partner, you can click on the link below.
Lastly and most importantly. Please let me know how we can be praying for you . It is our pleasure.
In His name,
Josh and Cindy
