Cornerstone Reaches Bus Fund Goal. Praise the Lord!
NOTE: The video above shows a bus very similar to the one we have voted to purchase. The video is on a 2012 model. Here are the specifications on the bus we will be purchasing (enter Stock #13137).
Great news! Yesterday, we received more than $6,000 in gifts for the "Bus Fund," which puts us over the $57,500 needed to purchase the new bus to upgrade our Transportation Ministry!
I cannot thank you enough for your generous giving to this important cause. In less than two years, you have given this very significant sum of money, and continued to faithfully give your tithes to support the ongoing work of God's church at Cornerstone. You have also continued to give very generously to the missions offering to share Christ in Missouri, across North America, and around the world. It is an honor to serve such a wonderful congregation!
Most of all, we give glory to God for His amazing provision. He truly "owns the cattle on a thousand hills," and He is able to supply all our needs as we seek to bring glory to Him. Just yesterday we had a person come to unite with our church through baptism - a person who has started riding our church bus two weeks ago. Reaching one person for Jesus is more than worth the cost of a bus! It will be exciting to see all that God has in store in the days to come.
When you look at a goal like this in the beginning - it seems impossible. But again and again, God demonstrates that when we act in faith, NOTHING is impossible for God!
The church has already voted to purchase the bus once the funds are received. In the near future, we will make arrangements to go get it and bring it home! May God bless you each one for your love of the Lord, and the work of His Kingdom.
