Instead of receiving needs each month and then trying to discern what needs to give to, and how much to send specifically to each need, thereby feeding dependability and risking the chance of unnecessary waste, the Lord has told us to simply trust Him for funding, trust Him to tell us how much to send to each country, and then invest that amount in the sustainability projects the pastors are overseeing in these countries. This will increase the level of responsibility and accountability for the pastors and make them gradually independent as their own projects begin to produce local funding. Our ultimate hope is for each country to become self-sustainable through the grace of God, while remaining a family forever in Christ through prayer and relationship.
With this in mind, every pastor heading up The Lulu Tree in each of the African countries or regions has developed a five-year plan for sustainability. We would like to share those plans with you, so that you can join us in praying for this vision-bearers as they care enormously and sacrificially for their people.
