Our Philosophy of Raising Support

In Exodus 25, the Lord called Moses to meet Him on the mountain top where He then revealed His plan for Moses to build His tabernacle. Over the next forty days, the Lord explained the various artifacts needed for the tent of meeting. Ten chapters later, Moses descended from the mountain, gathered the people of Israel, and conveyed to the them the Lord's instructions. The Bible says, "This is the thing which the Lord has commanded, saying, 'Take from among you a contribution to the Lord; whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as the Lord's contribution; gold, silver, and bronze, blue, purple, and scarlet material, fine linen, goats' hair, and rams' skin dyed in red, and porpoise skins, and acacia wood, and oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil" (Exod. 35:4-8).
As the story goes Moses dismissed the people, they went to their homes, and then "Everyone whose heart stirred him, and everyone whose spirit moved him came and brought the Lord's contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments" (Exod. 35:21).
Obviously, Moses did not have the personal resources to build the tabernacle and fulfill the Lord's command. Ambassadors for Truth identifies with Moses in that we personally do not have the financial means to carry out the work which the Lord has commanded us to do in Nepal. The glorious truth revealed in the passage before us is that the Spirit of the living God stirred the hearts of His people to give what was needed to build what He commanded. This biblical truth undergirds the approach we incorporate to raise our financial support. We are praying earnestly for the Spirit of God to stir the hearts of His people to give a freewill offering to the Lord. In this respect, the Lord assumes the financial burden. The responsibility of Ambassadors for Truth is to communicate what God is doing in the Himalayas and convey the work He has called us to.
