GospelFriendships Financial Update

Wow. Jesus surprised us bigtime by moving a half-dozen folks to give in unexpected ways in 2020, so that instead of a $5k deficit, we had an $11k surplus, which we've needed for the past several years as our cash balance at the bank has steadily decreased, so that two years ago, I only received half-salary in August, and no salary for the fall months. We always run a deficit in summer and fall, and years ago we had enough cash in the bank to still pay bills. Thank You, Jesus, for this provision! -- WeakDave and Janet

Unless you are unusually-self-aware,

you won't realize how unhappy and uncontent you are when you're human-wisdom-dependent. You'll just think your life has always been this way. So without tastes of Heaven -- Jesus-dependency, you won
