HE DID IT! MY GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES!

Finances March 1st, 2010-December 31th, 2010                                     (in Kwacha & Dollars) 

“For with God nothing will be impossible.”

This is a quote recorded by Luke, a physician, who writes a detailed account of the life of Jesus. This is a quote from an angel, yes an angel, who speaks to Mary, the mother of Jesus. Luke Chapter 1, verse 37.

Praise God, Who promised us self-sustainability in 9 months!!!!  Jesus, You are our Promise Keeper! You did it! I am in awe! Praise to the God who cares about every detail! He cares about every part of our lives- our relationships, our work, our finances, etc. etc. Our God reigns! And He is a great Dad! Zikomo Yesu! If you are doubting that God can do anything, call me. I will introduce you to the God who moves mountains for His children.

A special thank you and acknowledgement to our 25 year old financial accountant (smile) and Director of the Africa ABC Project, James Machila, who managed our financial books from March to December. James, we know how much work this was and we praise God for your integrity, perseverance, and love for Jesus!

Currently we do not have a computer based book keeping system, but our simple process of accounting is working for us until we can have the training and computer systems for something more current. Please email me if you would like to see our past budgets for 2010 or our current budgets outlined for 2011. maribeth@theocean.cc Currently we are reconciling the books monthly and reporting our monthly budget results to the Board. It costs approximately between  2,500-2,800 US monthly for payroll, rent and operations (school, ABC, and training center budgets).

2010 Results & Update –Thank you Jesus!

“For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

From Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. (1 Corinthians 3:9-11)
