For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
That’s what MaryAnne Augustin—one of our global partners working with Wycliffe Bible Translators—called herself as one who is required to ask for funds to support her ministry. She was speaking to the church staff at a staff lunch, commenting upon her continual humble dependence upon the provision of God.
