happy to introduce to you Don & Betti Stone.
Don is our new treasurer, and Betti our new secretary. Their pastor
is one of the board members of H2TNI. This is our new address:
Colorado Springs, CO 80970
Ph. (719) 591 7571
believe that the intense attacks of the past three months - that
are still continuing - are a frantic attempt of the enemy to take
us out before we enter into the next great season
the Lord has prepared for us. The release of the book
in March and a family of three joining us in Mali
in May are just two powerful life changes ahead of us that will
take us to a new level. Please pray for me, Paul,
Christian, and the rest of us.
I have an administrative gift, and I love numbers, it's fascinating
to me to look over the numbers of 2010 and compare them
with 2009. As our supporters you have every right to have
insight into our books to see where your money goes. These next
few paragraphs give you some information - feel free to skip them
if you're not interested.
General donations 2010 - up
Expenses - up 15.5%
Construction donations - up
2009 we were able to reduce our debts by 81%. I'm happy to tell
you that we were able to eradicate the ministry's debt
in 2010. Praise God!
monthly average amount we spent is 7.300€,
Our faithful monthly donors currently give a total
of about 3.000€,
That means we are 59%
of our expenses short every month. In the best
case scenario, that difference comes in through one-time donations.
In the worst case scenario, the ministry goes into debt. It is my
travels that help bring in those one-time donations.
ask me where most of our donations come from - 37%
of last year's donations (building fund excluded)
came from the USA, while 63%
came from Europe & Africa and mostly from Austria.
ministry seeks to give away 10% of incoming money
(unless dedicated to something specific) to other ministries, as
we believe in tithing and giving, and the blessings that result
thereof. In 2010 we came very close to that goal, and hope to reach
it this year.
numbers of expenses so you have an idea where our greatest needs
are; these are averages per month for 2010.
- 900€, i.e.
$1,250 (excluding Claudia's food)
- 350€, i.e.
repairs/maintenance - 260€,
for cars - 260€,
hope these numbers are beneficial to you. Feel free to ask me if
you have any questions.

- Please continue praying for us. Attacks
are coming from the outside (neighbors, government,
police), the inside (kids doing horrible things)
and the spiritual world (Paul was attacked in
a dream and woke up with physical pain).
Book - Printing finishes March 25th
in the USA. A few book reviews can already be read here.
In Europe it can be pre-ordered here.
Assistant Needed - I'm looking for a female on-fire Christian
with a heart to serve who will travel with me
as my PA from June through November. You'll have
to raise your own support as we travel to the US, Europe and Mali.
Preferred are those who have done the IRIS, Bethel school, Fire
& Fragrance, or the like. Reply to this email for more information.
- Thanks to a few donations for construction, we are
now finishing the space between the two houses where our kitchen
is moving. Then we're adding a kitchen and bathroom to the rooms
on top of the dining hall to create an apartment for the family
comin to join our team in May. Once that is done, we can hopefully
continue work on our third building - once money comes in. However,
we need to pay for additional solar panels in
the weeks to come first (see paragraph on top).
we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of
the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to
glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
