HEALING 2 BODY & SOUL
2013 FINANCIAL STATISTICS
had a wonderful time looking back at all God's done in 2013,
looking at all the pictures, and at the goals we set ourselves a
year ago. We spent time thanking God, taking communion, setting
new goals, and praying for 2014, as well as playing games and having
fun. We're expecting a great year ahead!

have finished closing accounting for 2013, and have compared the
numbers for 2013 with 2012.
These next few paragraphs give you some information - feel free
to skip them if you're not interested.
General donations & sales 2013 - up
Expenses - up 19%
we started 2013 with a negative of 2000€ or $2700, God did
a miracle and we surprisingly finished it with a much smaller negative
balance than expected - of 1070€
monthly average amount we spent is 9.820€,
Our faithful monthly donors currently give a total
of about 4.200€,
i.e. $5,500.That means we are 57%
of our expenses short every month, which is an
decrease of 9%. 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
ask me where most of our donations come from - 48%
of last year's donations came from the USA,
while 45% came from
Europe & Africa and mostly from Austria. 1.6%
of our income came from sales (books & CDs etc.) in Europe,
and 0.8% from sales
in the US. 4% of our
income came from Mali (tithe & offerings and from visitors).

at YWAM - Tonight Joseph and I are flying to Dakar,
and on Sunday his YWAM discipleship school starts. If you would
like to help us with ticket and school
fees for Joseph, please mark your donation with "Joseph".
- Praise God with us that our debts were reduced dramatically,
and pray for the money to come in to cover the next installment
of tuition we have to pay right now.
Trouble - The mechanic has assessed our totaled
bus but not given us the numbers yet of how much repairing
it would cost. In the meantime, our remaining two vehicles
(22 years and 13 years old) alternate getting repaired at the
mechanic's, costing us a lot money.
in the US with me - If you are in Kansas City or Harrisburg,
we have an informal meeting scheduled in each
city to make sure we get to see everyone who would like to see
us. Please contact me if you'd like to come: Kansas City
Feb 22, Harrisburg March 2nd.
May-June - I'm starting to schedule meetings
in Europe in May and June. Please contact me if you'd like me
to come to minister at your church.

months or more. If you'd like to come help us, please contact

the new is here! (2
