From time to time the needs list of Titus 2 is reviewed and updated. There are some things that are ongoing, regular consumable needs for the maintenance of the home- paper goods, cleaning supplies, student supplies, printer ink, bags of well system salt, etc. However, there are other one-time needs that arise or are identified. Some of those items on this newest list are in that category- a bicycle rack, electric pencil sharpener for classroom, and a new door for the laundry room. Then there are the “wish” items that simply make life a little easier, like Bible covers and Bible tabs. Some items requested are also replacement for items that are taken when women leave- hand held hairdryers, pillows and pillow cases, towels, and study Bibles.
We budget for some of the regular needs, but we still put them on the list so that people know the kinds of things their financial gifts enable us to provide. Donation campaigns by groups or businesses to gather such regularly-used items can help greatly to stretch the ministry’s budget dollars. We delay purchasing some of the other items for a while and share the need on the website, giving friends time to identify things they can donate from their own homes or purchase on sale. We pray for some of the other needs to be met whenever and however God chooses.
Please review the list and consider if there are things the Lord leads you to provide. Thank you.
