Your experience with the South African Student is similar to that of of many mobilizers. There are also problems from the other side of your story where churches and christians have contributed funds that for several reasons are yet to and may never get to the mission fields. The global effort must go on! There must be people who like you are working at raising these funds but we must work hard to earn and keep the confidence of contributors and talk to christians to get more involved. We must invent strategies for opening more doors among denominational leaders. Thanks for starting this blog.
