Just as Paul and Barnabas were set apart for the work God had for them to do in Acts 13, the Missionary Employees at New Life Ranch are sanctioned by God to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to equip and train other to do the same. Paul said, “… the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel” 1 Corinthians 9:14. Mary Magdalene and many more of Jesus’ followers contributed to the support of Jesus and the disciples out of their private means (Luke 8:23). Although Jesus turned water to wine, multiplied loaves and fished, and harvested a coin from a fish to pay his taxes, he chose to be supported by other as he went from town to town proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Similarly, we have chosen to be supported by those who recognize the tremendous impact NLR has in spreading the good news, rather than significantly increasing our charge to those we minister to in order to cover all staff salaries.
