Greetings all. Evidently winter blues aren’t going away for most in NAmerica, but in NAfrica we have reached our absolutely favorite weather of the year. It’s been good for our souls.
Regarding the Newsletter, let me go back and see what happened. A handful of ppl are telling us they never received it 🤔🤨. Let me check on that👍✊.
HUGE PRAYER NEED🙏🏽🙏🏽
We have always tried to be transparent with you, even at the risk of sometimes sharing things that are quite risky to us (in life or business).
Perhaps this puts us in a vulnerable place, but we don’t choose to do it any other way.
As a quick update, Old World Timber has had some really good months. We have actually had some of our best months this first quarter of the year. However, one good quarter does not a business make or break.
That being said, we still need divine help to assist our long and hard work hours. We subscribe to the theology of business that this company is the Lords and we need Him and His grace as much as we need a clear business plan, a healthy team and a strong work ethic.
This week we are looking to close 2-3 huge deals that could once again help transform the future trajectory of OWT and its local and global impact.
One such deal is with Menards (a Home Depot of sorts). We have been working on a proposal for Manards for a few months and the final answer comes this week. We aren’t saying we should be favored above others because we are believers, however we do ask for you to pray for the Lords favor upon us none-the-less.
We are working extremely hard. We are withstanding tons of obstacles to succeed in a competitive industry. At the same time we refuse to go about it without the Lord’s guidance, wisdom and favor. It’s such a hard balance. We are convinced the Lord is creator and caretaker of both the sacred and secular. He desires us to blend these two worlds in a way that honors Him. It isn’t easy. And we can’t do it alone.
Our prayer is that Menards and these two other deals would work in our favor. But not our will, but His will be done.
Will you pray🙏🏽🙏🏽?
The meetings happen at the of this week.
You have prayed so many other times and for that we are thankful. Yet once again we are in need of your supernatural prayers.
For Him and for His glory!
