Our Current Praise & Needs
“Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.”
– Philippians 4:6, NASB
TorahResource believes “God’s work done God’s way, will never lack God’s support.” This is why we determined not to ask for money but to commit ourselves to daily prayer, that God would meet our financial needs so long as He intends us to continue this work. In seeking to follow a biblical pattern of ministry, we do feel it appropriate to make our needs known so that others may also pray for God’s provision on our behalf. Thus, below you will find a current list of needs we have as we continue with our work at TorahResource and TorahResource Institute. We thank you in advance for partnering with us in this important work.
Recent Praise Reports
- We are thankful for a blessed Passover season. Through social media we presented videos on Passover and traditions related to Passover which sparked some really good interaction. We were also blessed in assisting folks who are new at celebrating Passover and Unleavened Bread.
- More papers! Rob Vanhoff will be presenting two papers in two different sections of the 2017 Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting in Boston. This is a wonderful opportunity for him that we are very thankful for, but it also brings a high level of stress. Please keep Rob in your prayers as he studies and prepares his papers.
- We are thankful that the TorahResource Online Library is up and running and serving its purpose. We put a lot of work into getting our digital library online and those who have purchased Library Memberships have expressed their appreciation for access these resources.
Current Projects & Needs
- Orders through the TorahResource Online Store have dropped substantially over the past few months. We are not sure why this has happened but we are trusting in the Lord that orders will pick up again soon. Although most of our operating income comes from donations, our orders are a helpful financial boost during the summer months.
- We are praying that the Lord will provide extra money for us to hire the services of a marketing consultant as we try to reach more people through our website. We are looking for some direction in marketing our products and in the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of the website and online store and in other ways we can connect with new customers and help our current customers find what they are looking for. Please pray that the Lord will guide us in this area.
- We are coming into the summer months which is typically a very lean time in the area of donations and giving. We are praying that the Lord will bring in enough funding to cover payroll during this season, so our staff will continue to be supported.
