My greatest joy is to see God's people experience the abundance that happens in each individual's life as they partner with God for His purposes. I love seeing "the light come on" as people embrace God's plan for their life in the area of generosity. When we are generous towards God He will grow our hearts in ways that no other response can accomplish. Our work always helps the immediate financial needs of the local church but the greater benefit is to hear how God has changed hearts to be generous to His work for years to come. It truly is about changed hearts!
