Being Good Stewards
It’s been a busy winter/spring season for all of our MyGenMyFight leaders and friends. If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen some of our instagram stories from our local outreaches and events.
We were so grateful to be a part of Biola University’s Mission Conference this year and to have our wonderful, past ZOE/MyGenMyFight Intern, Cristina Amaro serve with us during this event.
We had several hundred people stop by our table and had many people grab our brochures. Several people also signed up to learn more about ZOE.
On the last night of the conference, Cristina had set up a meeting with a student named Caitlyn. She let me know that Caitlyn had asked her about ZOE/MyGenMyFight. Cristina also told me Caitlyn wanted to give me a check for ZOE.
When we met, Caitlyn explained that she actually asked Cristina about ZOE, wanting to know her experience with us as an intern, but mainly because of a school assignment where she had to study accountability and finances within a non-profit. She called our office and our office manager, Karen sent her all of our public financial information. She studied ZOE and wrote a report on our financial accountability and program as a part of a class at Biola. She then said she was very impressed with ZOE’s financial accountability and had her research paper sent in to Giving University as a consideration for agrant. She was selected and awarded a $1000 donation to give to ZOE!
We felt so honored and grateful to know that someone that initially didn’t know anything about ZOE, did some deep research on our financial accountability and was so impacted by the way we steward our finances.
Thank you to all our donors who generously give to ZOE month after month. We are grateful for you and will continue to do our best to use every financial gift for Kingdom purposes with accountability and excellence.
