Partnership development takes patience, creativity, and emotional energy.
- Patience to work steadily over time at a daunting goal and the willingness to actually listen to those you meet.
- Creativity to anticipate what your audience would appreciate knowing and finding captivating and compelling ways to communicate so they are free to respond to the Lord’s call on their lives.
- Emotional energy to reject the lies of the evil one that say “you’ll never meet your goal” or “you aren’t really good missionary material” when it is time to pick up the phone again and reach out to ask if you might share God’s Plan for the Nations.
Lord, clear away the unseen spiritual barriers that might manifest in difficulty with raising prayer and financial partners.
