My First GoFundMe

John Wayne once said, “A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”

Clint Eastwood once said, “A man’s gotta know his limitations.”

James (James 4:2) said, “[Ye] have not, because ye ask not.”

Therefore, since I knew my financial limitations, I knew what I needed to do: Ask.

So, I have set up a GoFundMe campaign to help get our Toyota van back on the road. The transmission died Friday, and there is no way we can come up with the estimated $2,000 to $2,500 to fix it any time soon.

I don’t want to always be asking for help, because I don’t think that’s what John Wayne or Clint Eastwood would do. But I’m not either one of those guys; I’m a bi-vocational pastor of a tiny church who’s run into every obstacle imaginable over the last year and has been unable to work much. God has provided, so I’m not bitter. However, He has provided much through the generosity of those whose hearts He has burdened to help.

And I appreciate them more than they will ever know.

Now, if you can help, God bless you. If you can’t, why not share this with someone who might be able to. And, if nothing else, keep my family and ministry in your prayers.

God bless,
Anthony Baker (The Recovering Legalist)
