Location: Sonoma, California
As many of you know, I own a retail store. A while ago Guidance told me that I should pick a product and donate the profits from the sale of that product to the Foundation.
It took me a bit to get on this bandwagon as my store can use every bit of income I can get right now ---- or so the ego says.
So, I decided to make this commitment. When I sell this certain item, I will donate the $50, which would normally be the 'profit', to the Foundation.
Last night, I got an order for 2 of these. The customer has paid and the credit card has been run. So I will send the Foundation $100 today.
In completing this transaction, the customer asked if I had another product he has been looking for. I do and he is considering buying it. If he does, I will make a significant 'profit'. Which will make a big dent in the monthly expenses.
I believe that this customer came to me because I made this commitment and that I am getting further business from him because it is the Father's Good Pleasure To Give Me the Kingdom. Today the Kingdom looks a little bit like money to pay bills!
I asked what I could do to help and this is what I was told. I will keep you posted on how it goes.
