It seemed to me like a cliffhanger. Our ministry account with ReachGlobal had dropped below the minimum required for a family. That triggered budgeting measures like no more reimbursement of ministry expenses. Most importantly, I wasn’t going to be able to renew my teaching contract with the seminary since it’s funded through our ministry account. I was even beginning to get a little nervous that we’d have to leave the field before our next scheduled home assignment.
