Since I published my post about the grant I've had a few people asking me about what will happen with the money. It's a good question as there have been a couple veterans charities in the last 12 months caught out doing some dodgy stuff. Likewise, there's the old stigma about churches and religious organisations asking for money. Well I absolutely promise we are not buying a jet plane!
For what it’s worth we’re what’s called a ‘tent maker’ ministry. After St Paul who didn’t ask for community donations or support but made tents in order to feed himself a support his mission. We all have full time jobs and do not and will not draw a salary. Any money we get goes straight into mission costs'. So the grant money when it arrives will be used to find the Faith Leaders and Veterans and Supporters Workshops
