This is an American phrase in origin, possibly with Scottish influences, and isn't commonly used in other countries. Lickety maybe taken from lick, meaning speed as in 'going at quite a lick'
or headlong as in 'very fast sprint in a race'. It may have also come
from the ticking of a clock or the clickety-clack of a train. In the early industrial revolution, speed and time had new urgency. Steam engines, trains, and even household clocks made their appearance, changing the pace of society.
Our marathon pace from the past two years has picked up to a sprint. We can see the finish line of our preparation. We have 30 days
now until our financial clearance date. This is the last step before we can actually go to Africa. Africa Inland Mission will not let us go until we are fully supported. We are at 72%
which means we need $1225 per month
in pledges to reach our target goal of $4333 so we are not delayed leaving in June. For some of you, God has been telling you to step out in faith and make a pledge. (We have been there.) For others, please pray and ask God how you can help bring the gospel to the SAN Bushman. You may give monthly or yearly. Individuals, churches, Sunday School classes, small groups, or youth groups can make a pledge.
Most pledges have ranged from $10 to $100 a month.
Although your pledge will have our name on it, together as goers and senders we are fulfilling the Great Commission call to go into all the World.
We were reminded of why were are going this past Sunday as we celebrated Easter.
We worship the Living God who paid the price for our sins, so we can have eternal HOPE.
Christ is RISEN!!!
This is the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Will you help us reach the San with this GOOD NEWS?
