I pray all is well with everyone, and all of my brothers and sisters of the household of faith. I am writing this message in regards to what God has placed on my heart recently. This year has been tough on me and my family financially. And with the hopes of pressing forward in my music ministry, I haven’t gained much, if not anything from what I’ve been doing.
I constantly pour, pour, and pour finances into my music to make the material and to put it out. And its starting to effect my wife and kids financially. Does this message mean that I’m going to stop doing what I’m doing for God? Absolutely not! Because at the end of the day, its not about the money, its about Glorify God and leading souls to Christ!
But what I am asking for is your help…are you willing to sow a seed for me?
God is constantly placing more music to write, and witty ideas into my spirit. And I’m not sure if anyone has been keeping up with my ministry , but I’ve been venturing into the side of videography lately.
The last three videos I shot, ‘La Familia‘, ‘Don’t Give In‘, and ‘We Ridin’‘, I shot entirely myself AND edited also. These are things that I learned to do in College when I studied Mass Communication with an emphasis on Radio/TV.
I never thought then that I would utilize those things I learned, until now. God has finally revealed to me the reason why He allowed me to know the things I do in regards to videography. It wasn’t all for nothing.
You may be asking yourself, ‘how we’re you able to shoot those last videos if your hurting financially’? By the grace of God, my loving Pastor owns a pretty expensive camera that I’ve been using to record footage, and with the editing programs I already have, I’ve been editing the footage I’ve recorded with it. That blesses me greatly.
But here’s the problem, the camera isn’t mine. So I’m constantly borrowing from my Pastor to shoot these videos, which in my mind, becomes quite a burden on him (although he says otherwise, love you Pastor lol).
So with that being said, I’m asking kindly if anyone out there would be willing to donate funds for me to invest in my own camera equipment to shoot video with.
Before we go there though, let me share with you the vision God has revealed to me lately.
This isn’t simply for my own music material to shoot. There are a litany of artists in Nashville, TN and the surrounding cities who are just as committed to serving God through music as I am, and they need exposure. So once I gain the items God has placed in my heart to invest in, it’s time to put it to God’s good work!
I am looking at investing in a Sony Alpha a6000 with a Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS Lens (roughly less than $1000)
I know this may sound a bit much, but any little bit will help! And I am eternally grateful!
So I’ll even go as far as to say, I’m begging you! If you are willing and able, please sow into my music ministry for this purpose by donating below to my Paypal! If PayPal doesn’t work for you, please contact me if this is on your heart to donate, and we can work something out!
I’m fully trusting God to provide for me on this, so for me to put this message out shows how much I trust Him, because this is something I never do.
God bless you all! And thank you eternally for your continuous love and support!
