I started coming to C3 City church six years ago at the same time I started a new job. I gave my entire first pay check to Vision Builders as a  first fruits gift. I didn’t think much of it at the time, I was just grateful to the Lord for providing me with the new job in what was a very difficult job market at the time. Since then, over the last six years, the Lord has always been faithful and provided for me as I have made a commitment to give. The industry I work in has faced significant macroeconomic headwinds over the past few years and there were days where we have faced what looked like insurmountable challenges.

However, I found that every time (without fail and sometimes even at the 11th hour), the Lord has come through. I think my experience can best be summed up in Ephesians 3:20: “Now to him [God] who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”. This has been my experience over the past six years of giving to God through Vision Builders and volunteering on the Home team at church.
