Greetings from YWAM Lynchburg! We hope this newsletter finds you well. Your continued support and partnership have been instrumental in the impact we are making in Lynchburg and around the world.
God has been faithful. When we moved to Lynchburg, we anticipated increased needs and a decrease in income. Due to inflation, our rent and expenses rose. We willingly relinquished my part-time salary as a pastor and embraced the financial demands of pioneering a new YWAM location. With crazy steps of faith and unwavering trust in God's guidance, we have witnessed some financial breakthroughs.
Through one-time gifts and savings, our family was able to stay afloat until January. In February, YWAM Lynchburg settled into our new space downtown. And just last month, we received generous gifts to propel our ministry forward and prepare for college students joining us in the fall. We have also been blessed with much-needed furniture, paint, and other resources.
What we need now is an increase in our personal support. Since January, I (Dustin) have been working with DoorDash and GrubHub to bridge the financial gap. While this is a temporary solution, it is not sustainable in the long run. Currently, it takes away precious time I need to focus on YWAM and places a strain on me and our vehicles, both mentally and physically. God called us here not to deliver food but to expand His Kingdom in the lives of college students, helping them see the world of missions as they move forward. Our calling is to disciple young people and cultivate missional leaders. I need your assistance to get back on track.
How you can help:
1) Pray. We often underestimate the power of prayer. Prayer opens doors beyond our imagination. If you can commit to praying for us daily, it would make a significant impact.
2) Give monthly. If you have been considering monthly support but haven't made the commitment, now is the time. A contribution of $100 per month can go a long way. While we are grateful for one-time gifts, long-term sustainability requires more monthly support.
3) Increase your monthly giving. We are deeply grateful to those who have already taken this step. If others among you would consider increasing your monthly contribution, we would be immensely thankful.

Serving the King,
Dustin and Haydee Campbell
Please do keep us in your prayers!
