Initial steps of fundraising

I've started looking for financial partners for my ministry next year with the University Fellowship of Christians.

In addition to smaller supporters, I'm praying that God will provide ten contributors of $5 000 to $10 000 per annum for three years. I've had a few good openings, a few rejections. Will keep digging.

I'm kind of enjoying it, in a perverse sort of way. It's kind of a cross between high stakes black jack, extreme sports and Facebook.

It's also really encouraging to have someone say they can't give you money because they're already giving massive amounts to church planting in Asia or orphanages in India.
