There is no questioning, how the money is handled, and the means by which expenses are measured and monitored is a matter that lies at the core of any effort’s sustainability and integrity. The way money is spent or saved makes or breaks an otherwise great work. And so from day one we have taken these things very seriously, and so do all of our board members. That is why we are so excited to announce a few new volunteer members to the Bring Love In team.
Neal and Kim Kellenberger are great people who we have been blessed to know as friends since we met them when they traveled to Ethiopia when adopting their twin daughters Kebe and Shena. Today though, we get the pleasure of announcing that Neal and Kim are coming on as our accounting/finance managers for Bring Love In! How amazing is this? We couldn’t think of more capable, passionate people to fill this role.
I could go on and on about these beautiful people and how God brought them to us, and how they have just the right accounting skills mixed with a passion for the Gospel, and crazy attention to detail, but I would rather let Neal tell you in his own words about their families heart for serving (and financial planning).
Our family, full of crazy passion for the Glory of God, finds ourselves in the trenches of life in a suburb of the college town of Champaign, Illinois! Ever since the day we met 11 years ago (married 10 of those), our Jesus had special things planned for our family. But we never knew it would come in the form of three amazing birth children and two gloriously beautiful twin daughters from Ethiopia! I have a Masters degree in Accounting and Information Systems and am a registered Certified Public Accountant in the state of Illinois. I am excited to be helping with the accounting for Bring Love In. My wife Kim is an amazing support and brings a lot of experience serving in many different areas to me and Bring Love In. I couldn’t do what I do without her support and love for Jesus radiating through her! God’s heart for the orphan and widow resonates deeply with us and our hearts have been tugged to Ethiopia for several years – Bring Love In is a God-send to allow us to use our passions for the Kingdom!
Please join us as we welcome Neal and Kim to the team, and thank God for bringing them along at just the right time.
If you ever have a question that you want to ask Neal or Kim about the finances, we encourage you to write and get the answer. They can be reached at Nealkim1921@gmail.com.
