Most people do not realize that giving to God's work is a form of worship. In the Old Testament God commanded His people to offer burnt offerings. Who benefited from these offerings? It was a burnt offering to show God's people's desire to please God. Paul put it this way when he wrote to the saints at Phillipi and even alluded that their New Testament financial support was like the burnt offerings in the Old Testament
Note he said:
Philippians 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. Philippians 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things [which were sent] from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God.
Also Paul in reference to giving to God's work said,
II Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
God bless you for your desire to offer up a burnt offering to the Lord in the form of financial support for this ministry. Again the apostle Paul summed up his praise for the obedience of God's people in the area of giving by saying,
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
