My Apologies

I finally had some time to do some maintenance on my end of things here this morning. Normally I just have time to do what has to be done to keep the fire from raging out of control, and sometimes I don’t even do that. (As you know, we’ve been having quite a few problems with our server these last few weeks. Thanks to the diligence of Joe Stallard, we’re hoping these problems have been resolved.)

So this morning when I saw that an old email address was still listed on our PayPal donation site, I was really upset—at myself. This meant I was not getting acknowledgements of your donations, and had not been responding with thanks for you generosity. I felt terrible. So many of you have given to us so we can continue the upkeep on this site, and you are probably wondering just why I have not written to you with my gratitude. It’s simple: I was not getting acknowledgement of your donation.

I have been getting balance updates from PayPal, and transfer that money into our bank account. (It’s an account with Arvest Bank here in Oklahoma, and used solely for Internet Monk. I have  my personal accounts with a different bank, keeping the two as separate as possible so there is no appearance of monkey business. I’m just trying to be open here with you.) But I have not been getting notification of individual donations.

I fixed that this morning. Now when you donate to us using PayPal, a notification will be sent to me at my iMonk email address. Then I will—Lord willing and the creek don’t rise—send you a note expressing my sincere thanks.

All donations are most welcome. Some send five bucks, some more than a thousand. Some donate one time, others on a regular basis. And I thank the Lord with each donation for his faithfulness to us, and pray his blessing on you for your generosity.

So, will you please forgive me for this long-overdue correction?

And will you please join with me in thanking Joe Stallard for keeping InternetMonk cruising along at warp speed?

  2. Thank you, Joe!!!

  3. I just thought that you keeping the place up and running was thanks enough so I never expected anymore.

    Thanks again for all you do (and a prayer or two for job for me would also help!!) 🙂

    Well done Joe! My little heart sighs when I can’t get onto this page, so thank you very much for all you do to keep it running!

    Thank you Joe! IM has been my oxygen, my life line in my wilderness journey. You have played such a large role in making this site available to us all. You may be a “behind the scenes” IMonk but you are invaluable. May the Lord richly bless you.

  7. Thank you Joe for your hard work and patience!
