Evangelism ’17 Update 2.13.17: One-Fourth of the Way to Our Goal; Daily Office Retreat March 2-5



I’m impressed. We raised $6000 last week for mission and evangelism and are now one-fourth of the way to our goal of $36,000 for this year. That’s fantastic!

And I must add at once that the total pledged will be considerably larger, but we don’t yet have records of some continuing pledges paid in January. I expect the number to jump in the next few days.

The main challenge seems to be getting our request in front of our 3400 subscribers often enough that they can act on it.

We ask $10 per subscriber per year – more if you can afford it, less if you can’t. We need your donations to continue publishing Morning & Evening Prayer in English & Spanish for the Eastern & Western Hemispheres, as well as our missionary projects in Haiti, Liberia, Brazil & the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

In other news, we will hold our 2nd spiritual retreat Thursday-Sunday, March 2-5 at Camp Hardtner in Pollock, Louisiana; cost is just $200, and we’ll provide transportation to and from the airport in New Orleans.

Several of us will take a few days afterward for sightseeing in the New Orleans area, including a visit to the must-see Whitney Plantation and the antebellum cemetery at St. Francisville. We will share housing costs and still have 1-2 places free. Join us!


Again, thanks to all who pray with us. We’re doing everything we can think of to extend God’s kingdom, and we need your help!
