2010-11 THANKSGIVING OFFERING | GOAL: $100,000.00
At the time of this writing [first of March, 2011], we have received $59,718.82, including your THANKSGIVING OFFERINGS received during February.
GOD BLESS EACH ONE OF YOU WHO HAS GIVEN TO THIS OFFERING. If you have not given a personal offering yet, please do so as the Lord gives you Grace to give! No offering is too small. No offering is insignificant.
You can give your offering designated to BFM THANKSGIVING OFFERING through your church, or you can send it directly to our Treasurer for THANKSGIVING OFFERING. Baptist Faith Missions, c/o George Sledd, P.O. Box 471280, Lake Monroe FL 32747.
UPDATE: This year’s Thanksgiving Offering is down 35% from last year’s. And, we needed ALL of last year’s $92,264.30 that we gave. There are very significant sums which are disbursed from these Thanksgiving Offerings during the year – sometimes thousands of dollars at a time.
Just one example, last year , we disbursed $16,000.00 just for furlough transportation expenses. So far here in the first quarter of 2011, we have already disbursed $9500.00 for furlough transportation expenses. When we take sums like this out of $60,000.00 [this year’s Thanksgiving Offering total] just for one line item [and especially this early in the fiscal year], it doesn’t take long to exhaust the supplies.
Besides, each month we disburse an average of $5000 per month for other regular support services we provide for our missionaries.
So, WE HOPE YOU WILL CONTINUE TO HELP US MAKE IT THROUGH THE YEAR BY GIVING TO THE THANKSGIVING OFFERING!
