The total reflected in the Monthly Contribution Report printed in the next issue of our newsletter may be more … in fact, we are praying it will be exceedingly richly more! – but, we are preparing this update for publication before the close of the month…
WE NEED TO REACH FOR OUR $50,000.00 THANKSGIVING OFFERING GOAL!
(…please read below…)
Have you given your personal offering toward the 2019 THANKSGIVING OFFERING?
All the offerings given to the Thanksgiving Offering go directly toward the support of our missionaries by funding the commitments, benefits, and services we give them over the course of the next year.
Consider these truths:
- All the commitments, benefits, and services we give our missionaries are funded through offerings and contributions given to the Missionary Support Fund
- The only contribution streams that supply the Missionary Support Fund are the monthly offerings given to the Missionary Support Fund and the THANKSGIVING OFFERING
- The monthly Missionary Support Fund contributions do not sustain all the accrued annual disbursements for the commitments, benefits, and services we give our missionaries
- Therefore, we need and depend upon the THANKSGIVING OFFERINGS to make up for the monthly deficits we will incur in providing the commitments, benefits, and services we give our missionaries over the upcoming year
- This year’s THANKSGIVING OFFERING will supply next year’s monthly deficits in Missionary Support Fund contributions and disbursements
- IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE SUFFICIENT THANKSGIVING OFFERING FUNDS NOW IN ADVANCE OF NEXT YEAR’S DISBURSEMENTS, THEN WE WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO REDUCE THE COMMITMENTS, BENEFITS, AND SERVICES WE GIVE TO OUR MISSIONARIES
- we have no other reserves, subsidies, or endowments to draw from or fall back on
- we cannot borrow money to operate
- So, it is essential that we all give as generously as possible so our missionaries’ needs will be supplied
- Will you give a generous personal THANKSGIVING OFFERING right now?
- and, at the same time, may we encourage you to commit to making monthly offerings to the Missionary Support Fund!
- Your missionaries’ needs will be met – and thanksgivings to God will abound and increase and continue!
You can give your Thanksgiving Offering either through your church’s offering, or by mailing your personal check to our Treasurer, or by giving online through our website www.baptistfaithmissions.org ‘Donate/Support’ tab and typing in Thanksgiving Offering in the memo field.
