We enjoy participating in the global Christian observance called Lent. Lent is the 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter, the resurrection of Jesus. During Lent many people give up something in their life, whether it's meals or sweets or TV, so that instead of turning to that luxury or necessity they turn to God in prayer and for provision. During these 40 days Christians prepare for the Holy Week. There's much somberness as we remember the torture and death of Christ, but then there is much rejoicing and praising that three days after His death He rose again. Lent is usually a time of fasting and prayer and focusing on the Lord.
That's what we are planning to do. As a family we will be spending extra time fasting and praying and asking the Lord to provide for our funds. We also want to invite you to join with us this Lenten season. We want to even take it a step further and ask you to not only pray with us, but partner with us. If you are not already donating toward our missions support or if you are convicted to give more, we welcome you to join the 60/40 Challenge with us.
The 60/40 Challenge is a way to get us completely funded by the end of Lent so that we can soon return to the Philippines where the Lord wants us to serve. Listed below are certain dollar amounts that we need donated monthly and the amount of people or groups we need to donate that certain amount each month for the rest of 2017. To join the 60/40 Challenge click on one of the dollar bills below. It will open as an email. Write us saying that you will commit to donating this certain amount each month (either through automatic recurring payments or as a pledge to give) and write down your phone number. We will then send you all the info you need and will personally call you and pray with you. We need 60 of you in total for this to work.
We are blessed that the Lord has called us to the Philippines but, as a result, it includes raising much support to get there in the beginning. We are encouraged by your prayers and partnership and we want you all on our team. May the Lord bless you as you pray and decide the amount to donate monthly. Pray for 60 people to make pledges during these 40 days of Lent.
