20% by Christmas - Goal Marker Number 1

The last two months has seen some great surprises in the support-raising endeavor. We've had some new people come on board, and some people who are making decisions to do so. This means that we are getting closer to reaching our 1st Stage goal of 20% by Christmas. With money regularly coming in and money foreseen we are just above 15%. To make our goal will by Christmas will be tight, but we've been so encouraged by the developments.

We have been very encouraged by future support from a couple of churches, and while monthly pledges may not come in by Christmas it is very encouraging nonetheless.

This is a difficult time for many of our supporters financially, and while we have this quantitative financial goal, we also are working to drum up prayer support. A number of faithful friends and family have committed to praying for us on a regular basis, and having that support is crucial.

We are very excited to be in this process, which can be faith strengthening to say the least. We've seen God's provision both for our needs now and for our mission.

We'd love to have 3 more people/families commit to praying for us weekly, and we'd love to see the remaining 5% of our support goal by Christmas come in.

Please email us and let us know how we might be able to pray for you as well.

Lastly if you are willing, please download our BenefitBar application. For every sponsored click from a search, we get 10 cents absolutely free to our supporters. All it costs is time, and is a good way to support us financially when times are tight and an excellent way to supplement support as well. The BeniBar can be downloaded here:

Come Join the Book-Satterlee Clicker’s Club, and click 20 times a week. $2.00 in supplemental support goes a long way!

Blessings and Merry Christmas!
