Bretheren - what a great opportunity for This Hope's home church to be a blessing! Sunday Morning (11/20/11), we'll be taking a love offering to help our boys stay on the road. Let's give them an extra blessing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season! Pastor John
Greetings from THIS HOPE. We wanted to let you know about an urgent financial need. We just learned that we have to replace the entire engine in our bus at a cost of $40,000. In the past, we have been able to absorb unforeseen expenses like this, but we are not able to cover this cost at the present time. We are praying in faith that the Lord will provide the needed funds for us to purchase a new engine, and even put us in a more solid financial position to begin the new year.
We're sharing this need with you for two reasons. First, we ask that you would join with us in bringing this before the Lord in prayer. Above everything else, we want the Lord's will to be clearly demonstrated, and His glory to be magnified in this situation. While this expense has the very real potential to bring our traveling concert ministry to it's conclusion, we also don't want to miss out on how He might provide beyond all that we could ask or imagine.
With that in mind, we are also asking that you would prayerfully consider how you might be able to help us. We don't want anyone to take away from their existing financial commitments to the local church or any other Christian ministry. We're asking that you seek the Lord's face, and consider how He might direct you to help us continue moving forward. If the Lord guides you to participate in this need, you can make out a check payable to THIS HOPE, and send it to the address listed below. We also have a secure online webpage where donations can be given via debit or credit card: http://www.thishope.org/support.php
THIS HOPE is incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Your gifts are tax-deductible.
There will be a 6-8 week turn-around time for the engine replacement which will start whenever we are able to place an order for the new engine at an initial cost of $20,000. We will be traveling in a 15-passenger van until the bus is fixed, so please pray that the Lord will keep us physically strong and healthy during this grueling season. We currently have 21 concerts scheduled over 22 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas day. Due to the change in our transportation, we've had to modify our travel plans, and adjust concerts in order to effectively minister throughout this time.
Thanks for your faithful support over the years. We look forward to see how God will direct in the days to come.
