Thank you all so much for for praying for our current vehicle situation. As we shared earlier our family van is dying leaving us with only the hatchback that I drive to schools currently.
After much prayer we have decided to let Erin have my hatchback to drive and try to raise funds for a ministry vehicle through FCA that can be used for visiting schools, taking students and coaches to camps, and taking our family to visit churches and supporters. Ideally we would like something with a 3rd row so that we can take more people. However, our main desire is to have something that will fit our family and luggage, low mileage, and dependable for long trips and many years of ministry.
Since our last prayer letter we were blessed with a $3,000 gift to our FCA account to help kick off fundraising for this ministry vehicle. Our friends who made this donation and Erin and I are hopeful that this will jumpstart the funds needed to purchase this vehicle. If you would like to know more about our personal fundraising goal and what we are looking for please feel free to contact me (Andy) any time. If you would like to donate towards this ministry vehicle, you can click on the link on the side of this page and do a one time donation through our online giving page, where you will receive a receipt for tax credits.
Thank you so much for praying for our family and please pray that we will be able to reach the needed funds soon. Thank you so much!
As we approach the end of the year would you please pray about making an end of the year donation to our ministry with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes? We are very close to reaching our committed monthly support goal and you can help us reach that by New Years. Also, if you would rather do a single gift, those donations will go to help us with buying Bibles for coaches and athletes, sending them to camps and conferences, and many other ministry expenses. Above all please keep us in your prayers as we serve the athletes and coaches here in Central and Eastern Kentucky!
To make a donation just click on the donate button on the right side of this webpage today!
The next week is going to be a busy time for everyone as Thanksgiving is approaching fast. Over the years the days after Thanksgiving have all been given various consumer/business based names in an attempt to kick off the Christmas buying season. On Friday and in some places Thursday, things get going with Black Friday. On Saturday people are encouraged to shop local and get out for Small Business Saturday. Lastly on Monday, you have Cyber Monday where you can find all those good deals online! However, have you heard of Giving Tuesday?
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is now known as Giving Tuesday. It’s a day designed to move past all the consumerism that takes place right after Thanksgiving and for us to look to various charities, ministries, and other ways we can give to help out. It’s a really great opportunity to give back.
This year we would like to ask you to consider joining in supporting our ministry with FCA on Giving Tuesday. You can click on the link on the right hand side of our page and be taken to our myFCA page where you can set up a one time or automatic monthly gift. As we stated in our previous post we are currently at about 70% of our committed support goal. Please pray about helping us reach full 100% by becoming a monthly partner on our Home Team. Maybe you are unable to join us in a monthly way, would you please pray about becoming an annual donor or at least giving a year end gift on Giving Tuesday? If you would rather not give online, but would like to give please let us know and we will get you that information right away. And the good news is you can join us before and after Giving Tuesday as well!!!
When Giving Tuesday comes next week please consider donating to our family and the ministry of Fellowship of Christian Athletes!
