"For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability."
~2 Corinthians 8:3
To support this, the Augustana District regularly sends funds to the Tabor Congregation of the EECMY. These funds originally come from congregations
Here is a glance at what has been sent so far from 2014-2017:
• $146,378 for Evangelist support
• $32,497 for new church construction
• $22,928 for the purchase of church land
• $7,400 for farmer training/support
• $28,769 for a purchase of ministry vehicle
• $6,250 for Evangelist and minister training
• Total = $244,222
That is pretty amazing to know that we have helped make such a big impact in spreading the Gospel!
But here is the really great part: the Tabor Congregation (EECMY) has put in $553,940 for all of these things! Our support from the Augustana District is roughly 31% of the total! They are the leaders of this, and we are merely partners helping them to make a greater impact.
There is a cost to the commitment that calls for fervent prayers. You see here a man converted from Islam encouraged by our delegation’s support even as he faces strong opposition for this conversion and is a donation of land for a Christian worship center. Facing these challenges that can be life-threatening his wife and another woman are in deep prayer for the worship services upcoming.
We hope that you will continue to give and prayerfully consider increasing your giving toward Augustana District so that we can continue to grow partnerships like this.
