Thank you from International Ministries and Kristy Engel!
I just want to thank you for your help and support during the financial difficulties facing Kristy Engel and other International Ministries missionaries. As many of you know, Kristy is now required to raise her own support through pledges and donations so that she can return to work in La Romana and continue ministering through the Good Samaritan Hospital. Although there are still many needs, the matching grant for new donations through June 30, 2009 has really been a big help. If you have not heard about this or are still interested in helping, please click on this link to learn how you can encourage Kristy through a pledge or donation that will support her work: http://www.internationalministries.org/artifacts/10189.

Ongoing Donations/PledgesAlthough there is a wonderful opportunity to have your donation doubled if given by June 30th, 2009, this may not work for everyone. If you are interested in making a monthly pledge, even if it is only $5, $10 or $25, please don't hesitate. For Kristy to continue working with the Good Samaritan Hospital and the Maranatha church in La Romana, she needs your monthly pledge. If 65 people could make a monthly pledge of only $50, Kristy would be able to meet her yearly financial goal. Can you be one of those 65 people? Maybe you can join with several others to help or encourage someone to begin a commitment to the ministry in La Romana through Kristy Engel. Every dollar makes a difference. If you are unable to make a financial commitment at this time, consider making a commitment to pray, on a daily basis, for Kristy and the ministry in La Romana. Donate now!

Update on Kristy's spring and summer travels...
IllinoisIn April 2009, I (Kristy) returned to the US to begin Home Assignment and travel for International Ministries. The purpose of my U.S. visit is to talk to churches, groups, organizations and schools/universities about the work in La Romana. I am also fund-raising and encouraging individuals or groups to support my work through partnerships and pledges.
My first stop was Mattoon, IL. First Baptist Church of Mattoon, IL has become a second home to me! What a wonderful and supportive congregation for missions. I also had the opportunity to visit Charleston, IL FBC, Rotary Club of Mattoon, missions committees, and the ABW group, Can-Do-Circle. I had such a wonderful time visiting with old friends and making new one's. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
