Greetings once again!
We are so thankful for all your support and love. We especially enjoy hearing from you and have a tremendous appreciation for your prayers and support. We know we wouldn't have been able to accomplish the work of serving God in the Philippines and representing you there if it were not for your generous and loving support of the mission God is doing around the world through International Ministries.
As you who are involved in American Baptist Churches know, October is when International Ministries promotes financial support through the World Mission Offering (WMO). They depend on your giving and you can be assured that gifts to the WMO go 100% to the work of International Ministries. Every dollar given is used to support International Ministries' budget to advance the work of the Lord throughout the world. As with many individuals and organizations, these are times of financial changes and challenges for International Ministries due to a declining stock market, a weak economy and sluggish charitable giving - among other things.
Please prayerfully consider making an extra generous contribution to the WMO this year. You will be blessed for having done so! For those who are reading this and are not in American Baptist Churches, you can send a check (marked for the ministry of Bob and Louise Meeks) directly to:
P.O. Box 851
Valley Forge, PA 19482-0851
Please keep on praying for us and for God's work around the world. Especially pray for:
- Increased giving to the World Mission Offering to meet current needs and to expand IM's global outreach.
- That even in the remembering of the events of September 11th, we might all pause to reflect on the changes in our world and realize the importance of sharing globally the hope found only in Jesus Christ.
With the love of Christ and in the power of His Word,
Louise and Bob
