Double your Gift this Christmas… posted by John Sorensen on Dec 14, 2017
With just weeks to go in 2017, you have an incredible opportunity—but it’s almost gone.
Because the clock is ticking, I’m asking you to act now—before it’s too late to see your gift DOUBLED by the extraordinary $250,000 Matching Challenge Fund. The deadline is December 31, so please respond now with your most generous gift.
Don’t miss your chance to make your gift do TWICE as much to reach people who need Jesus across the globe.
Just 14, she comes from a strict Hindu family and lives in a slum in one of India’s largest cities. But in this place of poverty, Pooja met Jesus after attending a Kid’s Club that uses EE’s tested and proven Hope for Kids training materials.
When her parents discovered her new Christian faith, they banned her from church—but not the Kid’s Club. Now she has recruited 35 of her friends—enough to form a new Kid’s Club where she is an assistant to the leader. Together, Pooja and her friends are learning about Jesus and how to share Him with others.
Thanks to friends like you, this precious young girl is growing in the Lord and is excited about her newfound faith in Jesus.
Pooja’s club is one of 86 reaching more than 4,200 children every week—99 percent of whom are from different faiths. And each club uses Hope for Kids. “Evangelism Explosion has been a great tool,” exclaims the director of the Kids Clubs. “The proof of that are the great testimonies of the children, their families, and closest friends.”
And Hope for Kids is just one part of what your support is doing around the world. Because of you, EE is equipping believers to reach moms and dads, students, senior citizens, grandparents, young professionals, and children all over the globe with the Gospel.
. . . With time running out in 2017, we have a long ways to go in meeting the $250,000 Matching Challenge and our financial goals for this year. The first quarter of our fiscal year was the worst we have ever seen — we only raised 10% of our overall need during that period. That makes this match more critical than ever. The December 31 deadline is almost here, and I don’t want to see this extraordinary opportunity slip away.
Your generosity—before the deadline—will make twice the impact at a time when so many still need to know Jesus died for them.
Jesus told you and me to “preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Yet, more than 2,000 years after Jesus entered the world in a humble stable, people still live and die without knowing He came . . . and why.
And thanks to friends like you, God is already using EE to reach millions. More than 10.7 million people last year alone professed faith in Christ through EE.
That means lives transformed and marriages saved. It means children raised in secure homes with loving parents. It means young people filled with purpose who lead productive lives and know how to share the Gospel. It means the hope of Heaven in the hearts of millions.
That’s what your gift now will do. But without the support of friends like you, none of this is possible.
Remember, now is the time to give, thanks to the $250,000 Matching Challenge Fund. Take advantage of this special opportunity to see your gift doubled and make your gift today.
Thank you, my friend, for the eternal difference you make as you pray and partner with Evangelism Explosion International. I am deeply grateful for you and wish you and yours a festive and bright Christmas celebration!
Rev. John B. Sorensen, D.D.
P.S. I urge you to take advantage of the $250,000 Matching Challenge before it expires on December 31. Make your gift now to see it DOUBLED and do TWICE as much to equip believers to share Jesus and reach the world. Billions need to hear. Your gift now does TWICE as much to reach them!
