Don’t miss this chance to double your gift! posted by John Sorensen on Jun 21, 2016
I wish you could see the reports that cross my desk . . . some from closed countries. They tell of soaring ministry growth worldwide, of people learning to share the Gospel and leading others to faith in Christ. Thanks to friends like you, God is using EE to win more people than ever before to Jesus – a staggering 10 million last year alone.
But because you are a good friend and partner, I also need to tell you that June is a critical month for this ministry.
Our fiscal year ends on June 30 – just a few weeks away – and, frankly, we now face a difficult budget shortfall. One that could slow our momentum unless we close the gap and end this fiscal year strong. That is why I am asking you to send your most generous gift today.
And I have some very encouraging news.
Generous friends of Evangelism Explosion have stepped forward with an amazing $150,000 Fiscal Year-End Matching Challenge Fund. As a result, every gift made by midnight on June 30 will be matched – dollar for dollar – up to $150,000.
You can literally have your support doubled. Your donation of $100 grows to $200, $150 will turn into $300, and $35 automatically becomes $70 to equip believers to bring the Gospel to lost men and women.
With your partnership, we can unlock the $150,000 Matching Challenge and raise a total of $300,000. But you must act right away because the Matching Challenge expires at midnight on June 30.
Let me tell you why your generosity is so urgently needed. By God’s grace and because of friends like you, we saw more than 10 million people come to Christ through EE last year, as I mentioned above. But this year we’ve set our sights higher.
Let that soak in. That’s more people than live in New York, America’s largest city. And your gift right now – doubled up to $150,000 – will make a real and immediate difference in achieving this New York-sized goal. But if we fail to end the fiscal year strong, our accelerated pace may falter and this critical objective may be missed.
I know you don’t want that to happen. That’s why I am asking you to take advantage of this exciting matching gift opportunity to double your gift before it’s too late.
Let me remind you that EE is one of the best investments you can make to reach the world for Jesus. During 2015, we saw one person make a profession of faith for every $1.21 given to the ministry.
That is almost unheard of in the world of missions. By God’s grace, your gift to EE is helping to ful ll the Great Commission. And now you can double your impact and do twice as much to reach the world for Jesus because of the $150,000 Fiscal Year-End Matching Challenge Fund.
But only if you contribute before midnight on June 30.
Your gift now will help make it happen. Thank you, my friend, for your partnership in reaching the world for Jesus.
Sincerely in Christ,
John B. Sorensen President
P.S. With just weeks to go before the fiscal year ends on June 30, funding is falling behind and I am urgently asking for your support today. Your gift now will help close the gap and win a record 11 million people to Jesus in 2016. And your donation – postmarked by June 30 – will be doubled, dollar for dollar, up to $150,000. Time is short. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity now to multiply your gift and reach the world for Jesus. Please give today.
