As always, we are humbled by your generous support for Perception Funding, both prayerfully and financially, supplied through your friendship, as we serve the Lord together. As the end of 2016 approaches, we would like for you to praise God with us for the many ways He has used Perception this past year.
Because of your gifts, here is what we have accomplished in 2016:
• For every $1 given to Perception Funding we raised $12.95 for our Ministry Partners
• 18 ministries in 14 countries are fully funded through our sending initiative, Go.Serve
• 22 people were sent on short-term missions in 7 different countries
• Over $940,000 has been raised this year for our Ministry Partners so far
As our ministry continues to grow it is a blessing to have experienced staff! Melissa Kelly, our Web Developer, has been with us for a year now. Her knowledge and experience in the tech world helps us excel in a fast moving part of ministry. Joy Klee, our Financial Operations Coordinator, is able to send money all over the world in quick order to fund important projects. And Shilo Carr, our Communications Coordinator, helps keep all our projects moving forward while helping us stay organized!
We are glad to keep going in this direction, glad to be doing this work, because we get to see lives being changed. We get to see people all over the world getting their human needs met - needs of hunger, medical attention, educational access, and employment. Most importantly, though, we are see people being introduced to God through relational ministries that are able to pour truth, love, and compassion into their lives because of the services we provide.
As this year is coming to a close, please prayerfully consider how you can give to impact our ministry and many other ministries around the world. Your special gift will give us a significant boost as we close out the year and set our course for 2017. We have enclosed a pledge card and return envelope with this letter. You can also visit give.perceptionfunding.org to give online or to learn about all the other ways you can give.
As the Christmas season begins, we at Perception Funding see so much to be thankful for, and we are encouraged by you and your heart for this ministry!
