Gifts so Far...
Right now evangelical Christians in Russia are in real need of encouragement and support, and it is moving how much has been given by churches that are neither large nor rich. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such sacrificial gifts! We know that some of the churches listed below collected special love offerings for this fund, and we are very encouraged by this.
Wonderful progress has been made by gifts given by the following believers and churches in the USA:
- Alabama $250
- Alaska $145
- California $500
- Georgia $5000
- Iowa $250
- Michigan $50
- Missouri $5000
- New York $1400
- Texas $200
- Virginia $650
- Washington $15,130
- Wisconsin $100
- Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church - Lexington, KY $1200
- Christ Presbyterian Church - Knoxville, TN $1,500
- Dominion Covenant Church, Louisville, NE $250
- First Presbyterian Church - Wichita Falls, TX $1503
- Providence Community Church Milton, FL $875
- Tri-cities Covenant Church, Somersworth, NH $2300
- Redeemer Presbyterian (Mission) Church, Soldotna, AK $1200
The goal is to raise $100,000 by August 1, 2016, for the general fund of SRS. We are asking the Lord for:
- $50,000 for a reserve fund (a first for SRS)
- $25,000 for our administrative support in the United States, that is our part-time communication helper and bookkeeper
- $25,000 for field ministry staff, salaries and travel (Blake & Cathy Purcell and Natasha Mironova)
We still need:
- One $20,000 gift
- Three $10,000 gifts
- Twenty-eight $500 gifts
As of July 28th, we have raised $48,000, praise God.
