Appeal from Langham Foundation (2020-03-13)
|[ 請按這裡看中文版 ]||13 March, 2020|
Dear Langham friends,
This is the time of the year when I usually write to the Langham Foundation friends and supporters around the world. We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for your interest in our work and faithful prayers support.
In spite of the challenges we are currently facing, I am delighted to share with you that all three Langham programmes of Scholarships, Literature and Preaching have continued to thrive beyond expectations. We are now providing scholarships for 15 theological students in Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. The preaching movement is growing steadily under the leadership of a capable local coordinator who, not only organised the annual preaching seminar but also started 6 preaching fellowships in the big country. The highlight of the year must be given to the one-volume Chinese language Bible commentary which we have initiated. It is now making good progress with more than 40 theologians and scholars indicating an interest to participate.
Financially, we are facing a huge deficit due to the combination of social unrest last year and the threat of the virus outbreak this year. Langham Foundation would need to raise at least HK$2.5 million before June in order to pay our operational expenditure and meet our ministry commitments for 2020. I am therefore appealing to you for your prayers and generosity. If you agree with Uncle John (Stott)’s vision on investing and equipping Christian leaders in the developing world so that they can grow the church of God to maturity and be ready for mission, we would very much like to ask you to consider a love gift.
For this purpose, I am attaching a copy of the Donation Instruction Form which you can indicate in the form how you would like to give, by cheque, credit card or bank transfer. Should you wish to contribute by credit card and would like the gift to be within the current year for tax deduction purpose, please scan the completed form to me at email@example.com, copied to the fundraising manager, Ms Karen Yeung at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax to us at (852)3005-4498 before 30th March (Monday).
Once again, we are grateful to you and to God for your generous contribution. May the Lord bless you for your love and faithfulness.
With blessings as always,
encl. Donation Instruction Form
Our God is able to bless you abundantly,
so that in all things at all times,
having all that you need,
you will abound in every good work …
You will be enriched in every way so that
you can be generous on every occasion,
and through us your generosity
will result in thanksgiving to God.
