I know that as we have entered into 2020 we all are facing some unprecedented times but I would like to thank you for making 2019 such an amazing year. I am thrilled to share this good news report with you.
1 Chronicles 16:31 perfectly captures the past year of ministry. “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad, let them say among the nations the Lord reigns!”
People of the nations, cities, and villages around the world saw this ring true this year, thanks to your support. Over 300,000 people experienced the truth of this scripture through gospel outreach, evangelism, education, empowerment, or refugee ministry.
In this report you’ll find a lot of numbers. Each one is meaningful, but there’s a certain number that shows what wonderful generosity you showed to International Needs. That number is $200,000.
For many years we’ve been consistent and stable in the amount of funds we’ve been able to send overseas for ministry. You made it possible to send over $2 million for ministry this past year. That’s an increase of more than $200,000 compared to past years.
I hope that news excites you as much as it excites me! You made it possible to advance the gospel in more places. To put more community workers in place who evangelize in some of the hardest-to-reach places on earth.
You helped impoverished people in desperate situations. You provided material and spiritual support to refugees, trapped in a foreign land.
You trained the next generation of Christian leaders through education and mentorship.
Most of all, you made it possible for people to say “yes” to a relationship with Jesus Christ. And that’s what we’re all about here at International Needs.
You will see that theme running through the pages of this report. Sharing Jesus Christ. Everything we do at International Needs centers around giving people the opportunity to say “yes” to Jesus. You are one of the special people who knows how that changes everything. And you are one of the special people who made it all possible. Thank you.
I hope you enjoy reading this report, seeing what the Lord did through your support and the faithful work of Christian partners around the world.
Above all, I hope you feel inspired and fulfilled. I hope you get a sense of what an incredible difference you’ve made all over the world in 2019.
We are already in the midst of an amazing 2020 and that wouldn’t be possible without you. Your faithfulness and generosity means so much. Thank you with all my heart.
