Hat in hand

I avoid throwing out requests for money to the wind. Today I’m making an exception.

ThermometerApr. 28 I travel to the US to speak at the May Missionary Retreat in Hamilton, Ala., my second time to serve as a speaker for this event. It will be held at Maywood Christian Camp May 1-3.

I accepted by faith without having the money in hand. The organizers do not help on expenses. I’ve paid the air fare ($1104) out of my pocket. Though it’s not a situation of taking bread from the baby, there will be some projects and work left undone if these funds are not replaced.

If you’d like to help with this expense, there’s a PayPal button at the lower right of this page. Or you can send a check made out to Center Hill Church of Christ (FOR: Brazil Mission Fund) to P.O. Box 1269, Paragould, AR 72451. (Be sure to let me know so I can acknowledge it.)

If you donate $50 or more, I’ll send you free a copy of Tim Hall’s book, Discovering the Kingdom of God.

Twenty-two people are needed at $50 a whack; 44, obviously, for half that.
