2013 Thank You Letter

Dear Faithful Friends,

“For as the rain comes down from heaven, and does not return back, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, so that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater; So will my Word be, that goes forward from my mouth, it will not return back to me void or empty, but it will accomplish that which I please, and it WILL prosper in the things I sent it to do.” (Isa. 55:10,11)

God’s Word, God’s will, and God’s gifts never return empty. As we have planted, given, and sown, so also shall we receive!! (Luke 6:38)

There is much that we are grateful for at Favor, as we come to a close of 2013 and look forward to a new year. Because of your faithfulness, God has richly provided for the transformation of thousands of lives.

Here are just a few of the areas in which we have seen God’s provision and fruitfulness, increase, and expansion of His Kingdom:

We are eternally grateful for you, our faithful partners that have stood by us and strengthened our arms, both through your prayers and your financial support. YOU, through the love of Jesus, have made the difference in so many lives! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

There is so much more still to do! So many more souls to be won! So much more to invest in for eternity… into the only things that will last forever: the souls of men and the Word of God!!  So many more ways to lay up our treasures in heaven and set our affection on things above!

 

We are praying for:

$20,000 to clear the financial needs for this last year

Our indigenous missionaries are serving on staff at Favor of God. They are sold-out and fruitful in the Lord’s fields of harvest. The greatest asset and most valuable treasure in the Kingdom building are God’s faithful leaders. These are our trained school teachers, children’s workers, Bible teachers, drivers, office help and accountants, evangelists, medical workers, cooks, guards, prison workers, pastors, prayer warriors, and church planters, farmers, and so many others.

We are believing God for:

200 partners that will stand with us for $100 a month this coming year

Prayerfully consider being a part of this growing army to reach souls, nations, and governments for the Kingdom of God. This is a gift that “keeps on giving,” as it multiplies into thousands of lives that are being transformed into fruitful disciples for the Kingdom of God. It is these monthly commitments that allow us to plan our outreaches, support the missionaries, plant churches, reach out into other nations, and continue ministry projects of all kinds.

 

Thousands of people have been brought into the Kingdom of God, loved, taught, trained, and discipled through your outstretched hands. Communities still need changing, lives are still waiting to be drawn to Jesus, and nations are still hungry for the Gospel.

You are a vital part of the Favor Team!

May God give you a wonderful Christmas season with your family and friends.

Lean hard on the Beloved!

 

With much love,

Carole and the Favor Family
