The results are in from the 40 Days of Prayer:
Friends want and need FUM as a resource to local churches and meetings.
Friends United Meeting is being called on to undertake wide-ranging leadership development in all of our mission fields, including North America. As a worldwide Quaker movement, FUM is building capacity for outreach, teaching and intervisitation that is increasingly vital as we move into the second decade of the 21st century.
FUM Friends are engaged around the world in important ministry that is impacting the world and making Christ’s kingdom visible. We are supporting the explosive growth of Friends in East Africa, providing for quality education in Palestine, and equipping Friends for mission in North America. These vital efforts can only be sustained through the generous support of Friends like you.
Give Now, Double Your Impact
To assist the general fund of FUM, generous Friends have pledged $45,000 to match donations received by June 30, 2013. During this period every dollar donated to FUM will be matched one for one. Raising $45,000, then, will mean FUM realizes $90,000 of contribution furthering the implementation of missions developed from 40 Days of Prayer and Day of Discernment. An additional $10,000 in unmatched contributions will power us to our ultimate goal of $100,000.
As FUM acquires the services of a new Global Ministries Director, Eden Grace, and embarks upon a newly energized strategic plan, there could be nor more opportune time to be a part of the mission. Whether the gift is $50 or $5,000, it will be doubled in impact. Whether donating online or by mail, please consider contributing to FUM by June 30th to take advantage of this generous opportunity. FUM extends its heartfelt gratitude to all who join this partnership.
