A Calvinist Helping Missions?

Dear Readers,

I still need your help in being sponsored and this is the last week!

This Friday, November 21st, I will be joining 30 other men to help raise money for the Sandy Springs Mission in Atlanta, GA.  I found out last week that this mission will most likely run out of money in March 2009.

What this mission does

Sandy Springs Mission ministers to children in our community by:

  • after-school programs (designed to help increase the literacy rate among low-income families)
  • helping these young people learn to
    – read
    – write
    – communicate effectively (to help them thrive and succeed in our society)
  • sponsors a summer camp for these children (for more productive and fun ways to spend their summer hours)

What about the Gospel?

Over 50 children in the summer of 2008 came to faith in Christ at Sandy Springs Mission. This type of ministry could not happen without the support of sponsors like you. For more information, go to www.sandyspringsmission.org and see the power of this ministry.

What are you sponsoring?

You would be sponsoring me in the Sandy Springs Mission Golf Challenge.  This is a charity event not just a guys golf outing where those with money pay for an overpriced round of golf and a chance to miss work!  Number one, I’m not in the “those with money” category.  Number two, I do get to miss work, but I get to fellowship with my pastor and others.

Bottom Line

This golf challenge is designed to help Sandy Springs Mission provide the funds necessary for critical support of what they do. I really believe in the ministry provided by Sandy Springs Mission.  My goal is to challenge friends like you to sponsor me for any amount whether is be $10 or $500, through which I hope to raise over $2000 for these great young people.

A Simple and Straightforward Request

Would you consider sponsoring me by filling out the enclosed sponsor form and returning it to me? It’s really amazing what a few people pulling together can accomplish.

You can download the pledge card here and email it to missionsgiving@gmail.com.

Thanks for your consideration!

In Christ,

Mark

P.S. After the event, you will receive a letter telling you how I did and where to send your sponsorship check.
