Emergency Measures Volunteers
The arts and sciences have their patrons. That is, people who generously support their favourite causes so that they can carry on. Some patrons give so generously that the arts world will name buildings after them.
At Western Tract Mission, Inc., we feel that we need some patrons to keep our general budget covered. We are not in a position to name new buildings after you, but if you really care about evangelism, we would challenge you to contribute to our general fund so that the basic expenses can be covered, and the mission work continue. Besides this EMV call to keep our finances in the black, we would be excited to see you set up a regular donation to come in. Ultimately, all our departments, Mailbox Club, Tracts, Scripture Signs, and even the web presence (near 0 cost), depend on the general fund to operate.
Pray and ask the Lord how you might serve by giving. That's ministry too!
Giving memorial gifts, or through naming Western Tract Mission, Inc., in your will, or through an annuity - these are all ways that you can have the joy of ministry by giving. For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God. (2 Cor. 8:3-5 NKJV)
