They're here!

The Amazing Grace DVDs--all 880 pounds of them--arrived just in time for VBS this week at GBC (that explains some of the "different" attire of some of the young people in the pic; they are helping to depict Pilgrim's Progress).

Though we have still not reached our goal of $20,000, we are well on our way (with a sizable portion of the $3000 in matching gifts still available). Today many of our young people spent hours preparing mailing envelopes that will be used to mail the DVDs. I will let you know when they actually start being distributed.

I have been very encouraged by the number of people who have contacted me indicating that they are praying for this project. Let's join together in asking the Lord to use the teaching from His Word and insights from church history to encourage Baptist pastors and churches throughout the state of Florida.

Update and opportunity to double your gift

The DVDs were delivered yesterday and are awaiting being packaged and mailed over the next two weeks. Volunteers are lining up to help with this significant task. Once we get the most accurate records available to us and have the funds available, we will start putting them in the mail.

As of last week, we have $7,000 of the $20,000 needed. The $5000 matching gift has been met and we anticipate that check in the next week or so, raising the total to $12,000. Since announcing the provision of another $2000 matching gift last week, an additional $1000 matching gift has been offered.

What that means is that if you missed out on the the first "double-your-gift" opportunity, you still can see that happen by giving now and having your gift matched, up to $3000.

You may mail your check to Founders Ministries (POB 150931, Cape Coral, FL 33915) or you may donate online using the link below.

Please continue praying for this project. God willing, the DVDs will start landing by the end of this month.

New matching gift opportunity!

The $5000 matching gift from Riverbend Church has been matched as of last weekend! That means that $10,000 of the needed $20,000 has been raised for the Florida Baptist Truth Project.

An additional $2000 matching gift has recently been offered by supporters of this project. The DVDs are supposed to arrive sometime next week. Please pray that we will be able to secure all of the mailing information in a timely fashion to get these in the mail as quickly as possible.

Continue also to pray that the needed funds will be given to send this resource out to all the Southern Bapist pastors and denominational workers in the state of Florida.
