Helping With God’s Work in Belize
I have spent the whole week doing shameless self-promotion trying to get people to vote for Dad in the Middle and Kimdin1124 in the Kidmin March Madness competition. Today, I wanted to take a step back and encourage you to help someone out who really needs it! Michael Chanley, the founder of CMConnect.org, announced a plan sometime last week for the children’s ministry community to come together as one to support a worthy cause. This opportunity will raise funds for a very worthy missionary effort in the country of Belize. David and Karen Rhodes are founders of Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus and they are working diligently to reach the children of Belize with the Gospel of Christ. They need a van to take their ministry to the next level. The goals of this effort is to raise enough money to purchase a van for the ministry and provide other support. You can help out by clicking the picture to the left and purchasing a square (or squares) on the van. All proceeds are going to the ministry. Here is more about the effort from Michael:
Our goal is to raise $65,000 (less than $10 per CMConnect member). This money will do a lot of work to support this mission:
$35,000 is a brand new 15 passenger van
$7,000 will ship it to Belize and cover the taxes, fees, etc.
$23,000 will send a small army of 8-10 Children’s and Family pastors to Belize to do training.
We are praying to buy a van and fill it with blessings!
