December 1999 Update

What an encouragement 1999 was to be a part of the impact Executive Ministries is making in changing lives throughout the Chicago area. Because of a caring business associate, a man was invited to a Straight Talk breakfast. As a result he began attending a Bible discussion group where in the second week he prayed to receive Christ. He said, “I had all these questions. Thank you for helping me understand”. After a follow-up appointment with someone who had requested more information, he confessed, “I’m not ready to make a decision yet but I am willing to investigate Christianity further”. Today he attends a Bible discussion group on a regular basis.

These are just some of the stories of how God is changing lives. Can you envision a future with a shift in our society and culture toward biblical ethics and values? To effectively spread the gospel amongst the influencers in our communities we need your help. We are currently in need of an additional amount of $28,800 to meet our year 2000 budget. Will you partner with us in the coming year to reach executives and the leadership community for Christ?

Would you prayerfully consider giving a special gift so that we can continue to minister in an undistracted manner? Now would be a good time to do so and take full advantage of the substantial tax savings available to charitable givings (see back side). If it would be of benefit to you to contribute gift assets in the form of appreciated securities please contact us for the process in doing so.

If your are able to give such a gift, please make your tax deductible check payable to “Campus Crusade for Christ” and return it in the enclosed envelope, along with the response slip. Campus Crusade will then credit our account and mail you a receipt.

The “needs” and “opportunities” are plentiful and we believe we know your heart well enough to know that we share a mutual interest in bringing the truth to those who desperately need it. Together, we serve a great, good, holy, sovereign and gracious God. We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate you, your prayers and interest in this ministry.

Sherri and I pray for God’s abundant blessings over your business, employees and your family at this most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of Christ. May you experience joy and peace in the midst of His season!

“Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel…Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should” (Ephesians 6:19-20)
