Missionaries say ‘thanks’ for gifts
Mar 27, 2012

Southern Baptists continually pray for, participate in, and give generously to North American mission efforts. Read what some of the Week of Prayer missionaries have to say about the blessings that came from those gifts:

I was thinking about the freedom I have to meet with unchurched people at Starbucks, celebrate birthdays with apartment managers, and coach guys who are passionate about fulfilling their ministry purpose by leading a church. Then I realized very little of that would happen without you and your church giving through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Your gifts afford me the living and thus the time to invest in these people's lives. You are helping me give back and 

develop the next generation of leaders. I want to take this time to personally thank each of you who has missions so deeply embedded in your soul that you give your dollars to support a work you may never see. People are being changed for eternity, hope for the hopeless, peace for the restless, and Jesus is being lifted up because you are cooperating together with us in the field. Thank You!!!

We deeply express our gratitude to North American Mission Board for featuring us and our ministry in the missionary week of prayer, 2009.  We are thankful to NAMB for their prayer and financial support.  We know all of our Southern Baptist churches in North America will be praying for us and NAMB is acting as a channel of blessing for us. 

We praise God for NAMB and all of its stuffs for their great encouragements. 

We hope NAMB will continue their support to us for our frontiers missions work in New England.

Dear Friends,

What a joy and privilege it is to serve as a North American missionary. Because of your financial gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, you provide opportunities for my wife and I to assist in the task of reaching lost souls with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for all you do!

Dear Friends,

I wish to take this opportunity to thank Southern Baptists for your prayers, and gifts through the Cooperative Program, and through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. These offerings and prayers enable me to do what the Lord has called us to do in the way we do it. It is indeed my privilege to serve the Lord in this way!
