Thank You, Subscribers 😊
I’d like to write “thank you” to all the churches and individuals who subscribe to my art. I really appreciate the support. As well as enabling me to purchase materials, pay web fees and taxes, and update equipment, you allow me to support several important non-profit groups. Those include my church, but I’d also like you to know some of the ones I choose to help.
The first is Sunset Gap, which is a much-needed ministry and mission in the Appalachians near to where I live. The Gap provides food for over 250 families each week, as well as maintaining a thrift store, and helping the local people throughout the year with education, programs, and counsel. It’s a wonderful mission that you can read about here on its Facebook page: Sunset Gap.
Another mission I support is New Hope for Guatemala. It is a unique mission that focuses on education for young children and youth in Guatemala. Several schools are funded and staffed by the mission which has an amazing graduation rate of its students. It is led by one of my friends in ministry, Andrew Lovell, and he is dedicated to educating the young people under his care in order to help them rise up from poverty and establish themselves in worthwhile careers.
You can read about this great ministry on its website: New Hope for Guatemala.
Another non-profit I regularly support is KIVA. This organization provides loans to farmers, groups, and store owners all over the world. The loans are sponsored by donors and provide the seed money for old and new businesses to develop and start-up in deprived areas of the world. It enables the recipients to pay back the donations on a monthly basis over a pre-agreed time (usually 12-18 months) which means that they receive help but also maintain their dignity.
You can find more information on the website at Kiva.org.
So, your subscriptions help many people and I am grateful for the opportunity your support gives to me in giving back to others. God bless you all.
