Christmas outreach: If you live in the GTA, you need to give to and be a part of this

George Verwer has given me about 750 life-changing books that will go out at the various meetings I will take in October and November. He has agreed that all of the funds raised through the sale of these books (which will be sold on an any-donation basis) will go towards the following project:

Christmas outreach
"The Jesus Movie" is the most-watched movie in history. According to jesusfilm.org, there have been over 6 billion viewings of this movie since 1979; and 200 million have made a decision for Christ after watching the film.

The Jesus DVD is the Jesus Movie's most powerful form because it contains the Jesus Movie in 16 languages - including Arabic and the other main languages spoken in the Muslim world.

I am fired up about this project and would like to invite you to join me in giving to it and spreading the word. Also, if you'd like to help distribute the DVDs, email me.

The cost: CDN$3/package. 10,000 Christmas packages: CDN$30,000. This is not my estimate; this is the official figure for this project.

Trusting God for $30,000
Through our friends and networks, I wonder if God will give us the pleasure of raising $15,000 of the $30,000 needed for this project by November 31; and the full $30,000 by December 31.

It may be a small start, but the first $600 has already been raised.

Now, if you'd like to give to this project--"Christmas outreach"--you can do so and give a tax-deductible receipt. If you come to any of my meetings in October and November, drop money in any form in the "Christmas outreach" box at the book table. Or, if you can't make it to any of my meetings, email me for details (you can get a tax receipt).

This is serious business, but to make it more fun, I have set up a "Christmas outreach" Giving Meter to the right of this blog. After each meeting, I will update it to let you know how much has been given towards the project, and how on-target we are to reach the November 31 goal of $15,000 and the December 31 goal of $30,000.

Important: If you decide to give to this project in a way other than through one of my meetings (the funds from which will automatically be counted towards our goal), please let me know and I'll add the amount you've given to the total.

Woohoo!

If you want more information about this, or want to get involved, email me. My email address is in the right column of this blog.

A prayer. Lord, we commit this whole project into your hands. We pray even now for the people who will receive these Christmas packages. We pray now that you will prepare hearts. In Jesus' name. Amen.
