Many, if not all of you, know that for the last 6 years, George and I have spent significant time with the Lutheran Church in Cambodia. One of the Pastors we have come to know and love is Pastor Samuel in Siem Reap. As of February 2017, we have had the pleasure of getting to know Pastor and his family on a daily basis as we are working solely with him.
Pastor has four preaching stations in the communities around Siem Reap, one of the poorest provinces in the country. However, he has been able to purchase a piece of property upon which he hopes to build a shelter to house the Lutheran Church in Snor, Cambodia. But this last rainy season there was a significant set back. Because of very heavy and late rains, the church property has suffered significant erosion. The community cannot afford to make the repairs before the upcoming rainy season without your help.
In order to do this, we have created a crowd funding project, “How Firm a Foundation” with We Raise, part of Wheat Ridge Ministries.
There are two things that we ask you to do:
1. Pray how God would use you to help this struggling church. The minimum donation is one dollar made with your credit or debit card. In the event that we do not make the primary goal of $9650, your card will not be charged. This project will only run for 45 days, so you are not making an obligation beyond that. It is a one time project. The details of the project are on the We Raise web site which you can access by clicking on Pastor, his family, and George below.
2. The second thing we would ask is that you help us spread word of this project on your social media pages. Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc. The principle of crowd funding is many people giving small amounts when summed together can accomplish great goals. George and I will receive nothing from any donations through this project. So your help in spreading the need is utterly important.
May God bless you all for your help! Thank you.
