Hi, Calvary Hill family and friends! Rather than emailing you our typical Friday Calvary Hill Happenings newsletter, this week we'd like to extend an opportunity to offer critical help to our community. Here's a quick video from Pastor Brent explaining how we can all get involved:
Thank you so much to all those who have been donating toward our $42,140 Kingdom Builders Plan in addition to your regular tithes and offerings! Our prayer has been to be able to meet this goal for 2020 in spite of not being able to meet for services during this time. We look forward to making an eternal difference around the world as well as close to home.
Below is a break down of our original Kingdom Builders goal, however, as was mentioned by Pastor Brent in the video above, all donations made toward Kingdom Builders throughout the whole month of April will be designated towards assisting our medical community as they serve those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
$42,140 Original 2020 Giving Plan Breakdown:
$5,000 - Teen Challenge: provides 2 beds
$2,500 - ForDignity: 2500 “Shine” books given in safe-houses and in the women’s prison systems in Philly, South Jersey, Mississippi ("Shine" is the most requested book in the prison system outside of the Bible)
$1,000 - Chi Alpha Retreat (strategic retreat for growth and university campus evangelistic planning)
$5,000 - Missionary couple to the Middle East (names to remain confidential for safety)
$5,000 - Latin America - Missionaries Bryan and Rachael Correia: Calvary Hill hopes to purchase the land for a church planting project in Columbia in an area riddled with terrorism and high drug trafficking
$5,000 - Africa - Calvary Hill hopes to renovate a church in Burundi (3rd poorest nation in Africa) bringing it up to code so the government won’t close them down (literally saving a church); no Bible schools in Burundi; General Supt, Pastor Jerome Ndayisaba, is desperately trying to build the church there; could actually build a church there for $10,000
$5,000 - Europe - Missionaries Mike and Ana Dascalescu are bringing the gospel to cities on the Eastern border (many Turkish there); extremely poor; rock goes deep into their soil and there is no water; poverty is overwhelming; church members are baptized in so little water they can't get fully wet; water brings life, hygiene, prosperity, and health; the Dascalescu's are planting churches and hope to dig wells; Calvary Hill hopes to help purchase a well-digging machine to dig multiple wells! Total cost of the machine is $25k
$5,140 - Asia - Mission of Mercy: Calvary Hill hopes to feed 10,000 meals + 3 Children to receive cleft palate surgery + 2 children to receive a full year of leukemia treatments
$1,000 - Speed the Light - Primarily towards Convoy of Hope and water wells in Africa
$5,000 (plus all donations made towards Kingdom Builders during the month of April) - Emergency disaster relief due to the COVID-19 pandemic
$2,500 - Marketing into our community letting them know we are here for them
70 (Calvary Hill giving units) x $50 /mo. = $3,500 x 12 = $42,000. Let's do this!
