but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
then king David rose to his feet and said, “hear me, my brethren and my people: I had it in my heart to build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and for the footstool of our God, and had made preparations to build it.
1 Chronicles 28.2
@calvaryhanford is bringing back layaway!
our desire is to partner together as a congregation with GFA to send physical and spiritual help to these communities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
set aside a dollar here, a fiver there and donate it @calvaryhanford with ‘GFA Layaway’ in the memo section of the check or donation envelope.
at the end of the year we’ll open up the Christmas catalog and send gifts and the Gospel to those who are in desperate need.
but we especially love working with this organization because at Gospel For Asia 100% of your donations go to the mission field.
in 2011,we were able to send more than $12,000 to Gospel For Asia which was used to build a church in the Punjab District of India. the building is now home to Believer’s Church Talwandi.
in 2012, we were able to pay for the digging and construction of 12 Jesus wells, which supply clean water to communities around India and serve as locations where the Gospel is shared.
in 2013, another $12,000 was collected and we were led to purchase items that help families make a living and provide income. we paid for 10 rickshaws, 8 motorcycles and 2 sewing machines that will be sent to families and missionaries in need.
in 2014, $15,300 was collected! we were able to pay for both compassion gifts and items for evangelistic outreach. we selected to pay for the drilling of a clean water well, 20 bicycles, 5 adult tricycles for disabled individuals, 10 BioSand clean water filters, 13 fishing nets, 10 mosquito nets, 10 outdoor toilets, 10 paddy threshing machines, 10 radios, 10 rickshaws and 10 tool sets, along with 1 generator, 1 LCD projector kit and 1 mobile P.A. system for village outreaches.
we have a chance to lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven while simultaneously reaching out to one of the darkest places in the world.
let’s lay up, reach out and be used by God to spread His love, truth and compassion around the world.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
