Urgent Financial Need – Open Letter to Friends of Open Arms
Dear Friend of Open Arms,
We are into the final stretch of 2014 and it has been a year full of blessing to be sure. We have seen more communities and children given access to Open Arms programs in Brazil and the United States. Today we have nine (9) full-time “Agents of Hope” on the front lines working directly with children, their families, and the local church to build sustainable, gospel based outreach ministries. In the 8 years since we began, we have developed time tested teaching material, volunteer training programs, and a biblically based strategy that have proven successful in community after community. Open Arms is poised for even more rapid growth in 2015, but we still face a major challenge.
While we have had tremendous success on the field this year, we have struggled both at home and in Brazil to raise the needed funds to maintain that forward momentum. As we head in to the Fall the need has become critical and so we are reaching out to you, our friends and supporters, to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift toward helping supply Open Arms’ team of missionaries in the field with everything they need to continue reaching, teaching, and blessing children and communities in the name of Jesus. We have an immediate and urgent need to raise $40,000 in order to meet all of the Outreach Mission needs for the remainder of this year. That may seem like a large number, but every one time gift or monthly recurring gift, no matter the size, gets us closer to that goal. Please consider standing in the gap with us today, shoulder to shoulder, for our missionaries in the field. We ask that you would also consider forwarding this to any family, friends, or colleagues that you believe share your vision for reaching children with the gospel message of hope and a future.
