I have some very exciting news...If you have never given to SAT-7 before you can now QUADRUPLE the impact of your gift!! During this time when the global economy is suffering, members of the US Board of SAT-7 feel so passionately about the importance of SAT-7’s goals in 2009 that they will give three US dollars for the equivalent of every one dollar given to SAT-7 by someone who has not supported the ministry before. This offer is valid until January 15, 2010.
Why are they making this money available at this time? This is a year when many ministries and churches across the world are reporting their income falling dramatically, by as much as one quarter to one third. SAT-7 has also seen its income fall, though fortunately only by approximately 10%. But if this shortfall continues through the remainder of the year, SAT-7 will not be able to fulfill many of its strategic goals. These include developing a new reality TV series designed to dramatically grow the audience, making several new and important discipleship programs for young Christians, creating new TV programs for children, and many shows to strengthen emerging churches in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and Iran.
In addition to giving three dollars for every one dollar from new donors, the generous Board members have also pledged to double any additional gifts from people or groups who have already supported the ministry in the last year, and to triple any money that they may give that is over and above their previous regular donations. To summarize:
- Every dollar gift from a new donor to SAT-7 will become 4 dollars
- Every dollar gift given above a regular gift will become 3 dollars.
- Every regular dollar gift given between now and the end of 2009 will become 2 dollars
This is an opportunity we must not miss! You can also encourage your church to get involved in the annual SAT-7 Day of Prayer which will take place on November 1, 2009. Go to http://www.sat7.org/dayofprayer for more information. Many churches will be donating the offering they receive that day, money which can now be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.
Thank you for your gifts, your prayers and for telling others about what the Lord is doing through SAT-7! I look forward to seeing our goals for 2009 realized through this special matching-gift opportunity.
Yours in His service together,
