May Mission Month is just around the corner.

As a community of faith this is one of the best examples of our value of being Big-Hearted. We will once again be supporting three partner organisations alongside our own missionaries. Projects from Baptist World Aid, TEAR, and Mother’s Heart (Cambodia) will be introduced over the month of May.

Our target is again around the $200,000 mark and I’d like to encourage you to prayerfully consider your contribution to this appeal in 2023. In a period of time when many of us are experiencing a tightening of the purse strings due to inflation and higher interest rates, it is especially important for us to practice being Big-Hearted.

As I do every year I want to remind you about what “success” looks like in May. First, that we meet our target. Second, that we have more contributors than last year (almost 200). Third, that our giving be above and beyond our regular giving.

I’m looking forward to what God will do in our community of faith as we seek to be generous and to the good that our financial gifts will make on the ground in the lives of so many people.
