Family and Friends,
We trust that you had a wonderful, although perhaps atypical, Thanksgiving Day last Thursday! We were home with family and enjoyed our day immensely! There is much to be thankful for, in spite of this crazy year!! We are particularly thankful for our faithful supporters!!
We wanted you to know of the results of our four most recent training events (online due to the pandemic). In two The Gospel in Your Hand workshops we trained eighty-four church members. Of those, thirty-one went deeper in the additional four days of Explain the Gospel clinic training. The clinicians participated in on-the-job-training with trainer-mentors who made video calls to people needing to hear the Gospel. Thirty-five people heard a Gospel explanation and twenty-two received the gift of eternal life right where they were with EE team members who had explained the Gospel from right where they were. In other words, a video call made with a cell phone app connected four or more people, each in a different location. The clinicians were trained and more than half of those who heard the Gospel in the process made a decision to follow Christ. Praise the Lord! Please pray for four more training events scheduled this month!
Today, December 1st, is #GivingTuesday If this is a day in which you think about charitable giving for tax reasons, or just sense the Lord telling you to send a support gift for our family and ministry, you may take advantage of the opportunity by clicking anywhere in this email that you see #GivingTuesday The link will work today or any day that you wish to be taken to our secure website and giving portal. Thank you so much!! On that same page, you will find information about the 2020 CARES Act Charitable Giving Tax Incentives, i.e., special provisions during the pandemic to help you reduce your 2020 taxable income (AGI). Feel free to consult the page for that information, whether you plan to give at this time, or not.
Thankful for your prayers & partnership,
Robert & Mary Jo Foster,
Serving Evangelism Explosion-Brazil
