We are now in fundraising mode as we travel and visit our supporting churches. There have been some changes in our financial support structure. Costs of gone up and a number of our supporters have died over the past few years. To get us back by June we are seeking one time gifts from friends like you. There is a need of $16,000 in additional support for 2018.
Please consider prayerfully giving a gift this year to our ministry. Our mission will take checks or online gifts. To give online use this link Gifts For Patton, Wayne & Ellen .
To send a check use this link How To Donate. Please keep us in your prayers.
The call of the missionary, to raise funds so that they can live on a foreign field to bring the Good News to the lost. January of 2018 we will be searching for new supporters and financial backers to our ministry. First, we would like to ask you to bath this endeavor with prayer before we even start. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”Ephesians 6:12. This time we are looking to set up small group visit in peoples home. So we will be looking for people willing to host us as we make trips around the country to visit our supporting churches. Pray for this endeavor.
For those of you who have not keep up with us, Ellen has been in the states for most of the year for medical reasons. Wayne has been batching it while in Brazil by himself. This has made it an expensive year for us both in a personal cost and ministry finances. This year has taken a toll on our ministry fund. As we head into the end of the year, we find our ministry reserve funds shrinking. So we could use some help by individuals making one-time donations. Please, prayerful considering making an end of year donation to our ministry fund. You can use your credit card at this link (just select “Patton, Wayne & Ellen”) or mail a check. To mail a check use this link. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
The foundation of our ministry is the individuals that stand behind us, that means you. Prayer is the first and most important part of this foundation we are standing. The prayers of the saints are a sweet-smelling savor unto the Lord. This is why we try and communicate with the people praying for our ministry. Now there seems to be a new building block that needs to be added to our ministry, that is a Facebook Engagement Team. For years Facebook has been a communication tool we have used to share our prayer request and the successes of our ministry. That communication channel is now under threat because of changes in the rules of how Facebook fills its news feed. Now we need your help more than ever to make our ministry successful.
Please consider taking an active role in our ministry by joining our Engagement Team. It only takes a few moments of your time when you log onto Facebook. We have put a short video together to explain what we need in more detail. Watch our video then drop us a Facebook message if you can help us out.
