“Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” II Corinthians 9:10-12
As a result of your giving this past year to our undesignated Mission fund, we as a Mission Committee have been able to send extra money towards these projects both at home and on the foreign field. This list does not include all the gifts that you have given designated to specific missionaries and organizations.
As a result of your generous giving to our special project during the Foreign Mission Conference we were able to send $10,236 to Tanzania for Farming God’s Way (GMI-Grace Ministries International and GCDE-Grace Community Development and Education).
A big thank you to the generosity of the men at the Annual Men’s Steak Fry in August enabled us to send $1,770 to Jerry and Sandi Bomers for a special public ministry amplifier system.
In Home Missions you gave $500 to BDTLB (Bible Doctrines To Live By) so they could print Youth Salvation material; also $500 was given for camper scholarships (for youth from RCBC) to Grace Adventures.
Our Missionaries w/ Grace Ministries International: Jerry and Sandi Bomers (Paraguay) with $2,000 towards their purchase of a vehicle, $2,000 toward

All this would not be possible without your generous giving to the undesignated portion of the Mission fund! Thank you for your generous giving and partnership that is having an effect around the world!
