Help with the Practical Needs of Our Global Ministry Center

Untitled1­

Dear Partners & Friends,

Enemies are attacking our Global Ministry Center!!!

What an incredible gift this building has been for 19 years, especially to those of us who remember working in Bill & Karen Mills’ dark, damp basement. Our building is now the nerve center for a worldwide pastoral training ministry impacting 40+ countries and many thousands of pastors and churches. It is serving us well, BUT…

Untitled2Two “enemies”, Wear and Tear, have taken a toll on our carpeting. The building still looks new except for our stained, wrinkled, worn carpeting.

The Emerald Ash Borer is our other enemy. These Asian invaders have destroyed all of our ash trees. As you can see in the photos, the trees are standing on their last legs…they’ve got to come down and be replaced…soon!

Would you help this month by

  • Planting a new tree? $850 would cover removal and replanting of one new tree. We’re asking 6 of you to gift us with a new tree.
  • Replacing carpet? $14,000 would pay for the removal and replacement of 325 square yards of new carpet. At a cost of $43 per square yard, would you gift us 1, 2 or more carpet squares?

I realize that this isn’t as glamorous or exotic as digging a well in Africa or supporting an orphan in Burma, but these are still urgent needs.

As you consider upgrading your home or yard this summer, would you please include these LRI “home improvements” as well, so that our team might focus in the fall on equipping and encouraging pastors around the world to teach God’s Word with God’s heart?

Thank you in advance for your generous support of these very real, very practical needs.

With gratitude for your generosity,

Craig ParroCraig Parro

PS: Even if you can’t afford to plant a whole new tree or carpet a full room, please send a gift which, when combined with others, will get the job done!
