Each year, Brigada tries to raise a small budget of $17K to help with server costs, projects among unreached peoples, spreading the word about Brigada, and helping with the cost of our one salaried assistant. We only ask for help during the last 8 weeks of the year. Fortunately, friends like you have already given $10,084.11. What does this mean? It means we only need $7,035.89 to reach our current year’s budget. This could happen several different ways. If 71 people stepped up to the plate and sent a $100 gift, we’d be completely funded. Or, one motivated believer in world evangelism could give a $5000 gift, underwriting the cost of many of our readers in Global South lands where money is in short supply. It’s your call. Either way, this is the last official edition for 2013. We’ll keep the offering plate open for the next 3 editions, just in case you need to mail something. We need your help. Would you consider asking your family or church to make a generous gift this weekend? If so, we’d be very grateful. Just click “Donate” in the upper right corner, or, mail a check made payable to Team Expansion (Brigada), 13711 Willow Reed Drive, Louisville, KY 40299. Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so, for USA citizens, your gift to Christ through Team Expansion is tax-deductible. We’ll quickly send a thank-you note and receipt. We won’t add you to any mailing list unless you request it. Thanks for your prayers, your partnership, and your participation in the Brigada family!
