A note on the distribution of funds:

We much appreciate your gifts: but we should point out that spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by the Board of Governors. Each restricted contribution designated towards such an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the Board of Governors, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where needed most.


Giving is an act of faith, God the maker of heaven and earth does not count on the amount of money you are sowing but sees the heart.
I encourage you to be a Cheerful Giver.
