IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

I hope this letter finds you in the midst of a peaceful season. A season where we are reminded of waiting…and the expectation of a coming Saviour!
I’ve got great news!
First, I so appreciate your continued prayers for New Dimensions Evangelism! This past year has been full of outreach events in; Texas, Wyoming, Montana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia, Illinois, and Ohio. Several of these states I visited more than once! We saw thousands attend events and hundreds of people made first-time decisions for Christ! Little children, teenagers, moms, dads, even grandparents! God’s Word does not return void!
I don’t have to tell you how vital our work is in today’s world, as families are under all kinds of attacks from an Enemy with many faces. As the media hits kids with messages contrary to God’s Word from every angle, the culture, in turn, absorbs these messages and fosters recklessness and entitlement instead of accountability and responsibility. Because of the friendship, many of us develop with the things of this world; there is an aura of uncertainty in our lives that leaves us thirsting for something stable and reliable. Something we hang onto…Some One who is not an illusion!
I wanted to make you aware that in the midst of all of this uncertainty, New Dimensions continues to offer the rock-solid message of God’s Truth that has been well-tested, and is well loved by people of faith and by those taking their first steps toward faith. We’re making plans for more options, better family resources, and a fresh vision sharing God’s Word in more churches trying to reach people of all ages with the truth of the gospel!
Here’s the good news: In 2015 we were up in monthly support, 53% over the previous year of 2014. Which was a tremendous blessing! And, thanks to an incredible supporter, just a couple of weeks ago, we will end the year 2016 in stronger financial shape in more than a decade.
However, we still need your ongoing prayer—and if God lays it on your heart to give financially, that would be such a huge blessing! NDE isn’t a “big” ministry—compared to others we are small…but doing BIG things.
This month, I am asking for your partnership in this vision! We know you get many requests for financial contributions. But, we feel privileged to have you come alongside our efforts for the days to come – because we believe God is leading us to fulfill his vision for our ministry.
If you’ve kept up with us in the past, you know that we have not spent much time or energy asking you for financial contributions – we trust in God to provide all that we need. The churches which sponsor a WFWE are never asked for a pre-determined amount of offering.
If in the past you’ve supported New Dimensions with a financial gift, I so appreciate that! Whatever offerings are given is all that we ask, so please pray about partnering with us financially this month with a one-time gift. Or—if God directs you, please consider giving monthly in 2017.
By partnering with us, you will help take our work of proclaiming the gospel message to more people in more places! We’re trusting God to put it in the hearts of people like you to make a difference for the future of families in our nation.
There’s a lot of talk about our future these days, but if we don’t empower the Future with Character and Faith, where will we be? My simple request is that you pray about how you might be able to help in our work. We’re praying, too, in faith that God has raised up some of our faithful partners, like you, to make a $2,500 or $1,000 gift in response to this letter. Others will be led to give $250, $100, or $25, but we receive it all as a blessing from the Lord!
Thank you in advance for asking God about making your best gift the ministry of New Dimensions today! Our promise is to keep you informed about how God is using your gifts in incredible ways to change our tomorrow today!
Sharing His Wonder,
