We are excited to announce that as a district, we generously gave $78,683 towards the GCF in December! Wow. And more than $500,000 was donated through the Year End Offering by all Alliance churches to support the 60 workers. Praise God!Now that 2019 has arrived, we are also thrilled to announce that the New England district has multiple new workers preparing to go overseas.
We currently have 60 vetted, trained, and prepared international workers ready to go out into the field next year. This is a record number for us. Twice as many as the C&MA has had in previous years. Praise the Lord! Historically, the number of workers has been on a decline, and led us to pray for God to provide the people. He answered. And He came through abundantly.Now the challenge. We need the funds to send these workers. The Alliance is currently behind budget in our Great Commission Fund. To be exact, we are $1.2 million behind this fiscal year. Now our prayer is for the Lord to provide the financial resources so that every one of those 60 workers can be sent.
