FaithWORKS Report [August 2012]


When we receive our missionaries’ monthly newsletters for publication in these Mission
Sheets, they are also posted immediately here on our website on the FaithWORKS blog page. When Mission Sheets is composed and sent to the printer, we also post the same copy in PDF on the FaithWORKS blog page. Look for it around the middle of the month and read your advance copy!

Roger and Julie Tate have lost their vehicle due to fraudulent registration processes long
before they obtained it. They have played by all the governmental rules and processed
their purchase through all the legal channels – but it has proven to be fraudulently
registered from its entry into Kenya and original registration. The government has
confiscated it and they are out of the money used to purchase it. They are in dire need to
replace it. Your designated contributions toward this need will be greatly appreciated.

You can read for yourself the history of these developments by going to their

Please be making your plans right now to give as generous and liberal Thanksgiving Offering as the Lord enables you. The needs are great and on-going…and God is faithful! Remember, when you support the General Fund of BFM, you are supplying the essential needs of 12 faithful missionary families to obey Jesus’ Great Commission to go into all the world, preach the Gospel, baptize those believers, establish New Testament Baptist churches, and teach those churches to believe and practice everything Jesus Christ has commanded us. You will not find anywhere on this planet more Scriptural, committed, and fruitful missionaries than those who serve in partnership with BFM.

Here are just some of God’s inspired instructions on giving:

1. Purpose in your heart what you believe God wants you to give [2 Corinthians 9.7]
2. Plan your giving and your gift well in advance of the occasion [2 Corinthians 8.10- 11; 9.2]
3. Trust God to give you something to give back to Him [2 Corinthians 9.8-11]
4. Lay something aside every week or month in prospect of the offering [2 Corinthians 9.3-4]
5. Give generously and hilariously…with thanksgivings to God [2 Corinthians 9.6-7]6. Give in obedience to God and His Gospel…and to express your love to Him [2 Corinthians 8.7-8; 9.13]
7. Give to God and His Glory [2 Corinthians 8.5, 9; 9.11-15]
8. Give for the telling of His Gospel in all the regions beyond you [2 Corinthians 10.16]
9. Give to Christ’s Gospel servants to be like God [3 John 5-7]
10. Give to participate and share in the fruits of the harvest [3 John 8; Philippians 4.17- 20]
