With thankful hearts, we report that APT Ministries has received a matching funds gift of $24,000 to purchase French Thompson Study Bibles. We praise God that this generous gift will cover our ministry’s projected costs for French bibles in 2017. Historically, one of the ongoing needs that APT Ministries has faced is for funding to purchase both English and French Bibles for the workshops we conduct each year. This gift and the matching challenge that comes with it allows us to start the year strong.
Matching Gift Challenge
The organization we received this gift from has challenged us to ask others to “match” this gift through additional giving to provide for all of the English Bibles we will need for our 2017 workshops. If the Lord blesses us to this extent, this would be the first time we would have funding in advance to purchase all of our Bibles for an entire year! Your financial contributions that are designated for English bibles will help us to meet this matching challenge.
More Bibles Allows Us to Train More Leaders
Having bibles on-hand in advance will help us to plan our ministry calendar with the confidence that all needed Bibles will be“on the ground” well in advance of our planned workshops. We will also be able to significantly (40%+) increase the number of pastors we train in 2017!
One of the great blessings in training pastor’s with the Thompson Study Bible is to see the expressions on their faces when they receive their very own Thompson Bible at the end of the workshop. Expressions of joy and gratitude, sometimes with overflowing tears, are common.
This Christmas is a reminder that “God is with us” in Jesus Christ! It is also the reminder of the greatest gift we have been given, eternal salvation through Jesus Christ. Every Bible awarded to a pastor in Africa is truly a “gift from God” to them as well.
