An online bulletin board of "Fireside International"

Money is still trickling in and the trip has been scheduled.

"Taking Stock..."
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of a small number of people, a beautiful camera has been purchased and the vision of Fireside International is about to unfold in full-force. Adrian and I are absolutely humbled and honored to have been trusted with such a vision and the equipment to back it up. Thanks to all who have given and are still planning on giving.

"More to do..."
Funds are still needed. Make no mistake... every tiny little bit DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Someone gave thirteen dollars the other day. What a HUGE blessing that was! If more of God's people gave just thirteen dollars, there would scarce be a needy person among us.

"Making cents..."
Please, now more than ever, dig deep and consider what gift you can give. 5 bucks. 10 bucks. 20 bucks. It ALL helps more than you can know. Here's an idea.

For 5 bucks, we can put some gas in the truck, which will help us to reach a city that was devastated by the Hurricane.
For a little less than 10 bucks, we can buy one videocassette which allows us to document up to 83 minutes of footage.
For 20 bucks, we can feed the crew, or the Haitians, or pay an interpreter, etc.

"How to pray..."
Please pray for protection for the families that we are leaving behind with this trip. The enemy of our souls does attack home the hardest during these sorts of excursions. It's probably because our enemy knows how powerful the home can be at dictating the direction of our lives. As one comedian put it, "Happy wife... happy life."

Of course the wives and loved ones of those who are going on the trip are completely supportive. I don't mean to imply that they feel a huge sacrifice is being made. But attacks (especially those that are significant) can do a lot to work on a person's motivation. Pray for strength and resolve at home.

"In closing..."
On behalf of the suffering human beings who will directly benefit from your generosity, we say "thank you" and that we greatly appreciate your consideration in the matter at hand.

To make a donation (if you haven't done so already) please contact Ray Renner by phone at (765) 215-0180. It doesn't mean you have to have the money to us by then, but knowing what your involvement will be can help us better plan. Again, remember that all donations are tax deductible and April is closing in fast!

May God truly bless whatever you can do.

In Christ's Service,
Luke and Adrian Renner
