The 'Widow's Mite' Project
A word from Jim,
We understand that many people's mind are full of new concerns now, so we wanted to think of a way of support that would be less likely be a difficult burden in these trying times.
The 'Widow's Mite' came to mind.
Mk 12: :41-44 - He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small bronze coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
God has blessed us with a beautiful new property, certainly above our expectations. More than a large gift during difficult times, we would be honored if you felt inclined to give a widow’s mite.
It would be helpful for bookkeeping purposes, if you might consider being a part of an auto-pay “Widow’s Mite” program, perhaps through your bank for credit card company. If you can manage a “small” gift of $5 per month, it will be crucial in helping us continue our regular maintenance and minor projects in the four “Secrets of the Seas Courtyards.” Once they are completed sufficiently for teaching purposes, we look forward to being able to have our first small groups visiting the Encounters in Archaeology museum to learn about the four seas of the Bible, as soon as conditions permit later in the year.
If you join this program, being an archaeological museum, we would enjoy expressing our appreciation by sending you a “widow’s mite” replica coin.
