Going on Mission with Richy
Greetings and grace to you in the name of Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God for your faithfulness to Redeemer and her ministry. And it brings me great joy to share with you an opportunity we have to partner with one of our own and a need far away from us. As you may know, Richy will be on mission for a couple of weeks in the state of Washington serving with Sacred Road Ministry while serving the people of the Yakama Native American Reservation. You can view their promotional video here.
This mission project is, of course, partially to fulfill requirements for his Beeson Divinity School education. However, for Richy it is much more. While he had numerous options for fulfilling this part of his education, he chose Sacred Road Ministry because of his longing to touch young people’s and children’s lives and to explore the world of mission work.
The good news for us at Redeemer is that we have the privilege of being a part of this work. Certainly, we are grateful for Richy’s ongoing ministry to us through music, as well as his leadership through a small group and in other capacities. Now we can extend our gospel ministry through Richy by investing in this mission project.
We can invest in this project in a couple of ways. First, and foremost, is commitment to praying for Richy while on mission. Specifically, praying that the Lord will be with him as he serves and will work through him to touch these children’s lives. Also, that the Lord will minister to his heart concerning future church work and ministry. And don’t forget that not only are we partnering to pray for Richy, we must also partner to pray for Kassidy, that the Lord will watch over her and minister to her heart while Richy is away. Will you commit to praying for Richy and Kassidy during this time? Please, let them know.
Not only can we partner through prayer, but we can also partner by financially investing in this young family’s life. The estimated cost of this mission venture is $3,000.00. These monies will cover costs such as room and board, airfare, as well as offset some of Richy’s wages from his music lessons (he will be unpaid for a couple of weeks). Can we count on you to be a part of this mission financially? No amount is too small or too large. Thank you in advance.
We have set up an account at Redeemer that will allow you to give to Richy with a tax-deductible gift. Simply make your check out to Redeemer and identify it ‘for Richy’ or ‘mission’, and all the monies will go to this mission involvement and investment.
We give thanks to God for the ministry of Richy and Kassidy to Redeemer. The Lord is giving us an opportunity to invest in their lives. Thank you for your prayers and investment. The Lord be with you.
For His Glory and For His Kingdom,
