Our regular giving is on target and college expenditure within budget, but we have had a significant fall in one-off giving during the first six months of 2018. The result is that we face a shortfall of £53,000 this year. The shortfall is largely explained by a number of supporters, who have historically given larger gifts, now reaching retirement age and are unable to give as they once did.
We do have an ageing support base and are taking steps to adjust, however it will take a few years for new strategies to remedy the shortfall. Whilst we put in place plans to increase one-off significant donations we are seeking extra crucial funding over the next 2-3 years. This will enable the continued training of Central Asian believers for evangelism, church planting and gospel ministry throughout Central Asia.
Please commit this matter to the Lord in prayer. Perhaps you may know an individual, church or charitable trust that may be able to help?
