My sister’s friend from Zaandam has sent us further updates of my sister’s fund-raising campaign to the Netherlands.
Here is Mirjam’s update.
All the Easter services are over…
All the Easter eggs have been found and eaten…
Feeling the post-Easter dip?
Don’t know what to do with yourself?
Why not head over to http://www.tinyurl.com/brendalillie
and pledge some money to help Brenda J. Lillie get back to the Netherlands as soon as possible!
Tomorrow night the StageLife Theater production team is having a meeting. On Skype, because unfortunately we’re still not all in the same country. And while Skype is great, sometimes Brenda J. Lillie looks like this, and sounds even weirder.
It would be really great to get her back in the Netherlands so we can get on with building this ministry together. She only needs $340 a month more in order to come back.
If you want to help, please go to http://www.tinyurl.com/brendalillie and pledge. Any amount is greatly appreciated!
The amount is going down! I believe we can have this done before the end of April. Will you help?
Lisa Johnson is not only a very talented artist she is the third member of our Gutters for Jesus team helping to raise funds for Special Touch REACH New England. This vital ministry to the disabled meets monthly to encourage community and to proclaim the gospel to one of the most underserved groups in the world.
One of our goals is to help churches become more aware of how they can serve the disabled in their own community. Recently two of our core group met with a local children’s ministry to do a training on how to work with children on the autism spectrum.

Brenda in St. Bavo’s
Many of you know my sister is a missionary to the Netherlands. In our fellowship missionaries are required to return to their country of origin every fourth year to itinerate and raise support for their mission and to raise awareness of the mission among the churches of their homeland.
Brenda has been home now for 16 months and is almost finished her itinerant fund raising. On February 1 she began the love of God campaign to finish raising the last $1400.00-ish of monthly supporters on February 12th she posted.

Hello WordPress followers. My sister Brenda is a missionary to the Netherlands. She is currently home itinerating (raising funds for the mission). She has a little over 3,000.00 in monthly support to raise plus a sizeable cash budget. She needs a financial miracle. She needs to have the funding raised and be back in the Netherlands by November. We are believing with her that God is big enough to get this miracle done.
Here are some ways you can help:
- PRAY SPECIFICALLY THAT GOD WOULD GET BRENDA BACK TO THE NETHERLANDS ON OR BEFORE NOVEMEBER
- SHARE THIS POST WITH YOUR NETWORKS. THE MORE VIEWS THE LARGER THE PROSPECTIVE GIVING BASE
- GIVE. THE VIDEO ABOVE EXPLAINS BRENDA’S MISSION AND HOW TO GIVE TO GET TO HER WEBSITE TO GIVE.
- IF YOU ARE A PASTOR IN: MA,CT, RI, NH, VT, ME, NY NJ OR AL CONSIDER HAVING BRENDA IN. SHE ONLY HAS TWO MORE SUNDAY MORNINGS BETWEEN NOW AND NOVEMBER BUT SHE HAS SUNDAY NIGHTS FREE AND WEDNESDAYS AND IS OPEN TO PARTICIPATING IN MISSION CONVENTIONS. SHE IS ALSO A DRAMA TRAINER AND DOES WORKSHOPS TO HELP LAUNCH DRAMA MINISTRIES OR TRAIN EXISTING ONES
