Finish Strong

December 10, 2012

(New update 12/27/2012: Due to the generosity of our friends, we have reached our year-end goal and are now “in the black” by $11,786. When you hear me say “$46,000” on the video, just remember that by God’s grace, we have met this goal. Thank you for your support!)

We’re coming to the end of a great year at Keep Believing Ministries.

Here are a few highlights:

– Traveled to India, Korea and China.
– Printed 100,000 Copies of Anchor (40,000 already given away).
– Started broadcasting 3x week in China.
– Developed Mandarin Internet presence (Apps too!).
– Over 1 million visits this year to our website.
– Social media outreach via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
– Email sermons go to 10,600 people.
– Taught students in New York, Florida and Korea.
– Spoke in Bible conferences across America.
– Internet ministry reaches 225 nations.
– Anchor Book Depot opens in Pontiac, IL.
– Released two new ebooks.
– Released our first-ever Advent devotional ebook.

None of those things would be possible without the support of friends like you. When I look at that list, I think, “Look at what God did through the gifts and prayers of KBM friends around the world!” As a friend of this ministry, you helped make all this possible. 

We need your help so we can finish strong in 2012. You have already been very generous this year in supporting our new China project and the new printing of Anchor. Now we need your help to finish the year in the black. In order to do that, we need $46,000 by December 31.

Perhaps you could give $100. 460 people giving $100 would provide the full $46,000. Some of you will be able to give $1000 or more, and many of you will be able to give $10 or $25. 

You can partner with us by mailing a check to:

Keep Believing Ministries
P.O. Box 257
Elmhurst, IL 60126

Or, you can give online through our Donation Page. All gifts to the ministry are tax-deductible. In order for your gift to be credited for 2012, it must be given online or postmarked by December 31. 

We’re excited about the many open doors God has placed before us. We want to “launch out into the deep” in 2013. We’re asking God to help us establish a ministry office in Dallas and begin to build a staff there. We’ve been invited to lead pastors’ conferences in China. We’ll need to print another 100,000 copies of Anchor.  We’re going to minister in Haiti in May. I’m speaking at the Moody Pastors Conference in late May. We’re scheduled to teach the Bible to students in Florida and New York.

With your help we can finish 2012 strong and be ready to enter 2013 with confidence to minister for the glory of God.

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
