Dear Friend of FICM-USA,
We are so thankful for the generous giving of the saints during the first three quarters of 2018. We know that there are innumerable ministries and charitable organizations that are worthy of funding and we are so appreciative when the Lord touches hearts to give to FICM and the work God has called us to do. Thank you!
For Christian organizations such as Freedom in Christ Ministries, the last quarter of the year (October-December) is always a very crucial period for financial health. When it's all said and done, we trust our good and generous Father to provide all our needs (Philippians 4:19) but we know that it is primarily through His people that He makes that provision (Philippians 4:18).
Retail businesses rely heavily on "Black Friday," the day after Thanksgiving to finish the year in the black (hence its name). Thanksgiving is November 22 this year. Non-profits and ministries like FICM-USA have another day that is designed to encourage folks to make charitable donations. It is called #GivingTuesday.
This year, #GivingTuesday occurs on Tuesday, November 27, five days after Thanksgiving. What a great way to invest in the cause of Christ and "pay forward" the freedom that you have discovered in Christ! This year, we are focusing #GivingTuesday to fight the Human Trafficking industry here in the United States.
Our youth and young adult specialist, Chris Campbell, is putting together a comprehensive packet of materials (in both English and Spanish) to be shipped to 100 safe homes, shelters and recovery centers across the nation! For free!
Chris is uniquely qualified to develop this resource. He has a master's degree in Biblical Studies from Trinity Theological Seminary and a master's in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. Chris is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors with 20 years of pastoral counseling.
Chris has already written a book, Finding Elizabeth, which chronicles the story of a young woman who has been lured into sex trafficking and how she finds healing and freedom in Christ. These powerful toolkits will also include video resources and audio resources that will equip those involved in helping those exploited by human trafficking find new life, freedom and healing in Christ.
To produce the necessary videos and other resources for the packet requires $40,000.
