A change in fees

August 5, 2008

Dear Friend of Praise International

  I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks as well as the thanks from all of the pastors receiving financial assistance from you their faithful supporters.

Without your faithfulness and generosity  many called servants of the Lord would, by necessity, be required to seek full-time employment to meet the needs of their family obligations.

As I travel around the world, I’m amazed at how these faithful workers of the kingdom accomplished so much with so little.

To that end, I would propose a restructure of the financial assistance you  provide.  We at Praise International are requesting that monthly assistance be increased from $25 per month to $30 per month in the majority of the countries that we provide assistance. Due to higher costs in Eastern Europe, we are requesting that support the increase from $50 per month to $60 per month.

I think we can all agree that $1-$2 a day is one of the best investments we can possiblymake for the future of the kingdom.  

 I look forward with great anticipation to see what the Lord will continue to do through Praise International and your faithful support in the future.

 Serving Him Together,
