BGMC POPOUT/ COFFEE OUT UPDATE

BGMC POPOUT/ COFFEE OUT UPDATE

It has been 19 days without coffee.   I have friends who are supporting me by waving coffee mugs infront of my face.  Thanks for that Rich Lemberg.  Then I drive through town and realize the cozy coffee shop downtown is CLOSED.  I think it is CLOSED for good.  I know I didn't purchase that much coffee there.  Oh my.   

But it is all for a good cause.   We are raising money for missionaries who need critical supplies to reach their communities.  I'll drink coffee again.  But this is a minor sacrifice so that boys and girls around the globe can hear the Good News of Jesus.   

If you would like to join me by giving up a cup of coffee for one day.  You can join me at--

By donating $5 you can give 15 Books of Hope to a boy or girl who has never heard the message of Jesus before in their lives.

Last year One Hope reached an incredible milestone.  They gave out their 1 Billionth Book of Hope to a young girl in China.   The Book of Hope is a small booklet that gives a clear message of Christ in their native language and in a fun kid friendly way.  

Thanks for joining with me in this endeavor.

Introducing NOvember

Introducing NOvember

I'm giving away a BGMC coffee mug. One lucky winner will win this coffee mug just for liking this post on facebook.  Yes that's right just like this post and you might win it. I'll ship it to you when I let you know you've won.  You can like it right from this page.  Look at the bottom and click the Facebook like button.   

Why am I doing this? Well, I don't need the mug right now. I've given up coffee for the month of NOvember. Yes, NOvember. NO coffee in NOvember. I'm fasting coffee for the month to help raise money for missionaries all over the world. Through BGMC (Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge) we are provided critical materials for missionaries to reach people everywhere with the Good News of God's great love. Sometimes your gift provides a cup of cold water in Jesus' name.

So I'm giving up coffee for a month. It's really not a lot, but I'm challenging all my ministry friends to help me reach my goal. If you would give up one really nice specialty drink or coffee, let's say a $5 cup you can help me reach the goal. We have set up a website where you can join the coffee cover-up.

You don't have to give to have an opportunity to win the mug, you just have to like the post.

BUT if you would like to donate a $5 coffee break, go to the website provided.

I will give away the mug at the end of the month of NOvember.

 

Just a reminder this challenge goes all month.   Although I am having a cup of coffee on Thanksgiving.  Then on Black Friday I'm having a black dark roast Karuba blend.   Then it's back to finishing the month
