As you know by now, the vast majority of the eMails we send out are to notify you of new Martyn Lloyd-Jones sermons on Oneplace, a wonderful repository of evangelical sermons that are available for free to enquiring souls.
Twice a year, however, in May and December, we do directly ask you whether or not you might be willing to support our work, as we do not receive any subsidies and are entirely reliant on donations from supporters. We are also somewhat unique, in that (as we say below), we have no staff or office. We are volunteer Board, and our expenses are nearly all for Oneplace and the legal and accounting costs associated with making sure that we are in full compliance with state and federal laws for charities.
Last year, appromixately 50% of our on-line donations came in the month of December, and so it is our great hope and prayer that you might feel called to donate to our work by clicking on the “Donate Today” button at the bottom of this eMail. We also understand, however, that God is in charge of tithes and offerings, and He knows where they are needed the most, so there is no presumption whatsoever on our part – Let God’s will be done. All we are asking is if you would be willing to prayerfully consider if this ministry might be one that you feel called to support.
Finally, please forgive the somewhat repitious paragrpahs below. One of the ways that we saved on expenses this year was asking our designer to set up a “template” eMail on Groundspring so that we did not have to pay design fees every time we sent out a sermon notification eMail, and to enable even a technological Luddite like me to send out an HTML eMail unassisted! May this time of celebration, as we remember the incredible, unmerited, Grace that God showed to us in sending us his Son to save us from our sins, be full of joy for you, and for all those that you love.
To those who have been able to donate to our ministry, we thank you so much. For those who have not had an opportunity, but would like to help us continue funding this ministry, a link to our donations page is at the bottom left of this eMail (your VeriSign secured contribution will be processed by Groundspring, a member of Network for Good). As a reminder, the MLJ Trust is 501 (c) (3) charitable consisting of four Board members who volunteer their time, and no staff. You can learn more about us at www.mljtrust.org.
As always, we only want to be sending these eMails to friends of the ministry who want to receive them, and so if you would prefer not to receive them, simply click on the “unsubscribe” link below and you will be removed from this eMail list.
Thank you again for your interest in the Ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones!
