Dear Brethren at ICR,
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen (Galatians 1:3-5).
This letter comes to you prayerfully and with great hope that the addition to your facilities will be built to the glory of our loving Creator, and great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
We have had to sell our church property after our original building was destroyed by arson in October of 1996. We never recovered from this disaster.
We have prayerfully considered where we could put some of these funds to do the most good to reach young people for Christ in this our beloved nation. A nation fast becoming more pagan every day. We see our children's children being indoctrinated with the secular humanistic doctrines of evolution and believe these funds can best be used to help you build your new addition or to assist in the production of your excellent books and videos.
The believers wish you to have the prerogative to place the funds where you see the most need at the moment. Please let me know how the funds were used and I will pass the information on to our group.
May our loving God continue to bless your seminars, publishing and museum ministries.
Yours for the harvest of precious souls for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Dear Pastor McCulley,
Thank you so very much for your wonderful gift; we revel in God's goodness in providing for our much-needed additional building even as our hearts go out to you and your congregation over the loss of yours. The joy that your letter expresses is a wonderful testimony to our Lord's faithfulness and to your resting in His great strength and comfort. Thank you for both your gift and letter!
