Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the Prince of Peace, the Healer of our brokenness, and Hope of the world!
Several years ago I invited you to join me in an extraordinary mission initiative for our conference in response to a world in need and as an act of glad obedience to our Savior's call to love our neighbor. This initiative -- The Bishop's Partners in Mission - is a conference-wide expression of our commitment to Imagine No Malaria to save 100,000 lives and to Mission Central to serve people in need.
The purpose of this letter is twofold. The first is to to inform you and rejoice with you that the fund has received more than $400,000! Praise be to God! The second purpose is to prepare you in advance for a special offering for Bishop's Partners in Mission during the Ordination Service on Saturday, June 11th. This offering is another opportunityfor us to partner in mission. We can do that as a congregation, as a group, as a family, or as individuals. You can be assured that 100% of the fund for Bishop's Partners in Mission will be equally divided, unless designated, to Imagine No Malaria to save lives and to Mission Central to serve people in need. Please bring your gift and the gifts from your church with you to the annual conference where you will be invited to present your gift of love during Saturday's ordination service.
My heart is full of joy and thanksgiving to you for your generosity and sacrificial giving that will bring healing and hope to so many people. Surely, this is an expression of the Spirit of God at work in and through us to carry out the healing ministry of Jesus.
With a heart full of gratitude, your partner in mission,
Jeremiah J. Park
