Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I know it can be a little overwhelming given the number of needs expressed by the various international ministries which ask Saved by Grace Ministries for assistance. Nonetheless, my heart is touched by the recent responses of compassion and generosity which saved an orphanage in Kenya which was in danger of being lost (see “God Saves Kenya Orphanage Through Your Generous Donations!” for details).
You work hard for your money and have expectations regarding how your donations are being used. Rest assured, 100% of your tax deductible donations go towards the ministry projects you designate. All processing fees and other overhead expenses are paid by Saved by Grace Ministries through its general fund. Undesignated donations go towards the general fund and are used to pay the processing fees and overhead expenses, such as insurance. There are basically three categories of donations: specifically designated, generally designated, and undesignated.
Specifically designated donations are those donations which are made by clicking the Donate button in a page or post regarding a specific mission or project. Any donations received are used as specifically designated/described by that page or post.
Generally designated donations are those donations that are made by clicking the Donate button within one of the general designations located on the right side of the webpage. General designations include Mission Trips, Bibles and Gospel Tract Distribution, and Orphans, Widows, and the Less Fortunate.
Undesignated donations are those donations that are made by clicking the Donate button labeled Saved by Grace, Inc. located on the right side of the webpage. As stated above, any donations received in this category are used to pay processing fees and overhead expenses.
- Saved by Grace Ministries has had a number of requests for Bibles recently in various native languages. Please consider donating to this need by clicking on the Donate button labeled Bibles and Gospel Tract Distribution located on the right side of the webpage.
- I have been invited by Rev. Abraham Siafa of Spring of Joy Ministries to participate in the grand opening of his new church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 24-26. Springs of Joy Ministries will cover the cost of lodging; but, Saved by Grace Ministries will need to cover the travel costs (approximately $500). Please consider donating to this need by clicking the Donate button labeled Mission Trips located on the right side of the webpage.
- It is that time of year when Saved by Grace Ministries has to renew its insurance ($500 by March 29) and pay a number of other overhead expenses. Please consider donating to these needs by clicking the Donate button labeled Saved by Grace, Inc. located on the right side of the webpage.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration of these ministry needs. May the Lord bless you for your generosity.
Thanks again for your support of Saved by Grace Ministries and its various missions and projects. It is through your generous prayers and donations that Saved by Grace Ministries is able to meet the spiritual and physical needs of others around the world.
The grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you always,
