Mike day

Saturday is Mike's birthday!

I know that one of his greatest concerns is to raise enough support as he works full-time for FOCUS at the University of Tasmania. (Uni students aren't exactly the most affluent individuals.)

So, I got the idea to surprise (hush hush) Mike by helping him raise some of the support he needs.

My idea is that if everyone gave a minimum of $5 each that it would take care of a good chunk of his support.

Would you please consider donating $5 to his work?

You can make your donation here. Be sure to select Mike Jolly in the "worker" field.

Also, if you'd like to keep up with his work you can check for regular updates at mikejolly.blogspot.com ... recently, he has posted a number of posts containing the vision for FOCUS next year. Exciting stuff.

Remember ... shhhhh!

Note: If you are overseas and the form doesn't work for you (might not work if you have a Visa card), you can download a form linked at the top of the donation page and mail in a contribution.

Thanks so much for making Mike's birthday special for me!

I was just wondering... how come he won't read this?

Bah ... as if you wouldn't have DD facilities online. Oh well :) It'll get there in the end. Great idea Christine :)

That's a nice idea for your hobby's b-day. Well, since im in the phillipines and cant donate, i'll just PRAY for you guys. Pray for the FOCUS ministry and that many students there will accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and for them to continue to serve Him. God bless!

Alan said...

OK, this is getting ridiculous. I have updated (counting...) thirteen times since your last post.
