February is Smiles special month for Gifts & Fundraising.
Officially, February 6th is our Gift Day, but we’ve encouraged over the years to see the whole month as an opportunity to help Smiles prepare for the year ahead.
Luke kicks off some Fundraising with Cookery Classes each Saturday in February. Even non-cooks are encouraged to join us, and Saturday 6th February has a Special Guest from Romania, so you won’t want to miss that one! A great opportunity too for inviting your ‘non-Smiles’ friends! More details here….
Whilst current restrictions make some of the regular Fundraising options more difficult, we have had Sponsored Walks, Runs, Cycles and even Skydive over the past year.
What could you do?
2021 Gift Day (Month) has been designated to to support the new Outreach Pillar and the need of an additional budget for Adi to be able to start seriously putting his Team in place for greater ministry to Children, Communities and Camps.
We plan, initially, for two new Team members, moving to three as we progress, to work in the Outreach Team with Adi, Pastor Vasile and Ioana – creating an ultimate Outreach Team of 5 or 6 people. We are praying at least two will be available by April, but we need support to make these new appointments. Approximately £15,000 ($19,500) per person to cover salary and expenses. Please pray with us during this special month of focus on Gift Support that sufficient will be raised to employ, one …. two …. and maybe even all three! Also pray with us for those who God would Call to serve, will hear and respond so we can share the Good News of the Gospel to more children and families, in the coming year.
To make your Gift Day Offering, use on-line options here, or telephone the Smiles Office to use a Card, or mail your Gift to the Smiles office. In all cases, please designate your Gift to the Outreach Pillar. Thank you.
