Greg's November 2014 Newsletter
Happy Thanksgiving from
This was the first Thanksgiving I spent in the Costa Mesa: during the past 4 years,
and it was great to be around for it. I hope you were able to enjoy it with
your loved ones, and that you were able to take some time to recognize all you
have to be thankful for. USA
Having said that, I want to take time to thank you all for your prayers and economic support of Fuego URbano for the past 4 years; and hope you can continue supporting Pepe & Gislaine for 4 more months (until February 2015) when Pepe will start teaching and supporting themselves financially from that. The reason I bring this up is because last month only about 1/3 of the typical monthly support came in, which means Pepe and Gislaine are having to face real economic challenges. Thanks so much.
I have translated their support letter here:
We greet you with the peace of the Lord, hoping that you and your family are doing well. The year is ending and the challenges increase for our family. This month we only received 30% of the total of our economic support, which allows us to pay the rent for our house but nothing more. That was a tough blow for us because we believed that much of our supporters were going to support us until February 2015, but we still don’t know what happened. Our work continues because we understand that it is a calling and commitment with the Lord, and not with men, but we will have to take some tough decisions. We will need to leave our house, sell our car along with some of our things, and move wherever we find work. Unfortunately, we must respect the order of our priorities: God, family, and ministry.
We need to take these actions but we are sad for the people we have been reaching until now, and whom we have been discipling. I am also working to raise up new supporters to pass through this financial problem. I lament the fact that I don’t know you personally so I could thank you personally for your support until now, and we want you to know that we will keep working for God in the place where we are, and we hope to accomplish the dreams and projects that are in our heart. If you wish to write or know more information, please write us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Thanks so much.
FINALLY: As always there are 3 ways you may give financially to Fuego Urbano. For Automatic Monthly Online Donations you may sign up for amounts of $25, $50, $100, or $200 per month. Just go to the right side of my Blog (http://greghaugh.blogspot.com) where it says ‘Recurring Donation’ and adjust drop-down menu to the amount you’d like to give each month; then click ‘Subscribe’ and it will take you through the process. One-Time Online Donations are available as well: click the ‘Donate’ button on my Blog just below where it says ‘1-Time Donation’ and it will take you through the process. Or if you prefer Personal Checks you can make them out to ‘Fishers of Men Fellowship’ and mail them to: Fishers of Men Fellowship,
PO Box 9284, Newport Beach, CA 92658. And all donations are fully tax-deductible.
Thanks so much for all your prayers and support,
Greg Haugh, Jose, Gislaine, Gabriel, and Gean-Felipe Eyzaguirre
