Dear friends and supporters of Asian Mission for Christ,
Enclosed you will find many updates regarding the happenings in eastern Asia, and here stateside. It surely is an exciting time and God is moving within and amongst all parts of AMC. On behalf of the board of AMC, I am so very excited to share that we were recently informed that our application to the IRS for tax exempt status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has been approved! We received notification of this via mail on June 26th. This is a huge blessing to the organization and will continue allowing your donations to be tax-exempt. Thank you for your prayers surrounding this!
Additionally, like before, we’ve included updates on all parts of AMC. We like to share how all avenues of the organization are doing but know that your donations are given exactly how you designate them.
As a reminder, you can connect with us anytime by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 419-606-8494 or visiting our website at asianmissionforchrist.org. Regular updates about the orphanage are posted on a Facebook group page called: Chiang Mai Children’s Home – Ahti’s Orphanage so please feel free to follow us there as well! If you have not sent us email contact information, please do so with your next donation so we can keep our records up to date. We’d love to send out updates electronically in order to distribute information more quickly, and to save on printing and mailing expenses. We would still mail out updates to those who would like to receive letters, as we know this is a valuable & preferred method of receiving updates for some.
Currently, AMC’s greatest need is to adequately fund the Lisu Bible Institute (LBI). When LBI is in session and students are being taught, it is a very effective way to train leaders to take the Gospel back to their own villages upon graduation. LBI needs $3,000 per month to operate which includes basic expenses as well as professors’ salaries and students’ tuition, as most LBI students cannot afford tuition on their own. If we can get at least $2,000 per month, LBI will be able to bring in professors and students to begin a semester, in hopes of building from there to reach $3,000 per month. Right now, AMC receives about $300 per month for LBI. Please let us know if you or your church know of any individuals or groups who may be interested in supporting LBI. We would love to share more with them!
Thank you for your continued support of AMC. Without your generosity, the work being done in Thailand, China & Burma that you are about to read of would not be possible.
Jeremiah Nguapha and AMC Board
