Greetings to those who read our current website for Love For His People.
Throughout our 9 years of ministry, since the founding in April of 2010, I have rarely presented people with the opportunity to support this ministry, other than a short sentence or two at the bottom of my regular Now Think On This messages. But now I am.
In order to further share the mission of what the Lord has called us to – teach Christians about our debt to Israel and the Jews, support Messianic Jews in Israel, share encouraging words (originally called love letters) to readers across the nations, publish books proclaiming the plans and purposes of our Lord in everyday lives, and to assist ones wanting to immigrate (make aliyah) to Israel and help in settling there – the Lord is calling, and enabling us, to expand.
Truths shared in our messages, the books yet to be written and published, and the goals to provide more support for those in Israel, need to be more widely known. I personally cannot do that, having gone as far as I can with what you have seen, primarily without much assistance beyond my own time and efforts. It has also been through the primary funding of family members that we have gone thus far.
With this challenge presented to expand, I approached a local company here in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, who has a good history of helping ministries such as ours with social media and grant funding. They have now given me their quote, in order to accomplish more, as follows.
“I would love to move forward with you. I know you are looking for a $500 per month solution. This is possible on a longer term basis, but to get you in a good place we would want to do the following (which would be an additional fee).
1. Build basic website structured in the way that we could build upon in as we move forward. a. Lead Generation aspects included. b. Teachings included. c. Mission of ministry built out. d. Everything we both feel that are needed. 2. Work with Google to get you into the grants program. 3. Set-up your Google Ads campaign with the goal of being able to utilize their $10,000 per month spend. 4. Plan and build out strategy of ministry to bring people into the fold.
To do this right we would need $2,500 down. I expect the plan, build and approval to go into the end of July. Then we would start on the marketing aspect August 1st for the $500 per month.”
And so I put this out there, seeking those who will help with this goal.
Either through a one-time contribution or a commitment to send monthly support for a length of time, I do ask now for your help.
