This is not a test. I repeat, this is not a test.

I have never done what I am about to do. (At least not out loud and especially on the world wide web.) Don't take this personally. Unless of course you are compelled to respond.

I know a hand full of international missionaries, well really only two, that actually originate from Africa, and are faithful to the point of risking life and limb daily in their pursuit to live and share the gospel with the less fortunate in China and Romania.

She and he respectively, have faithfully pioneered fruitful ministries, impacting the lives of countless individuals as well as influencing city officials and governing structures in their respective locals. (I am not exaggerating when I say that they are leading catalysts of change in their respective countries.)

I am aware of ongoing financial challenges, with one needing $8,000 by the end of August that would allow her to walk through an open door of opportunity in China and the other celebrating the 10th anniversary of Mana Deschisa Romania. He has a need for more regular supporters to his monthly operating budget in order to grow the ministry.

Here is my request on behalf of Open Hand:

1.) A onetime $8,000 total gift for our friend in China.

2.) Ten new monthly donors for the ongoing support of Marshall Mckenna and Mana Deschisa.

Open Hand will send 100% of these funds to China and Romania respectively. Your gift is confidential, tax deductible and we will not solicit funding directly to any donor.

You can reach me anyway possible and I look forward to hearing from you on behalf of our friends abroad. (my cell is 317-918-0301)

This is not a test....please respond accordingly.
