Unity Missionary Baptist Church – Hickory North Carolina

I did a rescue of the web site for Unity Missionary Baptist Church back in February 2009. I was contacted by a member of the church (Late Pastor's son I believe – if I am wrong please forgive me, trying to juggle so much now) who thanked me for rescuing the website, explained the situation (Pastor went home to be with the Lord – domain had expired, new Pastor came in) and wanted to update the web page (http://www.unitymissionarybaptistchurch.org). We updated the web page, and I gave him the demo login I have at http://www.churchdemo.us. This was set up to enable Pastors and Staff to try out the templates. The church member that was going to do the updating called me today. I installed the templates, and converted their Front Page site over to the templates. I spent an hour or so on the phone helping him understand the templates. Site looks good – and they are going to be up and maintaining it...

God Answers Prayer

We are (as many ministries are) not making our budget, The volume on our Bible correspondence courses has doubled. We have 109 students in Ghana. The cost of postage is up this year. We did a lot of traveling this summer to present our ministry. While a large portion of the expense was covered some was not. Our immediate need was for $500 I put out a prayer letter on Tuesday spelling out our needs. On Wednesday we received a love offering of $450. God (and our supporters) are good! If you are a Pastor – please consider inviting us to your church to present our ministry and consider adding us as a missionary for monthly support. Even as little as $10 per monsth would be a great help! / As part of the cost cutting measures I have elimated one of our shared hosting servers. Our servers are Enterprise level professional servers located in data centers with loads of bandwidth. We still have three servers (for diversity and backup). These are servcers running Linux with 8 Xeon processors (for those of you that are technologically oriented), and RAID hard...

The Weeks Family to Brazil

A year ago a domain had expired (http://www.boliviaforchrist.org). I rescued it and rebuilt the information for the Weeks Family. Last November I received an email requesting I remove the information from the website. I did as I was requested. Since this was a good domain I was trying to find another use/missionary for the site. I received a call from Missionary Weeks on Friday. He wanted to put information back on the website. I gave him FTP access so he can update his website when he is ready./ We (as many other ministries) are being affected by the downturn of the economy. This comes at a time when the Lord is blessing our ministry. We are at double the Bible Correspondence Course volume of last year, 109 students in Ghana alone! We do not have money to buy new courses or pay postage so we are slowing down the process. If you have had any leading of the Lord to support this ministry, now would be a good time. All donations are tax deductable (US Only). Help us to get the Word of God out to a lost and dying world! We are soul winning and discipling worldwide. As a side note, we have applied to Source of Light for a grant ( low cost or free courses). As always, your prayers are coveted for our ministry! Jesus commanded us in...

Tool Kit Ministries, Inc.

A letter from Toolkit Ministries: September 7, 2009 To: FamilyNet International: Dear Bob and Maureen, For the past 10 years you have been faithful in setting up and hosting our website. This has been a tremendous blessing and help to our ministry. In the past we have faithfully prayed for your ministry and only been able to help with yearly financial gifts. After much prayer and consideration, I am happy to say we are stepping out in faith and trusting the Lord to provide support quarterly to help with your ministry. Your ministry is greatly needed to be a watch dog in cyberspace for fundamental, biblically sound churches and for the ever expanding correspondence coureses you provide. We will be praying that other ministries that you serve also consider a monthly or quarterly commitment as well. Thanks you so much for your faithful service to the Lord.   Always in Christ,   Dr. Nancy B. Shields, Dirctor...
