Corporate Matching Gifts!

Image from Qgiv

“Double your pleasure. Double your fun!” That was Wrigley’schewing gum tag line. Well, how would you like to double your impact, the impact of your gift?

One of the smartest ways to do that is by giving through a Corporate Matching Giftsprogram.

Many corporations match the gifts of employees, and possibly those of spouses and retirees. Some will even match volunteer hours. Companies typically match the amount after a gift is made, but it is wise to begin the application promptly. Some employers will even set up automatic matching for repeating gifts.

Do you work for Amazon, Northrop Grumman Corporation, GM, or IBM? This are just some of the companies that have a matching gift program. 

That means your gift — whether to Wycliffe’s Worldwide Projects Fund, a specific project or to a missionary of your choice — may have double the impact, just by seeing if your company will match your gift, dollar for dollar.

Breakfast Love

“This is the best way to start a Saturday!”, said one!.

Saturday morning over 30 seniors in our area came for a delicious breakfast of pancakes, waffles, sausage and fruit. We love serving our members. Laughter permeated the room as everyone chatted together. We value people because God does too. Wish you were here!

What’s MACR (May-Ker)?

We arrived at the Holiday Inn Express this past Sunday afternoon. It’s a new hotel on the property of Pioneers, a wonderful ministry aimed at planting new churches. Ken and I met on a missions trip hosted by Pioneers back in 1982 so they are special to us.

We’re here this week for MACR meetings. At Wycliffe Bible Translators, that stands for Member and Care Resources, a part of Human Resources. Ken’s department, Senior Benefits, and Anne’s as well, fall under this department.

Every two years we meet together for several days. We learn about each others roles and how we can work better together. The theme seems to be “Transitions” which is appropriate as Wycliffe USA has a new president, and new COO and a new HR officer as well as many other positions. Our jobs are new too, so we’re in good company.

Today we talked at length about how our work in the area of retirement aids in the vision of Bible Translation. One of the big takeaways was that people made in the image of God have value and therefore we should care for them from the moment they join our ministry into retirement.

Thank you for partnering with us as we serve over 3,000 members of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA.

Wrapping up 2018

Sometimes I go through a day or month and think, “What have I accomplished?” It’s nice to look at a list with items checked off or to look at photos to see where I’ve been. It’s also great to see how my work and service hours are accomplishing much for the Kingdom of God.

We love Bible Translation! We think that having the Bible available in the format and language that you use most often is the best way to know God and His plan for your life. That’s why we’ve invested in Wycliffe Bible Translators for almost 30 years. And you have done so also as you’ve supported us prayerfully and financially.

So take a look back at this short video and praise God for what YOU’VE been a part of in 2018. It’s worth celebrating!

January Wrap Up

It’s February! For some reason, January seemed so long for me this year. I think it may be because we packed it in with so many travels. For this post, I’ll share some photos so you can catch up with us. I’ll be writing a newsletter soon now that we are home for a bit!

What have you been doing this month?

Imitation Psalm 23!

girls walking 3

Laura and Christine, March 1992, Irian Jaya, Indonesia.

It’s January 1, so naturally I’m cleaning my house like everyone else! I came across a journal I kept when we first arrived in Indonesia in March 1992. It’s so interesting to hear my thoughts. I was reminded of things that were so new but became so “ordinary” like lizards that live in your home. We left them so that they would eat the mosquitoes.

One evening, less than a month after arriving the girls and I (aged 6 and 7) wrote a silly poem based on Psalm 23.

M is for Mommy, I shall not want,
She makes me lie down in my bed,
She leads me to taksis each day,
She repairs my clothes,
She guides me through crowds of people for shopping sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valleys of Irian Jaya,
I will feel no evil,
My umbrella and string bag go with me.

She prepares my food three times a day
in the presence of ants.

Surely Mommy and Daddy will follow me to school
all the days of my youth,
And I will dwell in their house
for a long as they can stand me!

With apologies to King David!

Thanks for sticking with us from the heat of Indonesia to the warmth of North Carolina. The work continues reaching the Bible-less people groups of the world!

We saw beautiful sunrises like this as well as sunsets nearly every day! This is looking across a frozen lake.
