ACTS Lifeboat Outreach ... Urgent Need

Painting “Jesus Wept” by Erik Hollander
Used by permission.

Dear ACTS Friend,

       If you happened to see the updated edition of the movie, Titanic, I doubt if you will ever forget seeing the hundreds of people in the water with so many half-empty lifeboats rowing away from drowning people—1,500 of themand only ONE lifeboat turning back to help rescue others.

       This scene was extremely distressing in that it was a powerful reminder of the millions of people without Christ desperately needing SPIRITUAL LIFE BOATS to rescue them from a lost eternity!


       This scene also brought to mind Fanny Crosby’s challenging hymn: “Rescue the perishing. Care for the dying. Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; Weep o’er the erring one, Lift up the fallen, Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.”

       Dear ACTS Daily Encounter subscriber, let me assure you that ACTS International, publisher of ACTS Websites and Daily Encounter and Weekend Encounter outreach ministries, is totally committed to LIFE BOAT outreach and is actively involved in RESCUING THE PERISHING by reaching as many people as possible worldwide with the saving gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ—EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR! We are doing this in the following ways:

       Every weekday of the year, 373,000+ Daily Encounter world-wide subscribers are receiving a vital message based on God’s Word, the Bible, with a link to the saving gospel message of Jesus Christ in EVERY issue. Weekend Encounter with 7300+ subscribers is also inviting people to accept Jesus Christ as Savior in every issue. And many thousands more are being reached via ACTS web sites which are receiving, on average, forty thousand visitors every month from 194 countries and territories.

       As a result almost EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR people from around the world are stepping into “ACTS LIFE BOAT” of God’s salvation. Since going online in 1998 we have received 43,918 decision for Christ responses! See this encouraging report online at: http://www.actsweb.org/acts_in_action.php#salvation.

Please note that ACTS LIFE BOAT outreach is made possible by the faithful support of God’s people who are committed to working together with us to “RESCUE THE PERISHING and care for the dying by telling them of Jesus, the mighty to save.”

       Tragically however, over the past year, because of the U.S. economy, we have lost almost 50 percent of our regular monthly online supporters which has put our finances in dire straits. Until yesterday we hadn’t been able to pay salaries for the past three months. We are still two months behind.

       Consequently, ACTS desperately and urgently needs many new SPIRITUAL LIFE BOAT ministry supporters who will support ACTS Gospel ministry with a monthly donation of $50, $40, $30, $25, $20, $10 or whatever the Lord has made possible and lays on your heart to give—or even with a one-time sacrificial donation to help keep “ACTS LIFE BOATS” afloat to reach lost and perishing people around the world.

       As an ACTS supporter know that your faithful support is greatly appreciated. Together you are making all of ACTS LIFE BOAT ministries possible. And are helping to win others to Jesus Christ almost every day of the year. If you will earnestly pray that God will provide many new monthly supporters to replace the many we have lost, this, too, will be greatly appreciated.

       If by chance you are not a monthly supporter, will you please prayerfully consider becoming one today. If so, please let us know you are standing with us and want to help keep all of ACTS gospel outreach LIFE BOAT ministries afloat—
which also includes the ministry of Daily Encounter, the advertising cost alone to reach people for Christ is currently costing ACTS $1700.00 per month. Without help we simply will not be able to continue this invaluable ministry which is one of ACTS most fruitful and productive LIFE BOAT gospel outreach ministries.

       We also have had to drop using the critical technical support company we have used for the last decade as we simply don’t have the funds to keep paying them.

       Furthermore, to greatly expand ACTS outreach to reach many thousands more people for Christ, we badly need a new staff member to major on promotion of ACTS ministries to achieve this gospel outreach goal.

       We need to hear from you today, as this is an urgent need as we have been experiencing a drastic summer income drought.

       So thank you for your prayer and financial support this month. Both are vital for the ongoing ACTS gospel outreach LIFE BOAT ministry—and are greatly appreciated.

       As you stand with us again this month, may God richly bless and reward you in His own abundant way.

                                       Gratefully in Christ,
                                        
                                       Dick and Joy Innes

P.S. "Our greatest legacy will be those who live eternally in heaven because of our efforts.”

Continued need for special prayer. This year we have lost one half of our regular monthly supporters; thus there is a vital need to replace these donors so we can maintain our uncompromising gospel outreach.

For Business Witness Cards ... see below!

Additional Outreach Opportunities:
Ralph Porter, a military chaplain, forwards many issues of Daily Encounter to those to whom he ministers. In doing so he is reaching many service personnel with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So we encourage you to also forward copies of Daily Encounter to friends and contacts to help share the message of Jesus Christ with them.
