Greetings and Salutations,
I pray that this letter finds everyone of you experiencing the goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today, is Friday, April 15, 2011. It is also, the day we launch Sheaves For Christ (SFC) 2011. The theme for SFC 2011 is “WHY? 1 lost = too many!”. Why, do we do what we do? Why, do we give like we give? Why, give of our finances? Why, give of our time? Why, give of our talents? Why, pray? Why, fast? Why, read the Word of God? Why, press for revival? Why, do outreach? Why, have camps and conventions? Why? 1 lost = too many!
One member of our family, lost, is too many. One friend of ours, lost, is too many. One backslider, lost, is too many. One member of our community, lost, is too many. One person in our city, lost, is too many. One member of our county, lost, is too many. One member of the Mountaineer state, lost, is too many. One member of our country, lost, is too many. One person in our world, lost, is too many. It is time for the church of the living God to rise to the occasion and realize we are at war! It is time for us to fight like we have never fought before, give like we have never given before, and reach like we have never reached before. Why? 1 lost = too many!
I write to you today to launch our 2011 SFC Campaign “Why? 1 lost = too many!”. I believe that in 2011 we can raise our greatest SFC offering of all time. Together, we can make a difference. I want to challenge you to begin raising funds now for the great cause of SFC. In the following months we will be in contact with you through letters, e-mails, phone calls, presentations at District Conference, Camp, and other events, in order to raise money for this great cause. I pray that each one of you will support the WV District Youth Department as we try to make a difference in our world. Why? 1 lost = too many!
Yours in Christ,
WV District Youth Secretary
