I’m writing to you because we need your help. As you probably know, Christian Life Missions, a non-profit partner of Charisma magazine is a small ministry that was started 60 years ago (April 1956) by the late Robert Walker so the readers of Christian Life magazine could raise money for worthwhile ministries.
Recently I dug through our archives and found the article in 1955 that started it all. It was about how poor the Christians were in Korea after the war and how enthusiastic they were in sharing their faith, holding all night prayer meetings and giving sacrificially. At the end of an in depth report, there was a small box that read:
“Perhaps your heart has been stirred. Should you wish to provide financial aid to struggling Korean Christians and hard-working missionaries you may do so. Contributions sent to “Christians Life” will be forwarded directly to Korea to be used in the ministry of the Gospel…”
Six decades later we continue to raise money through Charisma magazine the same way.
Christian Life Missions is unique in that it gives 100% of donated funds to the ministries as varied as “Feed One” and “Give Away the Word.” We had more projects last year and CLM grew 150% in one year!
But in the last six months we have incurred a deficit in our budget. We’ve given away more than we have raised
I’m hoping you believe what we are doing is worthy and you will decide to give monthly. Your donation will cover our overhead costs so we can continue to give 100% of what we raise to the ministries we raise it for. If you agree to give monthly – any amount – we will give you a subscription to Charisma as a thank you. Even if you currently subscribe, we’ll add it to the end of your current subscription.
If you will give $100 or more a month or a one time gift of $500, we will give you, as a thank you, a copy of the Modern English version (MEV) Bible in a commemorative edition we made for the 40th anniversary of Charisma magazine. We have only 42 copies so it’s first come first served. After those copies run out, we will give you the nicest MEV we publish as a thank you.
There are bigger ministries that are more flashy. We are merely trying to use the resources we have in terms of sharing needs and getting our readers to respond. We’ve decided to ask for your help, knowing you’ll receive a blessing as you partner with us.
Christian Life Missions was one of the 25 charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. We are still members in good standing, without blemish on our reputation. We make our books open to our donors. We are totally transparent, so you can give with confidence. Yet we can’t do it alone. Together we can do more than we can do individually.
