At the half way point in the Matching Gift Opportunity, over $3800 has been donated in support of my mission activity. That equals over $7600 once it has been matched!!

There is still time to have your gift doubled! If you would like to give a single gift or become an ongoing donor and have your first gift matched, visit the Matching Gift Opportunity page. I am hoping to have $10,000 in matched support by June 15!

Important: Please be sure to state your gift is for the matching opportunity in order for it to be doubled, and specify that it should be applied toward my support. You may have your gift doubled even if you have given before (but it must be above current levels of support if you already give regularly). Please see below for further details.
Over $3800 has been given toward my support through the Matching Opportunity. Securing the remaining support needed before departure will put me in position to begin my term of service in preparation to come alongside the Baptist Convention of Zambia in their vital outreach to people of Zambia, utilizing education, economic empowerment initiatives, and discipleship to facilitate positive change for people experiencing significant poverty.

Spring Matching Gift Details

For your gift to be doubled:
* Give a single gift or become a regular supporter. For new, regular supporters, your first gift(s) marked for the matching opportunity can be matched, and subsequent gifts sent after June 15 become part of the ongoing support needed for prolonged ministry in Zambia

* If you are already supporting regularly, give a gift in addition to your current support, or increase your support level (gifts already coming in on a regular basis do not qualify for the match)
* Important: Clearly mark the gift for the Spring Matching Gift Opportunity
You may give
* By mail with a check or money order made out to International Ministries with “Match - Kathy Charland” on the memo line
Online at 
* By phone at 800-222-3872 x2323 (state that the gift is for the 2015 Spring Matching Opportunity when you call)
* Postmark gifts between April 15 and June 15, 2015. The opportunity will end on June 15, 2015 or when the matching pool is depleted – whichever comes first

* Please share the matching gift opportunity with your friends, church, or anyone with a heart for missions to encourage them to participate! You can share via email, Facebook, or Twitter using the "Share/Tweet/Forward" buttons below
