Announcement: Heart of the Shepherd Endowment
To our Devoted Family of Supporters,
At this time of year our hearts and thoughts are filled with gratitude to the Lord for all He has given. We are grateful for the Lords leading, guidance and provision for the mission, Heart of the Shepherd, that operates at the farm, Shepherds Cross. We are grateful for the support that so many have given in prayer, volunteerism, and donations. It is this generosity that allows us to continue advancing the message of the Great Shepherd, in our community and around the world.
Heart of the Shepherd is a Christian, public non-profit organization (501-C-3). The objective of the mission is to teach about farming, and how it relates to God's Word, locally, nationally and internationally. Local outreach includes the Farm Museum, Bible Garden, Shepherding Tours, Woolly Weekend, Living Nativity and Pumpkin Festival. Internationally, this mission works with individuals and fellow organizations in approximately twenty nations. Heart of the Shepherd provides various agricultural projects that empower local, indigenous, impoverished peoples, according to their needs. We provide a "hand-up" and not a "hand-out" through projects such as starter herds and remote, non-electric fiber mills. Outreach always includes Biblical agricultural training, and long term relationship building.
Heart of the Shepherd has a unique opportunity this season to begin an Endowment Fund. This perpetual fund will allow our mission to reach beyond this generation, continuing to impact future generations for the cause of Christ. A generous donation has kicked off this endowment. Our objective is to raise $25,000 by December 29th, 2016. The endowment organization we are working with, Communities Foundation of Oklahoma, will match $5,000 when we reach that goal. Would you prayerfully consider contributing to the Heart of the Shepherd Endowment Fund? Donations may be received by mail, in person, over the phone or online at: http://shepherdscross.com/HeartOfTheShepherd.html. Donations are tax deductible. Please specify if you would like donations made towards the Endowment Fund, or toward a particular nation or outreach project. Heart of the Shepherd sells hand made products, and returns 100% of the proceeds to the people groups that have made them. Visit us at the farm Gift Shop or at our new online store, HeartOfTheShepherd.biz On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude. Together we can make a difference for the Greatest Shepherd of all, Jesus Christ. Shepherding the Flock, Dr. Diane Dickinson Executive Director, Heart of the Shepherd Inc. & Shepherds Cross Inc.
