Grateful for the Amazing Response—Goal Reached!
I am writing to express my deep appreciation to all who have provided the tremendous response to the matching grant. Your response has been amazing—the match was reached today (one day early) at about 9:30am.
Less than a week ago, it seemed like this would be impossible. The Lord has indeed graciously provided far beyond “all that we could ask or think. . . to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and forever. Amen” (Eph. 3:20-21).
Having reached the goal, I would be grateful for your continued prayers as we execute the matching grant projects, namely: to provide the Bible and Bible learning resources free to 1 million people globally—free via the Internet, and free anywhere and everywhere, on every major tablet and smart phone device—particularly to people where the need is greatest in China, India, and Africa.
Any matching grant donations that we may receive beyond the match will be used to underwrite similar projects. We will “close” the match tomorrow, May 31, 2012, with much rejoicing in the Lord (which is also the end of Crossway’s fiscal year)!
To God alone be the glory. “One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your greatness” (Ps. 145:4). And so we do!
With my great appreciation to you for your prayers and for your help in reaching the match—to provide the Bible and Bible learning resources to 1 million people.
Grateful for your partnership in the gospel,
Lane T. Dennis, Ph.D.
