I am writing to express my great appreciation to all who have provided the tremendous response to the matching grant, which I mentioned in my e-mail letter less than ten days ago. The Lord has graciously provided an amazing response.
As I wrote on May 21, we have a significant opportunity and a corresponding need. We have been offered a matching grant in the amount of $270,000, if we are able to raise an additional $270,000 to match the grant. As of ten days ago, we still needed to raise $232,502. As of today, that number has been reduced to $35,840.
The need is urgent: First, because the all-or-nothing goal needs to be reached by May 31, 2012—but more importantly because of the massive need worldwide for the Bible, and for essential tools to teach and understand the Bible.
I would be deeply grateful if the Lord might lead you to help reach the goal before the deadline of May 31, 2012.
With my great appreciation for your support, and for your help now with the matching grant, to provide the Bible and Bible learning resources to 1 million people.
Grateful for your partnership in the gospel,
Lane T. Dennis, Ph.D. Crossway, President
P.S. As I mentioned ten days ago, the purpose of the grant is to help provide the Bible and Bible learning resources free to 1 million people globally—free via the Internet, and free globally, anywhere and everywhere, on every major tablet and smart phone device—particularly to people in great need in China, India, and Africa.
