We are excited to announce our Giving Tuesday/Year-End Giving Campaign. Never have you had so many ways to invest in kingdom work with Doulos and our partners around the world. We ask you to prayerfully consider one, or more, of the projects listed below for your Giving Tuesday and Year-End donations. As you can see, the needs are great and yet the possible impacts are eternal. Thank you for the ways you have faithfully given in the past and for how you will step up and help now. It is an honor to serve side by side with you and your family.
Our Partner Projects
“Motorcycles for Church Planters”
Doulos has partnered with New Generations (NG) since July of 2019. NG does 80% of their work in unengaged and unreached people groups. Their focus is to create disciple making and church planting movements around the world. A movement is defined as “at least 100 church plants with at least 4 generations of growth”. The Lord has allowed them to be very successful by creating over 130 in 56 different countries.
This amazing fruit has, however, caused many challenges. One of the struggles is for these church planters, coordinators, trainers, and coaches to stay connected to their congregations for training, encouragement, and accountability with them spread out in some very rural areas of the world. Transportation becomes a very real issue. Due to different types of roads, distances between villages and very poor local transportation systems, travel can be very difficult.
Doulos and NG are partnering together in a project, “Motorcycles for Church Planters” to provide transportation to 50 indigenous leaders in 4 different regions of Africa to help them be able to travel to multiple locations to continue to reach people for Christ and to train new pastors and believers. The cost per motorcycle is $1,200, which brings the total cost of this project to $60,000. If you would like to help provide, through your year-end giving, these in country leaders with much needed transportation please indicate that by putting “Motorcycles for Church Planters” in the instruction section of the online giving page or the “for line” of your check.
There are over 770 million people in our world without clean drinking water. Jesus said, “…whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward.” He also said, “…as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” There are many passages of scripture that teach us to reach out and to help meet the needs of others.
This project, “Fresh Water”, with our partner BigLife Ministries, will help us to do what Jesus calls us to do. We are asking you to prayerfully consider helping us put water wells in communities that do not have clean drinking water. The goal will be to put 10 wells in regions without safe water to drink and to strategically place them where there are trained church planters to apply what Jesus said to the woman at the well, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give will never be thirsty again.”
The cost to install each individual well is $15,000. The total amount to fund all 10 of these projects is $150,000. If you are interested in investing some of your year-end giving in “Fresh Water” please include that in your online instructions or on the “for line” of your check.
The story of how Jesus saves is needed in every country in the world but none more than the sixty-six countries in the 10/40 window. There are 5.2 billion people who live in this part of the world where the lowest access to the gospel exists. We are excited to invite you to participate with us in “Project North Africa” with our partner, The Timothy Initiative (TTI), to change that reality.
Together, Doulos and TTI ask you to prayerfully consider giving some of your year-end funds to help us reach the countries of Senegal, Sudan, Nigeria and Burkina Faso, which are all in the 10/40 window. Your financial gifts will help us to train local leaders and to start a multiplicative movement of disciple makers and churches.
Our goal, by the end of 2022, will be to raise enough money to be able to start 400 new churches in these four countries. At a cost of $400 per church planted the total funding required is $160,000. Please help us take the gospel to these difficult areas of the world. If you choose to designate to this initiative, please make that known in the online instructions or on the “for line” of your check by indicating, “Project North Africa”
“Supporting Deaf Leaders”
In India there are 13 million deaf people. The need is great for deaf church planters to be trained and deployed to take the gospel to the non-hearing of this highly populated country.
Our partner to the deaf, DOOR International, currently has 22 deaf church planting teams in India. However, funding for 5 of those teams has not yet been raised and they are asking for our help in providing the money needed to support these incredibly courageous leaders.
The amount needed to fund these 5 deaf leadership teams for the next year is $80,000. Please prayerfully consider making a year-end gift to help these men and women take the gospel to those in India who cannot hear. If you choose to invest in this project, “Supporting Deaf Leaders”, please indicate that in the instruction section online or on the “for line” of your check.
“Gwembe Valley Project”
Doulos and Every Home for Christ (EHC) have been partnering together since October of 2021. EHC, through their Oikos Initiative - “to knock on the door of every home on the planet in 20 years”, have been aggressively working with local churches in 151 countries to get that objective accomplished. We, at Doulos, are extremely excited to be a part of this very lofty but achievable goal.
One of the ways that we can help EHC move one step closer is by coming alongside the work that has already been started in the Gwembe Valley of Zambia, Africa. This area in Zambia is where the Tonga people live. The Tonga people are very hard to reach because their villages are in desert lands without connecting roads and almost no infrastructure. And yet, Jesus loves these people, and we want to be a part of them coming to faith in Christ and to be discipled.
In order to reach the Tonga people, it takes resources of people, translated scripture and discipleship materials. This movement is gaining momentum and we want to help by providing the fuel that they need to keep this incredible work of the Lord going forward. Please prayerfully consider investing some of your year-end giving to the “Gwembe Valley Project.” The resources needed for 2023 is $137,000. These funds will be to produce discipleship materials in their language and for the church planters to travel and train and deploy the church. If you would like to direct your giving to the “Gwembe Valley Project” please indicate that in the instruction portion of the online giving form or the “for line” of your check.
If you would like detailed information about any of these projects, please contact Rusty at email@example.com
