Closing the Gap

Dear friends,

The gap has never been wider.

Recently the church has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The distance between the average Australian and God’s Word has perhaps never been as great as today.

Add in busy lifestyles, a persuasive entertainment culture, and ‘always on’ media and you have a population who are largely questioning the very existence of God and the relevance of the church.

Yet at a time when trust in the church is at an all-time low, your faithful support of Vision will guarantee there remains a trusted, consistent and unifying force in the Australian community that will encourage and affirm people in the Christian faith.

As our culture continues to shift away from the traditional church, the importance of our mission grows!

This month we are asking for your help in a very specific way.

We currently have a gap of our own standing before us—a shortfall of funding needed to proceed with the purchase of the new building which will become the hub of everything Vision does for many decades to come.The amount we need is $455,000 by June 1st—over and above our usual operational needs.

All of us at Vision have been amazed and encouraged by what God has done already as together we have stepped out in faith to secure this important infrastructure, and right now we are asking Him to continue to move through His people to close the remaining gap.

Will you prayerfully consider a special extra gift toward this critical project?

In doing so, you will be helping create an amazing legacy as God’s Word is upheld nationwide through this significant infrastructure.

I invite you to join me in putting into practice the declaration of Psalm 78:4 NLT which says:

“We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonders.”

Your donation will be a seed sown in good soil for future generations.

You’ll find more details about our need in our latest edition of Vision Today, or at vision.org.au/newhome

God bless,

Phil Edwards – CEO

PS Please pray as we seek God’s wisdom and direction in raising the gap in funding for the new building.
