If this describes you, someone will have to apply to become the administrator from your estate. This person has to pay all debts of your estate and then divide up the remaining assets according to specific rules set out in your state or territory’s Act of Parliament. These rules give no consideration to your personal wishes regarding distribution of your assets.
If you have no relatives and no legal Will, then the government will receive your whole estate.
A Will assures your assets will benefit the people and organisations you care about, according to your priorities.
The most important decision we’ll ever make in preparing for our final day is to follow Christ. Sadly, many leave life unprepared, both for what is ahead and what they leave behind.
While we can be confident in our own salvation, how about the salvation of our friends, family and millions of other Australians?
Writing your Will is a personal matter and it is important to carefully consider what it says. After having made provision for your loved ones, you may wish to consider leaving a charitable gift for Vision Christian Media.
By naming Vision in your Will now, you will assist us to continue to reach the lost of this nation— through our radio, print, resource and prayer ministry, long after your own passing.
The thousands of testimonies we receive every year witness to the fact that Vision’s ministry is effective in seeing lives transformed as people are exposed to the wonderful truth of the Gospel.
By making provision for Vision Christian Media in your Will more lives will be won for Christ.
Thank you for considering to leave a legacy of hope for future generations.
