My Dear Friend:
I want to personally invite you to be our guest at the 6th Annual Faith Promise Dinner & Celebration in Collinsville, Illinois on Saturday, September 7, 2013.
Because of the growing numbers of people from Illinois who are coming to our 1411 Locust headquarters for shelter this will be the most important Faith Promise Dinner New Life has ever hosted.
The celebration will be held at the American Legion Hall again this year.
We have an exciting evening planned for you. There will be great food, wonderful music, and warm fellowship with our partners and friends.
You’ll hear personal stories of how New Life Evangelistic Center has brought New Life and Faith to many from Illinois who were hurting, hungry and homeless through our caring partners like you.
How we thank God for you!
It is because of caring people like you that NLEC has been able to help thousands of homeless people from Illinois during the past 41 years. We must not stop now.
Everyone deserves a place to sleep and it is because of caring people like you that this has been made possible through the work of New Life Evangelistic Center. Many will be left on the streets homeless if on September 24 the board of Public Service removes New Life’s hotel permit at 1411 Locust. This hearing is taking place because of the petitions filed by neighboring condominium and business owners. The date for the hearing
was extended at the request of the attorney of those filing the petition. This extension to September 24 gives us the time to raise the $65,000 that is still needed for legal expenses and major repairs needed at 1411 Locust and the other New Life Shelters.
You can help by praying for the Faith Promise Dinner and becoming a Table Sponsor. Table Sponsors help pay for the cost of the meal so that every dollar raised goes directly to the ministry. Please consider sponsoring a table or two.
If you are unable to attend, sending a gift of $100, $50, $200, $500 or more will insure that this will be our best dinner ever and we can continue providing for the homeless and hurting. A gift of any amount will help.
August 26, 2013 is the deadline to turn in reservations, so please make your reservations now by returning the enclosed form. To save postage, you may also make your reservations by calling Dulce at 314-881-3218.
I’m looking forward to spending the evening with you. Thank you in advance for helping to make this year’s dinner a success.
P.S. Please reserve your table by August 26, 2013. If you are unable to attend, please be a Table Sponsor. Your participation is needed to make this dinner a success!
