I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you, always praying with joy for all of you in my every prayer, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. – Philippians 1:3-5
Dear friends, mission partners, brothers and sisters in Christ,
We are forever grateful for your support through giving and praying. May the Lord bless you for your acts of love and service through supporting this ministry. We have some important prayer requests for our family and ask you to please join us in praying for the following needs. We have no doubt that the Lord has heard your prayers in the past to help us, provide for us and protect us. Those who pray for and give to missions play a role just as important as the missionary on the field. We are thankful for you.
A couple of important prayer requests:
Please pray for the medical outreach this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We will be In Piedra Gorda, the school in Las Minas and the church in Hato Mayor. There will be free medical exams, free meds for the patients by our friends Anthony and Stephanie Willis who came and served here with us last year. We will be sharing the Gospel with as many as possible.
Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2
Please also pray for provision. We have hit a financial hard spot and are not sure when we can get back to the States to do some fundraising. When donations drop, any emergency or traveling funds we may have gets quickly eaten up in order to keep things going. Our family’s monthly needs, the kid’s schooling and many financial ministry commitments remain. That’s where we are at unfortunately. As of right now we can’t afford to pay the kid’s school for the month and couldn’t make a trip home even if we wanted to.
Still, you did well by partnering with me in my hardship. And you Philippians know that in the early days of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you alone. For even in Thessalonica you sent gifts for my need several times. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the profit that is increasing to your account. – Philippians 4:14-17
It has always been a struggle raising money from out of country. By God’s grace we have gotten by in the past. And since Yeison’s visa hasn’t been approved, our past trips have been very brief. That doesn’t give a lot of time for travel and needed fundraising for family and ministry. The ideal situation would be to have new churches or individuals come on board as monthly mission partners. Sharing the needs with others who may be able to help, or a one time gift of any amount is also very helpful and very appreciated. But it is the faithful monthly supporters who help get us through the year. And right now we are in urgent need of several new mission partners to get where we need to be financially and finally get “out of the red.” We ask that you share these needs with others if you can.
Please pray about how you can help. Thank you and God bless.
And my God will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:19
In service to our Lord and King,
Antonio Salgado Jr. and family
If the Lord so lays on your heart to give back to Him by supporting this ministry, you can send your tax deductible gift to:
CENTRAL MISSIONARY CLEARINGHOUSE
P.O. Box 219228
Houston, Texas 77218-9228
CMC (who receives funds for us) serves hundreds of missionaries, but they ONLY receive the funds for us and in no way have control over how the funds are to be spent or what we are to do as a ministry, which gives room to be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading and the liberty in making needed adjustments for emergencies and priorities. This is one of the reasons why we went with CMC. There are also three trusted pastors which sit as our mission board.
You may begin sending your support to the Salgado DR Mission at any time at the address above. (Checks should be made payable to Central Missionary Clearinghouse or C.M.C.) But include a note on a separate piece of paper that says Antonio and Christen Salgado / Dominican Republic.
You can also give to the ministry here in the DR online through “click and give” at the CMC website.
To get started you just need to click on the link below and register the first time. Just a simple click on the donate button on their page (see link below), and then click the “click and give icon/button”.
You will then have a private giving solution that comes with many benefits to you the donor. If you have any questions please call the office (tel:1-800-262-7729 or 281-599-7411), and they very kindly will walk you through what you need to do.
You can also donate to this ministry online with Paypal. Click the donate button below and you can send support of any amount directly to the ministry. You can choose the option of doing a one-time donation and this is the fastest option to get funds to us.
Unfortunately through Paypal we are not set up for receiving recurring donations at this time. But the other online giving option above does the recurring monthly donation option. Simply register one time and that’s it.
For tax exemption, you must send your donation through Central Missionary Clearinghouse (CMC) at the address above.
We do not use a sending agency that gets a percentage of the money donated, so you can be sure that your gift goes directly to the mission field.
Whatever you decide, thank you so much for praying for us and helping this ministry. God Bless You!
