Dear Pastor and Missions Leader:
There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year. What started off as promising in January and early February, rapidly gave way to one crisis after another. First, tornadoes ripped through Middle Tennessee and the Chattanooga area taking many lives and causing insurmountable damage. Then COVID-19 hit; then the racial tension in our nation escalated. And we’re just halfway through the year.
However, in the midst of it all, God is moving in Tennessee and Tennessee Baptists have answered the call. Because you gave through the Golden Offering, Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief was on site serving others during all the challenges and obstacles. But even beyond that, your GOTM giving supports many of the ministries in which Tennessee Baptists are engaged that reach people with the gospel. I just want to say “thank you” for your faithfulness.
However, we must not let up. Any way you slice it Tennessee is a mission field and possibly now more than ever. We need all hands on deck for such a time as this. You and your church can impact your community through the Week of Prayer for State Missions and the Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions.
