40x40x40 = huge thanks!
A massive thank you to everyone who has taken part in Release Women’s 40x40x40 Lent initiative. This of course comes to an end with Easter Sunday on April 12. As you will be aware, the money you have saved or collected through this initiative will go to support women in the Strength to Stand groups in Pakistan and Egypt. The best way to send us these funds is by a telephone donation (01689 823491). Please specify that the donation is for 40x40x40. It is still possible to send donations through the post by cheque, made payable to Release International, with 40x40x40 written on the back. Please bear in mind, however, that it may take us longer than usual to process these payments. We also do understand that not everyone will be able to get out to a postbox at this time, so be assured that there is no time limit to sending us the funds.
Is 40x40x40 a new command about how many times we should forgive a brother or sister if they sin against us? No, although maybe it should be! 40x40x40 is a Lenten initiative, suggested by Release International volunteer Margaret, which Release Women is keen to support. We hope that you will be keen to get involved too!
During the 40 days of Lent, could you commit to spend 40 minutes in silence, in prayer and reflection for your persecuted family? In addition, could you commit to give 40p each day to help to give them the tools they need as they live under oppression and persecution?
If just one of you takes up this initiative, 40 prayers will have been offered for the persecuted and £16 will have been raised, but if 100 of you take up the challenge, that’s 4,000 prayers and £1,600! What a difference that will make to our persecuted family.
Thank you, Margaret, for your wonderful suggestion. We pray that you will all be inspired to take part and make a difference.
