POWERHOUSE VAN: ($10,000)
We plan to provide $10,000 to support the purchase of a newer vehicle for the Transformation Center program, replacing their existing van. The vehicle is essential to help get mothers and their children to various appointments (doctor, counseling, court, etc.), and get kids to school.
We are continuing to partner with Paulin and Violetta to bring the light and grace of Jesus to Kosovo. Our giving will provide support for the ongoing ministry there, helping them develop a church building and contributing toward their outreach through a summer camp (which our team gets to be a part of as well).
We are excited to once again send a team of students, young adults and parents to Ensenada Mexico to serve in partnership with Pastor Sami and his wife Eva in their ministry to men, women and teens that have been affected by drug and alcohol abuse. This December a small team will be traveling down to connect with Sami and Eva and discuss our ministry focus for our 2020 Spring trip.
The people in TenuBihar face extreme hardship – physically, financially, socially through the cast system, and spiritually. Our continued generosity helps to feed kids, show them love, and aid in practical ways which points them to God’s love in Jesus. God is doing great things and we are privileged to continued to partner with Him and Prakash and Karthiga, in this ministry.

Why Do We Give?
How Do We Give?
Remember this – a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
Since you excel in so many ways – in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love for us – I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7)Sacrificially Giving sacrificially inconveniences us. Our flesh is quick to offer excuses and justification, but the gospel calls us to deep and radical sacrifice. Do we actually give to the point that we feel it and the feeling stings? Does the call to take up our cross (Matthew 16:24-26) not also carry the charge to lay down our wallets and checkbooks?
We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion – how can God’s love be in that person? (1 John 3:16-17)Regularly We should set aside our gifts for God with predetermined regularity. In our culture, we think that translates to “give when you get paid.” When God blesses us with income, the proper response is to set aside a portion of that money immediately to give back to his work.
On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. (1 Corinthians 16:2)
Schedule Your Giving
We get it, you have a lot to remember! Life gets busy between work, errands, and family commitments, and giving gets put on the back burner. Give yourself a break and schedule your giving, so you have one less thing to worry about.
Scheduled giving also offers SunHills greater financial stability by spreading revenue more evenly throughout the year and more accurate financial information on which to plan for future ministry.
